How about something on the west coast?
If I knew of any I'd share that information too... I can't pass along information that I don't have.
Im just jealous.
Riding Heaven's Highwayson the grand tour
That makes two of us dvs....hard for me to understand why we don't see some events like this particularly along the central/southern portion of the left coast..
TG: Thanks for the report. A small nit: In the Da Vinci section, it says this: "
It was clear that Brian and Co-Motion's other Co-Owner, Todd Shusterman, have established.."
Shouldn't this read "Da Vinci" instead of Co-Motion?
Anyway, I still don't feel like we have heard your opinion on the Topolino wheels yet.
I wonder if I can get Mel to let me test some at ETR 2008. The stoker would choke if she knew the price, but a ride might convince her. Thanks for the links; I hadn't read the R&T article.
