    1. What’s the red thing on the fork leg of Cory’s bike?
    2. Where do I get an “Unapproachable Norton” shirt like Teresa’s?
    3. Where did PZ get his T shirt? (I need to know so I don’t go anywhere near there)
    4. What’s Pd’O riding – JR’s 500 cammy?
    5. Shouldn’t the George and Satchi photo caption end with “…in the world.”?
    6. Where was Dai Gibbison hiding when these pics were taken?

    Great shots.

      Hello JJ. We missed on the rally. Maybe next year.
      Cory had a video camera. It can be mounted in any orientation, then the image can be clocked to be upright.

      Teresa bought her shirt at some random gift shop in the middle of Oregon, on the way to the rally. no details. sorry.

      PdO was riding JR’s 500cc KSS. Great bike, everybody should have one.
      Agreed on George and Satchie!
      Dai was there, with Judith and Uncle Brian. I didn’t get any good photos though. dammit.
