Wonder if they'll let me run my cb450 as a sweeper bike or something.
I don't have a tiny bike, and don't want to buy another.

I'm selling my Bridgestone Hurricane 175 Scrambler that I've used in the past 3 giros. Great bike, fast, handles, all set up. It only let me down last year because the coil failed, which I will replace. I bought a 58' Cub for the giro, just wanted something different.

Tex,

What year are those G3 Kawis? Fall Giro is for '68 and older, or LIKE KIND, which allowed my 69 CA160. I wrote B.Bove and could only get the dates out of him at this point. Hope I don't have to work but I have to make hay while the sun shines being self employed.

DGY, I would also like to see the shots of the cub. I have a '55 that will sometime get together. Had it almost done last June, then my whole town filled up with 5 1/2 feet of water in the houses. Bike was in the cellar on a wooden work table. Table floated then tipped. What a mess.....

jack,

they are 1971's. that's why if they won't let us compete, well be forced to follow and fuck around. sounds like a good way to blow a weekend.

Tex,

As I understand it, Bob Bove would have the call if your bikes could participate. Last fall there was an early 70's vertical 175 with Blinkers....didn't really fit in, but was there.

They generally let you compete if your bike isn't way out of synch with the event, but only to fill in spots that haven't been filled with legit' machines. I expect at next Falls giro, you won't see any machines that don't qualify. In fact, it would pay to sign up ASAP as there certainly will be more new riders interested in competeing. As I understand it, first refusals will be offered to past riders first. I think Bob will probably cut it off at around 100 riders and we had 70 last year, 40 the year before, and I think 23 for the first year.

The first year was the best. I did a write-up on it for some mags' (almost got it in Cycle World, but the pics weren't good enough <sniff>). I'll see if I can post it under a different heading for those of you that may want to read it. It was cool, we did it during Hurrican Ivan and all the creeks overflowed, we almost lost Camelhairy when he did his Moses impression.
