So, 2016 was a bit of a mess for the blog, and entries jumped around a bit. If you're reading from start to finish or simply want to catch up, here's my collection of events as they happened chronologically.

On February 29th, I decided to keep riding west to San Diego, CA.

Still going.

I visited my friend in San Diego and met the great guys at Vespa Motorsport. On the way north, I met another long distance GTS rider extraordinaire, Karen.

Eventually, I wound my way back to San Francisco, where I picked up work PDI-ing bikes in the transition of Vespa to their new location at Scuderia West. Read all about it here:

PX200 survived my maiden voyage to Norcross, GA. April 3, 2016.

That's when things went quiet, because I was hit by a lousy Atlanta driver. Subsequently, the latter half of those plans were scrapped, and I flew to Fred's to recover. You can read about it in my year end summary:

Here's Looking At You, 2016

Once healed up enough to ride, I did manage a few shenanigans. Some highlights below that didn't make it into the summary:
