I competed in the Marble City Mayhem Uphill Speed Challenge Saturday. It's about an eighth mile, uphill on city streets. Top speed (radar by local PD) per class wins. I did it last year on my FJ-09.

Rain was forecast so I took my truck and my dual sport. I didn't want to get stuck riding my street bike home in the rain. I figured I would run the speed challenge on my bike. I knew it couldn't compete with the sport bikes so I just did it for fun. I thought that while I was there, I would run my truck just to see what it would do. Then after my runs, I would go riding up in the Oklahoma hills.

I rode my bike in the streetbike class and my truck in the non-modified, small engine class. Small engine is anything under eight cylinders. Mine is a V6.

I did my runs which were disappointing to me, watched a few other runs - they actually had a few full on drag racers there, then I went riding. When I got back from riding, they were finished and were taking everything down. I was the last vehicle in the pit area. Just as I put my bike in the truck, a lady walked up and asked if I got my trophy. I said that I didn't know I got one. She said, "Yeah, you won in your truck."

They told me I should've entered my bike in the "Other" class since it is basically a plated dirt bike. The other class was won by a Razr. I beat it by seven mph so I would've had a double win.

There is a huge marble quarry near the town, hence the name Marble City. The trophy is a solid marble slab with a plaque. It probably weighs eight pounds. They said the quarry cut and donated the pieces. I thought it was cool.

Here's some more pics from the day:

I've crossed this before but this time it was too deep and too swift.

It's not the fall that hurts, it's when you hit the ground.
