better check the rulebook on taking your feet off the pedals....

Motorcycles are required to have only ONE set of pegs/pedals and your feet have to remain on them during the run......safety issue

Good luck with all this,,,,,, all motorcycles evolved from motorized bikes,,,

Well, that settles that. Personally, I'm relieved we can't do it. Thank you, Smitty, and an extra thanks for your historical observation.

Our Honorary Sponsor is The George A. Wyman Memorial Project, and we are running to raise awareness for this great cause.

Our rider, Jimmy, models the latest in Wyman bling...the dartboard's regulation size & height, so you can tell he's not exactly aerodynamically correct for this mission.

The bicycle is running 130 course at WoS. Therefore there is no class rules and no recognized record as we know it.

Motorcycle rules do NOT apply.

Actually, DW, they sort of do...the safety-related ones, at least. Our rider has to have approved motorcycle gear, the bike has to have positive cutout for electric motor and gas engine. I even offered to install a lanyard, but was told we could do without. We have to pass tech for common sense construction, etc...so, I am totally ok with "feet stay on pedals" as fair enough to be able to participate.

When I was working things out with Dan Wright, before approval in 2008, he said "The salt hurts no matter what you fall off of."
