sometimes going to those places you would never go to turn out to be cool. I accidentally found a new and cool route to Colorado because of my GPS, Never try Never know

 My son and I ended up in a very sketchy area because I missed a turn and the GPS put us in harms way. Never again.

See, I can learn something new everyday,LOL 8) It's still a pretty good way to do things. I still like regular old maps. They don't "lose" me like GPS has. Miss one turn and they take you places you would not ever go on your own.  &{

I call it DBP - Document Based Positioning.

I still look at a map to ensure I know an approximate route before relying on a phone, you'd be surprised (maybe not) at how often the GPS route is much less efficient for whatever reason.

The cannonball looks neat - I have ridden most of that route many times on less vintage stuff.

I don't know if I buy that the bikes are worth more dirty since they are all restored at the beginning of the race you aren't buying any originality, but whatever makes the boat float.

I agree with Mac though, the only shiny spots on Fat Bastard are the grips, seat and pegs.

It was one of the buyers who informed me that they leave the dirt and mud on the bikes because these buyers are not going to ride them just display them with the story of the race
CARS SUCK!

Hi Mac -

I completely believe you and your friend, I just don't see that the dirt on a restored bike would add more value, at least for me -

As a display bike, it would be nice, if the bike is already restored, to just have a nice restored bike.

Maybe the dirt provides some feeling that the purchaser did the ride, which seems a little creepy lol.

I have a nice, dirty Concours that is well ridden, and I'll throw in some dirty boots too, if anyone is interested. ;)
