I recently got back from my annual pilgrimage to Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wi. and Grattan, Mi. with a stay with friends in Chicago in between. While my Moto Guzzi Dondolino had broken at Loudon in May, the parts to fix it arrived just before I left for Rd. Am., so I threw it in the van with my 350 H-D Sprint. I wasn't actually planning to race the Dondo at Rd. Am. as Keith Martin at Big D Cycles had asked me if I'd like to ride his Class C Triumph there. Of course I would, as the bike had been impressively fast last year in the hands of Ryan Ambrose. Ryan is pursuing a modern bike championship on a 675 Triumph in the CRMA this year, so the Class C bike was available. The Triumph is a pre-unit 500 with telescopic forks and rigid rear end from 1951.
