Yes they did, spent all day riding the Transalp up and down the Cleveland Memorial Shoreway past the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame watching folks from 50 to 95 race. One vintage dude was nearly in tears when the police told him he was going to be pulled off the course because the Parkway had to be opened at noon. He still had 18 minutes so I asked them if they would escort him until noon and give him a chance to make it to he finish, he made it with 8 minutes to spare, the final finisher. When we got him off his bike, he was totally spent and said he'd never ridden that far before, it was only 25 miles but to him it was like 100.
2 motorcops on Harley's rode with us for a lap or 2 before pulling off and just sitting at the finish line. Some 'tard with the microphone tried to make it like Don and I were racing when we came in from the end of the women's race and mistook my Transalp for a Beemer. The dude needs glasses, that TA has way more style than a Beemer!
I'll be back up there tomorrow till noon again for the 20k Race
