It's become part of the culture.

(I'm only allowed to say popo because I lived in inner-city baltimore).

That fencepost at 2:06 ripped off my video camera.

NoPo was kind enough to retrieve it for me.

Thanks again.

We're torn on this one.
As in, looks like could be major fun ...
But at the same time, worry about pe'oing the local populace who already hate motorcycles.

Decisions, decisions.

It is major fun! A lot of people cheer you on, take pictures, video, even bring their kids out to watch! You just have to experience this, it is one of the most fun days I ever had on a motorcycle!

Agreed...
Only 5% or so of the locals appear concerned / frustrated / hostile.
It's totally worth it.

My ride last year...the shovel guy is in there somewhere (12:50).

It's long (22min), but there are some captions! No soundtrack - hey it's only my second video!

We should figure out where is yard is and the night before extend his fence height or replace his shovel with a small trowel.
