Additional Sponsor and Publicty Recognition
Another bit of good news: one of the leaders in lubrication for vintage British motorcycles, Morris Lubricants, has offered give us a deep discount on the oil supply for all three teams operating from our rig. My friend and fellow competitor Buzz Kanter, editor-in-chief of American Iron Magazine, has been fortunate enough to be sponsored by Amsoil, which is known for its high quality synthetic lubricants. Synthetics should work just fine in his vintage Harley JDH, but for our teams running motors from the old empire, Morris Golden Film motor oil is the right choice. Fellow Ohio Valley BSA member Robert Bauer, Owner of Classic Oil Supply in Richmond, Virgina graciously forwarded our information to the home office in the UK, where the company agreed to sponsor us with a great discount. Wonderful news, as the lads from the Roaring Rudges have come up with a quantity requirement of about 20 gallons of SAE 40 oil for all three teams--and Morris Golden Film oil is everything but cheap.
I'd also like to take the opportunity to thank the local community for the continued support. Recently, Willie Openshaw, publisher of the local website: "Polk County Today" wrote a nice article about our team. Since publishing it's gotten some great attention, and I've had quite a few comments about it. So, Willie, if you're reading this--Thanks again for your assistance in publicizing the Cannonball.
