Since I last posted the Easter Bummy (what Allie Rue called it) story I've received so many emails with really cool comments and concerns. I had no idea so many people from all over the world where reading this BLOG, I hope we as a team can get on our feet for Sea Otter, we've over come so many obstacles in such a short period of time to have such a small group of people to set us back! I still don't have any tools, bikes, or parts in my possession and we only have 14 days until the first race at Sea Otter. Talk about working on a tight time line, ok, ok, ok I've got some other things on my mind other then crying over spilled milk!
I got's me a motorcycle!!! That's Right a big bike, not a scooter, a KTM 250 EXC (2 Stroke), damn that thing is soooo damn fast, for reals, I'm busting wheelies in 4th gear and going fast, burrrrraaaaa! One of the funny things according to eye witnesses; is seeing a skinny 130 pound ex-cross country racer ripping around on a "big" bike. My ex-Independent Fabrication teammate Ken Helgeson has convinced me that I need to race a Hare Scramble this weekend, so I've only owned the bike for 4 days but I'm in for a 2 hour endurance motorcycle race north of Denver...keep your fingers crossed for me.
Looks like someone bought my scooter in FL, so now I have to learn about freight shipping a scooter. Hummm? Oh well it will be a fun learning experience.
Oh if anyone has a ton of bicycle shop experience and is looking to relocate to Colorado Springs send you resume to Mike Blackmore (a.k.a Blackie) c/o Colorado Cyclist and see about getting your self a jobby job at a sweet ass mail-order company! See Blackie I told ya I would post it, just better late then never, right?
