Deal's Gap 3rd annual 2 stroke meet -- 5/24-5/26

A fun time was had by all.  Everyone was great and we did a lot of riding.  There were a few mechanical problems with some of the bikes, but it didn't seem to spoil anyone's good time.  1 broken clutch that was made functional, 1 broken clutch cable, 1 set of blown fork seals (My H1), 1 low speed drop that did little damage to the bike or rider, 1 oil line leak that was fixed, and 1 seizure.

Here are some of the pictures that I took.  Videos will be up shortly.

The video had to be broken up into 4 parts for size requrements.  The first stop was to let the other riders catch up, the second stop was because I heard a noise in my bike (you can hear it towards the end of the 3rd clip...loud metallic clanging)  I couldn't find anything wrong and nothing fell off, so I continued on my way.  This clip was made on my 3rd pass and my very first time through the Gap while I was not following someone, so I was a bit slow.  The video quality is marginal in places.  My $20.00 eBay camcorder was not really up to the task.  I don't know if the vibration caused the problems or the bike's  ignition interfered with the electronics, but the video is shaky in places and went to blue screen in a few others.  Let it play and you'll see it all.

The motorcycle that was used to make this video is a 1972 Kawasaki H2 with a Tracy body.  The motor is stock with a set of expansion chambers made by Tom Loftis of Knoxville, TN.  The camcorder is an old Hitachi 8mm (that has obviously seen better days) that I attached to the H2 in place of the speedometer (that is where it fit)

Unfortunately, the little AR80 developed motor trouble and couldn't tame the Dragon.

More 2 strokes actually on the road at one time than most people at the Gap had ever seen before :)

 A whole lot of 2 strokes all in one place :)
