And then there was one!  Class I motorcycles take a hit again on fifth Stage of the Motorcycle Cannonball as leader #199 Todd Cameron competing on the events oldest motorcycle, a 1909 Indian, suffered a heartbreaking bottom end failure on the single cylinder motor.  Just coming off a back-to-back Cross Country Chase victory, which is another event put on by the Motorcycle Cannonball, Cameron was favored to dominate the leader board. This leaves #64 Dave Currier the sole Class I rider that has maintained a perfect score putting him in the top position with his 1911 Harley-Davidson Single Cylinder.  This also moves a few more Class II bikes up in the standings. When the day started, we had 53 riders with perfect miles, completing Stage 5 we now have 49 bikes that can still claim that.  Other than lots of movement on the scoreboard, the Cannonball took one of the most scenic routes on the trip skirting along the Blue Ridge Parkway between last night’s stop and tonight’s Hosted Stop at Thunder Road Harley-Davidson in Danville, VA who greeted us with a Taco Tuesday feast.  Back in the parking lot of the hotels the riders prepping their machines are still chatting about the twisty turnies of today’s route and are anticipating what kind of two-lane magic we will show them next!!
