I have read this whole thread this afternoon.

That is a kewl bike and I wish you luck on the salt Lars.   cheers

I signed up just so I could reply to this thread. Cheesy

I will attend speed week one of these years.  And maybe someday build a car to get me over 200mph, I know I would not be in "the" 200MPH club, but would still personally know I went 200MPH.

Thanks all for your kind words !

I'm afraid there's a few posts I haven't responded to.
Don't want to be rude , so please accept my apology
for not getting back to you, as I'm VERY short on time
making preparations here.

With invaluable help from a bunch of friends who, the last few days,
generously donated time and effort, the bike was send off yesterday.
If you read this: 1000 tak drenge for jeres fantastiske hjælp.
Tak Moen, Mads, Jakob Ole, Kasper, Allan, Abel, Jakob Bonfils, Peter !!!

...and a BIG thanks to this brilliant forum:
Jon who makes it all possible and all the members here how have
helped, encouraged , provided info and generally been great !

Without you this would never have happened !


...


Even the crating became a 'project' in itself.
Needed to be within certain measurement , needed to be as light as possible
and needed to be forklift maneuverable from both sides.
The local Harley Davidson dealership donated a gigantic motorcycle transport-pallet
that we cut down to size and the partly dismantled bike mounted on it



and an aluminum box was build on top of it.

Thanks guys !

Bones : is that a thing made of wood
that the bike is on ?

I was told that you can not enter USA with wood as part of the packaging
unless it's heat-treated to some VERY strict specifications ( seriously ).

Click this International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15)
Don't see the USA on the list and it seams that plywood is OK
 but that's not what the shipping company's USA folks said so........



I'll keep an eye out for a very cool Vincent

My leathers are for the 175 pounds -- but about 6'4" tall.  Nonetheless -- we're not racing this week, so if you haven't found another set -- find me and we'll see how they fit you.  Size 14 boots -- large/extra large gloves.  Our trailer is right near the end of the pits close by registration.  Look for the Seldom Seen Slim logos on it.

Hello,
I have a set of leathers that fit me when I was 165 lbs and 5'10". They are a one piece suit in race shape. I would give them to your cause if they are something you desire.

Thanks and
