Help, I'm online and can't get off!

I'll be posting my Ride Report once I get things organized in how I want to approach it Smile


Edit: Chris on the 'busa took the reverse direction on the loop and didn't compete for the IronButt certificate. He was first back total. I returned 4th but was first back on the normal direction (17:45). I averaged around 60mph.
