Re: Ibr 2011

I had the opportunity to go and see Ken Meese off at the launch of IBR 2011. wow this was so cool seeing all the bikes, and all the participants, some looked very relaxed while other looked tense and very focused. I arrived around 800am, this allowed me to visit with Ernie and Pauline and get to know some of the riders, also learned more about the whole event. My personel belief, having seen how organized Ken was, I think he will be the new 2011 IBR winner, not mention he has already won three recent rally's this year, he is truly a trained professional. Ernie and Pauline are planning on meeting Ken at the finish down in Ontario, Ca on June 30, I am hoping to join them to welcome Ken on his victory. Good luck Ken!
