Images from the First Stop of the Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run

On Friday I was able to adjust my work schedule to allow for travel to Greenville, NC to meet up with the riders of the Cannonball Run at their first stop.  Arriving at the parking lot of the Hampton Inn around 4:00, I was just in time to see the bikes start rolling in after their first 150 mile run.  It was great to see some of the folks that frequent this site, including Buzz Kanter on his 1915 Harley Davidson.

I had a great time walking around the parking lot and talking to the riders and support team members.  What I found really cool was that even the support vehicles were classic bikes.  There were multiple Panheads and Knuckleheads outfitted with special sidecars that could pick up a broken down race bike and pilot.

Here’s some more pictures I took walking around the parking lot.  As you can see, there were a lot of great bikes.  If you can make it to one of the stops, it is well worth the trip.  Make sure to ask Dave Fusiak to crank up his 8 valve Harley.
