Myself and Ned along with Jonah are teamed up with Rally Pan Am. Tim Morton of Baja Bound will be the mechanic for Ned and I. I originally thought I'd want to wrench on the bike or at least help with the maintenance but after all the work I've done on this thing and the number of times I've taken it apart and put it back together I really hope I don't have to touch it at all during the rally.

I guess a thirty second pit stop for a hug and a squeeze really won't cost to much time in the scheme of things...

I bet I know somebody who doesn't think so much of the stop and squeeze plan.
