Three R3’s. Whoah it’s going to be tight. That would be a great picture though.
And I was just up in North Ga riding the 6v Lighting Rocket on it’s newly rightsized Heidenaus.
It corners so well.

Well crap! I missed last year and had my heart set on bringing my T160 again this year to ride near Sempers R-3.
Unfortunately i waited to long for a much needed shoulder surgery and have been told to stay off bikes for at least another 6 months. While moving my T160 around in the garage was confirmation enough that I won't be able to ride for several more months!
THIS SUCKS!!!!

You don't have to ride, you know, that was taken out of the Bylaws some years ago ... !!!

Just being there is perfectly acceptable!

I hope to make the ride this year.
With any luck I'll have the T120v on the trailer. If not, I'll ride the Beemer there.

That's what they all think until you downshift and open the triple up. Shift into fifth at the ton. Those rice riders usually give up at a little over 100mph. Just my experience.

All right you guys, all this puffing up and squaring off and stiff-legging around is gonna give someone the idea that maybe he might have to exceed North Carolina speed limits, and you KNOW we wouldn't want that .... !! whistle
