Who's going to do the GIRO?

I want a report on how Mt. Equinox goes.

The 50's are NOT going to make it....well...not in any reasonable amount of time. This is a long steep road.

Should be fun.

Registration. Check.

Hotel reservation. Check.

Working like a fiend on the bike. Check.

This past week? Fuck.

It's all gone to hell and I think I'm out. I'm bummed squared. Maybe be able to make it up Sunday.

Mt. Equinox? That'll be something. Now I'm really bummed.

There's always the Spring I guess.

Cheers,
Leo

With the date change this year I just can't make it. It bums me out--I have been in the last 4. Sent in my form, but couldn't reschedule two big sports picture jobs I always do this weekend. I would blow them off, but they bring in enough to get thru the winter.

I'm looking forward to the reports.

Leo, I have a Honda 50 you could borrow! It would take you about a week to make it up the mountain. I was going to ride old faithful CA160 or the Duc.

Be careful Dale- his win-at-any-cost Honda hatred may make him appear to be 5 feet tall. Don't fall for it

Sorry I can't be on Team 160 this time---it would have been OUR turn to take that trohpy!

I wouldn't worry about "the guy" on the Benelli, with crappy italian brakes and all his mass, he will be at the bottom in no time, but just let him go first to be safe.

Wish I could be there, but money talks and need to make hay while the sun shines.

305 Dream Bagger and CB77 hotrod ready. We will RULE on the hills with all that mega-power. Brakes; well they work. Glad I got rid of those ribbed tires though.
