Would like to get a show of hands (ahhh.....fingers??) of who would be interested in entering a "Slow Speed Race" Competition at the V-Strom Gathering East this year?? We started this event in 2012 and had a dozen entries....male/female/a mix of bikes. It was fun, and competitive.....the Overall Winner got a $20 bill and bragging rites as being "The Slowest V-Strom Rider in NC".......
Last year we had half the number of entries......the course was more "challenging"....and the 2012 Winner (NC HillBilly) was not there to defend his "crown". "Turtle" (David) won the Men's Class......"Trooperette", the Ladies Class.......each received an award. We have held the event on Saturday evening starting around 5:30PM, and concluded prior to Supper being served at the Horse around 7PM. With enough entries, we may re-think and hold the event Friday evening......starting around 5PM or so?? (see past Rally Threads for Pics of what we did in 2012/2013)
With 80 or so 'Strommers attending this year, I would think there would be enough testosterone flowing for alittle competition/bragging rites?? Seriously, this is a fun event held in front of the Lodge........with the course only being approximately 60'-75' in length, the times are under a minute, so multiple runs by each competitor are accomplished. Open for all bikes to compete (excluding trikes, and bikes w/training wheels), both genders, and even non-strom Rally attendees. Many folks "think" they can ride a bike FAST........but how good are you riding it SLOW?? If we have enough sign-ups this year, I promise the awards will be worth your while.....
Also: first one to sign-up gets a FREE BEER from me ......to be gulped down 20 minutes prior to the start of the race.
If you would like to enter, please post your board name below........by copying and pasting (not "Quote") just the List only (leave my upper paragraphs off).
