    I love the early morning runs during the event. Well worth getting up and out by 7-8 am. At that time, "Why yes, I do own the road."

    From 8am-5pm the mentality of the doucharley riders is that they own it.

    usually I don't see the asshat cruisers until 10 am. Mostly its people who knowingly break the speed limits out there early

    We got lucky that weekend. The Dragon had a mudslide on the west TN side but was still open from the east.
    That's the edited 2 min version the full version is on my youtube.

    Me too. I meant to go last year, but I didn't have much energy. I tried to stay up for the night runs. I should be back to normal by this year. Early and night runs, maybe sleep during the day.

    I'm just not a morning person, never was.

    Glad to see you'll be around for the night runs, we need some I6 music blaring off the trees. If I have the WRX it will be quiet this year, oh well.

    I love Mike's Si. It's a nasty beast. In addition to that...it's the only Si I've personally seen that belches as much (if not more) black smoke from the exhaust as mine. :rotfl:
