Doug,
What is your source for the Duros? I can only find them in 130 and I need a 140. Thanks.

sure, it may not go everywhere. but it'll go more places than most peoples bikes, simply because they dont try to go ANYWHERE.

BTW, right now, I'm riding the dirtster around in the carpathians. Made one pass today, the one tomorrow is blocked by snow. But I gotta TRY...

Hi Doug,
We spoke last year at the Barber Vintage Races and years before at the Horizons Unlimited meeting in northern California. I have a friend in Agabat Turkmenistan that has an apartment full of side car rigs (M150, Ural, Izh, Dneprs). She's picking them up for a few hundred bucks a piece but she needs some help shipping them back to the USA. Do you know anyone in that area that could help?

and so it begins....

OUCH!

Im gonna have to sell tshirts again!


*Welcome to the 2014 Motorcycle Cannonball*
*
*
* 110 years ago one man set out to become the first person to cross the
North American continent on a motorized vehicle. George Wyman's bold sense
of adventure took him and his small motorcycle from one ocean to the other,
forever setting the standard of endurance for rider and machine. The
perfect measure of worth for two-wheeled contraptions and the people who
built them. *
* *
*We would like to invite you to join us for an adventure across America
. On September 5, 2014, one hundred Motorcycle Cannonball riders will
start a two-week journey across the United States on motorcycles built
before 1937. This run will be coast-to-coast. The route will start in
Daytona Beach, Florida, and end in Tacoma,Washington. While planning a
relatively direct route, we also made sure to take in some of the best
scenery this country has to offer. This route will be scenic, yet more
challenging than any that has come before. Averaging 300 miles per day and
topping out at 11,990 feet, this will be a true endurance run. This route
will not be easy by any means.*
* *
*The run will start at the world's most famous beach on the east coast of
Florida. Daytona Beach is rich in motorcycle racing history and will be a
fitting Official Start. The route will then take us through the lakes and
forests of northern Florida and into Georgia and the Great Smoky Mountains
. In Chattanooga, Tennessee, we will be treated to a fantastic hosted
reception at Coker Tire World Headquarters and Museum. Traveling through
the heart of Tennessee we will visit the Cyclemos Museum in Red Boiling
Springs. After riding through the "Land Between The Lakes" region in
Kentucky, we will cross the Mississippi River at Cape Girardeau,
Missouri. Crossing
the Ozarks in Missouri will bring us to the wide-open plains of Kansas,
where we will have our one rest day. Our riders will meet the Front Range of
the Rocky Mountains at Colorado Springs where we will be stopping at the
Rocky Mountain Motorcycle Museum. Famed motorcycle artist David Uhl will
be hosting a big event for us at his studio in Golden, Colorado, the night
before we climb 12,000-foot Loveland pass to cross the Continental Divide
the first of three times. The entire route through Colorado promises to be
spectacular. Entering Utah through Arches National Park in
the Moab region, we will make our way to Springville, Utah, where riders
will be treated to a private tour of Jeff Decker's personal studio where he
creates his motorcycle masterpieces in bronze. The newly opened Legends
Motorcycle Museum of Springville will also be hosting a reception for our
riders. As we leave the shores of the Great Salt Lake we will travel out
into the desert with a brief stop at the world famous Bonneville Salt
Flats. The
High Desert of Utah and Nevada will give way to the mountains and forests
of western Idaho as we follow the Little Salmon River all the way to the
Washington border. From the Columbia River Basin we will enter the Cascade
Mountain Range and Mount Rainer National Park. The Grand Finish of the Run
on the shores of the Puget Sound in Tacoma will be at the world-class LeMay
Museum. *
* *
*Our preliminary schedule will be 17 days, with 16 days on the road and one
day off in Junction City, Kansas. The event will start on Friday, September
5, 2014, with registration, motorcycle inspection, and an optional Practice
Run on Wednesday and Thursday, September 3 and 4 in Daytona Beach. The day
off will be September 12, a Friday when shops are open. The Grand Finish
will be in Tacoma on Sunday, September 21. There will be a Welcome Dinner
in Daytona Beach on Thursday, September 4 and an Awards Banquet in Tacoma
on Sunday, September 21. There will be a hosted event and reception at
many lunch stops and nearly all of our overnight stops.*
* *
*This diagonal route across the country could certainly include all types
of weather, from tropical storms and 90-degree temperatures in the South to
freezing temperatures and snow in the mountains and the North. With 12
hours of daylight, we will average around 300 miles per day, culminating in
approximately 4100 miles. All bikes will run the same route in an allotted
time schedule. Motorcycles will need to maintain at least 50 mph on
straight, flat roads. We estimate less than 300 miles will be run on
interstate highways, and less than 10 of those miles are urban interstates.*
* *
*The 2014 Cannonball will be a competition endurance run. The competition
will involve correctly navigating the route using each day's Course
Instructions. The winners will be the motorcycle/rider teams that cover
the most on-route mileage over the 16-day run, within each day's specified
time schedule and in compliance with the Event Regulations. Their will be
three classes of competing motorcycles: Class 1, motorcycles 700 cc. and
smaller; Class 2, motorcycles 701 cc. to 1000 cc.; and Class 3, motorcycles
over 1000 cc. The winner will be chosen based on miles traveled within an
established time schedule. Ties will be broken by class of motorcycles,
then age of motorcycle, then age of rider. *
* *
*The entry fee will be $2500. This year with the help of our travel agent
we hope to keep hotel cost under $2000 for 18 nights. Hotels are chosen
based on the proximity to the route as well as number of rooms and parking
available. With a group our size we are able to negotiate a fairly decent
rate at some of the better hotels in each city. Breakfast is often
included at the hotels and most nights will include a dinner at our hosted
stops.*
* *
*Currently the 2014 event has more interested riders than we can
accommodate. If
you are receiving this e-mail then you are being offered a spot in the
event. To better help us in our planning, we would ask that you please
respond to this e-mail within 48 hours and answer the following questions.*
* *
*1. Please confirm whether or not you will be entering the event
and that you would like an entry form to be sent to you.*
*2. How many people will be on your team including the rider?*
*3. How many hotel rooms will your team require during the
event? Two beds or one?*
*4. Will you have a support vehicle? With or without a
trailer? The length of the trailer?*
* *
*This information, though tentative and subject to change, will help us
ensure that our entire group be accommodated. *
* *
*Once you have confirmed your entry we will send you the Official
Motorcycle Cannonball Entry Form. The completed entry form and entry fee
must be returned before January 15, 2014. *
*
*
* A detailed route and riders list will be added to our website within the
next week. www.motorcyclecannonball.com *

Doug, I'll be in for a shirt or two - just post up the info when the design and order details are sorted out.

And yahoo! I should be able to watch the start at Daytona and maybe even leap frog ahead to some points up the route.

You have friends? The man takes a extended leave of absents from posting and he thinks he has any friends left.

Some peoples children never learn!

Doug re-post your Pay Pal info and maybe we can help buy a tank of fuel for the 29' Harley. Or a T-shirt to put under the 29' in the hotel parking lot to catch the oil.

Oh man I shouldn't post this, I might hurt someones feelings. Screw it, done.
