I said i'd post a few pics from my recent trip. Two Vincents in the van from here to Winnipeg, and then two days down to Cannon Falls south of Minneapolis, there for 3 days then two days back. Put them in the back in the van and head home. 4516 Km on the Van and 1550 miles on the bike.
That is a corner ahead, better get ready. That's MPH by the way
Northern MN is pretty flat.
Whoops - A nice chat with the MN Sate Patrol.
Nice view of Old man river (Mississippi) up a very neat twisty road, but very short.
And of course a sleazy Tavern. The bike second from the left is a brand new made in France 1330 cc Godet Egli Twin (http://www.godet-motorcycles.com/) that belongs to a friend of mine from Bismark ND. What a rocketship. Not quite up to RC 51 stuff but a very impressive bike. I rode it for about 30 miles or so, and found a few corners.

Very cool trip, which bike did Smith bring?
The Godet story is also very cool, how many have been made?
Smith Trucked to Bismarck and rode the New "A" from there - about 600 miles. Ate a pushrod about 100 miles from cannon falls and spent a few hours doing provincial repairs. The pushrods have adjusters in the middle of them and it got Wrecked, so he ended up brazing it solid and brazing the worn end, went in with about ..040 - .050 clear (should be zero) so rattled somewhat. All back up and running tho' he was out on it yesterday.
Godet has built quite a few of these things (maybe 100) - they are very pricey!!
