SV/FZ1 Rally TIME!!!!

Headed to the gap in a few hours for the SV/FZ1 rally, bringing my TWF shirt so I can be on the front page. Will try to get R1 and Jeeps in on the pic if we can all meet up. R1 said you were coming saturday right jeeps? I will send you my cabin number and R1's room number at the hotel at fontana.

Later guys, will try to get some good pics.

I have TONS of pics so far that I will post up when I get back to PA. I am just so exhusted right now, and don't have the time to post all of them up right now. I've got a lot of pics of bal_sak and I just about dragging our knees, and some of KatanaMan and VolEngineer passing by some tight turns. VolEngineer is Crazy!!! He was staged in the middle of the freakin road taking a video shot of Bal_Sak and I on the skyway. I came around the turn and bam he's in the middle of the road on the yellow line taking video. It's a good shot tho... Man I've got some great pics to post up so far.... The best part is we still have all day Saturday and sunday morning.

I will be making a video of everything also. I will need to put a lot of work into this one to make is so awesome so it may take a few days before I get the video posted.

I'm going to get some sleep now.

It was supposed to a 9 hours and 57 minutes, however I did it in 9 hours exactly and that included stopping a few times, and registering for the room.

Not bad at all. I figured it was just over 8 for me. I think I am going to try this next year. It is going on the list.
This with the new baby it was a definate no but in a year maybe.

it would be great to get this going.

Traffic was horrible (not unusual for a weekend) with the rally and a poker run. I still enjoyed meeting other TWF'ers This weekend.

Everybody needs to rag R1 about getting a stabilizer. He almost bit it in front of me from not having one. Get that damn stabilizer R1.

Oh yeah for sure!!! I am still thinking about that! I was on the road coming back to Fontana which the road is a POS by the way, I was at 130+ mph when all the sudden I got tank slap REALLY BAD out of no where. The front end just wanted to come up and the bars were slapping back and forth. My @ss hole tightend up on that one. I thought I was gone. I some how corrected it, and slowed down a little bit. Then Jeeps passes me on one wheel, and I followed him.

A stabalizer will be ordered soon!!!

Ok I'm going to hit up one more ride before I head out today.

I got some serious head shake today too. i felt just like you did. My front tire was chirping. i thought for sure I was going down. i was riding through a real ****ty patch of road. I gotta look into a dampner too. Expensive, but worth it.

Hey guys,

I am officially back from the rally. That was a freakin blast. Easy ride home. I don't envy R1 and his 9 hour trip. This is the only photo I will post because I didn't bother to use my sh*tty camera and let katanaman and R1 do all the shots with their good cameras. Actually I may put up a couple pics of me conquering a mud cliff on the skyway, but this is the photo I will submit of me wearing my TWF shirt from the contest. It's the group shot at the overlook.

From left to right

Bal_sak, Katanaman, R1, jeeps, jeeps buddy I don't know if he is a member here, and me.



It was a lot fun, but it is always good to be back home. They gave away a ton of cool stuff. Full suit leathers, jackets, in line indicators, hot bodies undertails, tires, $100+ gift certificates, tshirts, sliders, other stuff, but all I got was a cheesy multi tool thing that is pretty neat. What was really odd was that morning before I won it I had to borrow a screw driver from R1 and Bal_sak to readjust my idle. Now I got my own little tool thing so I don't have to remove my bike tool kit which is a pain to put back.

Your conquering hero! Yes, I am an idiot. Thats all the pics you get, the rest I leave to R1.
