#40

It was raining buckets when as we sat in the Elks Lodge in Parsons, Kansas and the rain delay gave us a welcomed break in the schedule and time enough to sit and visit with the local folks who'd come out to see us. A very enthusiastic lady came and sat with the table full of support crew as we laughingly wrung out our soggy duds. Paula told us that she'd been reading everything she could about the Cannonball, studying the rules on line and watching the scores of the riders, but she was curious and had a bunch of questions to ask so we had fun sharing what we knew.

Cannonball Store!
Written by Alleydude   

Some people seem to be having trouble following the banners at the top of the page for the Cannonball Store, so Jason asked me to put this post here to direct you on how to get to the store. Short of clicking on the banners at the top of every page, now, for your convenience, you can click on the picture above, OR follow this link:

www.cannonballstore.com/

Please keep in mind that orders placed during the Cannonball will not be filled until after the completion of the run.

 
Day of Rest

We've crossed the half-way point, geographically, and today is the only day of rest for the Motorcycle Cannonball. A term that is actually a misnomer. There will be no rest for anyone today, but there was no starting line, no sigh-in, no pre-dawn alarms to warn us that the race has begun again.

Stage 8 On to Dodge City

Saturday treated 67 riders to a beautiful a day of sunshine, reasonable temps and an eagerness to get to Dodge City to dust off the accumulated road grime and enjoy a day off. Sunday will be the only day off during the entire run. In 8 days the migrating herd of antique iron has traveled 1,724 miles across 8 states in various stages of repair. A total of 22 riders have perfect scores as 16 of the Motorcycle Cannonball's competitors were assigned to the "Did Not Start" list.

Bikes 18 and 45 have been moved to the Tour Class. In this class they must still abide by the event rules but will not be penalized for late arrival at a checkpoint. They also are not part of the competition and will not receive an Event Score.

Bike 45 also had the penalty for support crew on the course removed. That was my fault as he had permission to be followed by his support for medical reasons.

Stage 7 Wild and Wet

We've been wet for three days. Giggling to myself as Longfellow's words of "Into every life a little rain must fall" echoed through my mind, I nestled down into my rain gear as booming claps of thunder and flashing bolts of lightening crackled though gray sky on Friday as we made our way from Missouri into Parsons, Kansas for lunch. As we rolled into the quaint little community we were already soaked to the bone and before we saddled up to head out in soggy seats, Jason Sims had decided to call it a day.
