For a co-driver I enlisted one of my oldest friends, Jon, who hopped onto his Ninja and rode 600 miles over two days just to go Gambling with me. Poor guy even crashed his bike when he hit a goddamn sinkhole in the middle of West Virginia (thankfully at low speeds, but it still required a stop at a bike shop before he could continue).
This video pretty much sums up the level of intelligence we brought to the Gambler. MotoIQ D-Team, absolutely on their game! In this case, the D stands for Delaware since that’s where both Jon and I originally hail from.
The rally was held on the weekend of April 28th and 29th. We arrived in Troy, MI the Friday before, partly to ensure we made it, partly because the rally would start bright and early on Saturday and it’s a 350 mile drive to Detroit for us. We convened on Saturday morning and the poor residents of Troy had no idea what they were in for.
