Thanks Alexio

Wow that is a pretty bad average. Hyper guys must be nervous not knowing if this year its going to be their turn.

One barely made it out of the parking lot and the other was on the way to the ECM. Neither were going fast

I will probably be one of the slower ones honestly....atleast until the last day. I don't want to start ECM off with a disaster. I am very familiar with the Dragon, but not much anything past it other than just keeping on 129 headed to Robinsville, NC which is a very easy road to go fast on with long, sweeping curves. I used to always stay @ the Microtel in Robinsville when I didn't want to go home after riding.

Coming from the flatlands I have to spend the first day letting my tilt-o-meter recalibrate. Seriously.

OH! And I'll also be bringing extra 'drawers' if anybody needs any. The Woman got Me a 'party pack' from Target. They're awesome.

Words of wisdom from the old fighter guy. This is supposed to be a good time, not a dick measuring contest. There isn't any prize money or trophies and taking home a broken bike or body is not a happy outcome. Masochists like Calexio may argue (just ribbing there).

You do want to have such a great experience that ECM 2013 maxes out Fontana Lodge. There will be riders of all abilities and risk-taking levels to ride with. Or, just head out by yourself--the roads are some of the best in the world. Remember, there are old pilots and bold pilots but not many old bold pilots. And bring raingear.
