It was a quite night last night in the parking lot in Parker. Well, except for the team that was doing a motor swap. It has been amazing watching these vintage scooter teams. They have done overhauls of almost every piece of the scooter with everyone helping everyone else. They stop and rejet the carb's as much as 5 or 6 times a day depending on elevation. They may not win but they are sure as hell determined to ride across the finish line.
My mindset yesterday, after sweating my way into Parker, was that today would be a nice cool ride into San Diego until someone reminded me that there is still 300 miles of desert to go before we get in to cool part of California.
So, I was off in the dark again this morning following Melanie "Mapsail13", Capt Gary, and Dave in Gary's support truck. It was a nice ride through Joshua Tree National Park and several California state parks, up the mountain to Julian and down the other side to San Diego.
Ashrat was on the first cannonball and 2004 and has vowed to "never do another". Of course she has said that often but keeps coming back. She is a vintage rider and her scooter looks vintage but always finishes with the winners
Dave, Melanie, and Gary suit up.
