Pressed for Time

It was a late night fixing broken exhaust, completing nightly chores, eating a quick dinner and then going for some much needed some sleep. For a great description of yesterday’s events, please see the excellent summary and photos at We are still OK having completed all of Stage 6 miles. Note that 5 of the top 12 bikes are Henderson’s at this point. Most impressive? Single cylinder, belt drive 1911 Excelsior!

The alarm went off this morning at 4:30 am…I type these words while having coffee then out to get bike ready. Our route instructions should be available at 6:45 am. We are off to Spirit Lake, Iowa today with planned stop in the Indian Motorcycle factory. More photos and news when there is adequate time….
