It was great to meet Smedlin and his wife this weekend at the rally!! He is a hell of a nice guy and glad I had the chance to meet him. His bike was looking great in the bike show, how did you fare in the contest Smedlin??
Wasn't enough bikes in the "normal" metric cruiser contest. So they ended up combining categories. I (and some of the m109 guys) ended up being put up against the true "show bikes".
We had cool looking bikes, but we could not compete against those types of bikes. Wasn't really fair, but nothing we could do..
Also, the Saturday contest (with the Harley's) was a large panel of Judges that walked around and voted on the bikes. The metric contest just had some (one) guy who looked them over.. was very very unorganized.
It was cool to be able to say I did it.. but won't do it again.
(btw, some guy with a 900 won (second place I think) best "metric bagger/fairing" category. I have some pics of him holding the trophy. But I don't know who it was. I recognized his bike from here though.)
I hope to ride tomorrow for what is likely the last time this season, supposed to be a high of 39F and some sunshine. If I can get in a half hour after work and then change oil and do the rest of the winterizing she will be put to bed for the winter. A week from now it is supposed to go down to minus 17 - ugh.
