Parks,

I don't think the 50cc Cub I got from you will be in the giro, still some electrical issue to work out, but some of the bike may be---my plans are to temporarily stick that sweet running motor in my blue cub for the event.

It took me a bit to get your pun...........duh!

By the way, if you are running team Taco, I heard that Team Motobi already won!

Jack, if you're riding a 50, can I take that there are not any giant mountains ?

Dale,

I am not sure what I will be riding, but I think the honda 50 would be the most fun. I may have my wife bring it to the lunch stop and I will ride it on the afternoon loop Sat. There are a couple hills but nothing that would stop the bike. When I was a kid we would get the 50 up the big steep hills by jumping off the bike as it started to lug down, and run along side it until we reached the top, then jumped back one. Of course if riding two up the passenger would have bailed much closer to the bottom.

Damn I had fun with that bike riding it in the fields and a few back roads back in the 60's.

No big vermont mountains.. Just NY hills.

By the way, Champ, do you know how many bikes are actually entered overall? A while ago Bob was talking 92, but that really seems high.

Just got back from a 60 mile shake down. The Motobi 125 is ready to go. Now I just have to pack my tank bag with a roadside fix-it kit and I'm ready to rip up some Catskill roads. After all I am the poster boy!!

Everyone knows I'm a Honda guy...but man, in the looks department, the Hondas and the Motobi's are a world apart. Those Moto's are just plain beautiful.
