End of Stage 9 - Buzz Kanter - 09-20-2010 05:42 AM
Couldn't sleep this morning and just checked the ranking for Stage 9 of the Motorcycle Cannonball yesterday and there are still 12 of us holding perfect scores with 1833 miles covered. I am ranked #8 still.
Before getting back on the road today I have to write my monthly column for American Iron Magazine and have so many things to say and share I simply can't sleep this monring regardless of how exhausted I am from the ride so far.
We are more than half way across now and the riders are getting more and more tired with every passing day. In contrast the machines seem to be running better as the riders and mechanics are tine tuning them over the many miles.
Today is a long hot 293 mile ride from Lawton, OK to Clovis, NM.
Yesterday Cris Somme-Simmons blew out a rear tire but she is back on the road and ready for today. Two days ago Frank Westfall rode his stunning Henderson Four off the road. Minor damage to bike and rider and he is back on the road. My new pal JIm Petty is having a tough time with his beautiful Indian twin blowing out parts and searching all over the country for replacements to overnight and try to get back in the ride.
So much to do for us all. Wish us luck and hope to see more friends - old and new - along the ride.
