Don't worry about me drunk riding, the motor wasn't even running lol. It was a pretty epic fail on my part.
Glad no one found out. ;)

I arrived during the rider's meeting and James had me sign the waiver - dunno if that counts as fully checked in or not.

Yeah but 50% of the Vespa's finished the race while only 37% of all other vehicles combined finished. Not as glorious as a Toyota or KTM sponsor but impressive none the less.

On another note: I PM'ed Schickmester/Jason about things in NJ. He is fine but alot of friends and family were not so lucky. Told him I was donating to the Red Cross to help out. Any that can donate, please do. Said hello to everyone and said he misses TX. We miss him too and wish him well.

Thanks, Foto. I have been keeping up on fb and his parents had a really close call with destruction.

My kid's "beer and Halloween candy" emergency provisions held up in New Haven . They never lost power or water. Thankfully.
