Today Dad told Justin and I that he would build a 2nd 1916 Power Plus if we wanted to ride with him on the 2016 Cannonball. The deal is that Justin and I will alternate days and ride / share the same bike. Since we will not be maintaining the same rider for the entire run we will not be competitive, but we will still get to experience this amazing adventure with our Dad and Granddad. We said “Yes” of course!!
All the way home from the 2014 Cannonball, the talk in the truck was ALL about the next bike to be built for the 2016 Cannonball. What would the cut-off year be? What would the route be? The rumor was that Lonnie was going to make it a “Century Ride.” How cool would that be since we had recently purchased a 1916 Power Plus merely months before in anticipation of the next Cannonball. As luck would have it, the Gods of Speed smiled upon us. And now the journey begins…..
