Viva Giro!

Well we did it, we competed in the Moto Giro East, and had a great time.

Due to time constraints we were unable to compete in the Sunday afternoon run but we did the Saturday 150  mile run and the Sunday morning 100 mile run to Max BMW for lunch.

Super bunch of guys (and gals) , kudos to all competitors and volunteers, we were encouraged to go out and have fun and we did.

I apologise for not taking more pictures but it’s hard to keep your head on straight in one of these things and try to capture the flavor of the event at the same time.

Dave Roper competed and looked the part on his  ‘bacon-slicer’ Guzzi. A little drama as the chain derailed on a bumpy hill and locked the rear wheel but it didn’t take long and he was back in the hunt.

That’s me in the main pic with my Benelli / Wards Riverside 250 which did the run in fine shape with no major problems at a good clip overall.

We did at least 300 miles in three states over broken and some smooth pavement along with lots of gravel roads over hill and down dale and even a few miles of mud thrown in just to see if you were paying attention!!

Here’s a link to some pictures of the event
