We did 70 odd miles in the morning and I gassed up roughly mid way. I decided not to gas up before starting the afternoon section, but after I got going, thought it might be tight getting to the only gas stop at 60ish miles. So, I started out pretty subdued, but as time wore on, I became confident that I would make it to gas and started riding harder. But the very fine mist or occasional spot of rain became real rain for a while. When I stopped for fuel, I put on my gaiters and overmitts and, of course, it didn’t rain again.
After I got fuel (with some to spare), I passed a clump of riders and three of them latched onto me and Robert Ignatowitz on a Sl350 Honda, Nelson Davis on a 200 Bridgestone Hurricane Scrambler and a fellow on a RD 400, jammed at a good pace. I missed a turn and the three of them got by me and I followed them in. 93 miles and change in the afternoon. The Unsprung was very well run, with great roads and a great crew.
