    Good luck and be safe. Seems like as a cultural we're getting very stressed and short tempered. Road rage incidents have been on the increase.

    If anyone would care to share what bike mods and kit they are running for the Iron butt I'm all ears.

    I was at the start and saw one blue TTSE in the parking lot - I missed the second.

    Not to knock the TTSE or any other make / model but the custom made bike with the deisel engine was pretty cool.  I talked to the owner / rider and he said he had about 1,000 miles on the bike and it was reliable.  With the altered custom gearing it wioll do 88 mp.  And it gets over 70 mpg.  With his aux tank it will go a long way between fill-ups.

     After the first leg the standings/placings are James Epley [tdragger] is in 29th. place and the other Trophy rider Troy Martin is in 67th. place. The second leg has started  :028: :028:

    Bummer :    Just heard on the IBA Forum that Troy has a flat rear tire on I-10 East in LA at the La Brea exit.  Hopefully a Trophy owner will loan him a rear wheel & tire or at least he can get a new rear tire quickly.
