The countdown takes on more significance as we move inside 100 days until the official start of the cannonball in Atlantic City, NJ. On the Motorcycle Cannonball FaceBook page, Scott Byrd publishes an amusing quip daily. He correlates the remaining day’s number to the rider number along with humorous diatribe…but each rider looks forward to his/her moment of fame with no malice (or at least not much). 🙂 Thankfully, day 103 has come and gone with my lashing fading fast in the rear view mirror.
Preparations and tuning continue on The Douglas. as time becomes a precious commodity. Seemingly some days feel like 3 steps backwards as potential problem areas are identified and rectified in advance of the grueling endurance run. Pictured are the front forks and handlebars removed this week in order to fit replacement steering bearings into the frame/fork assembly.
