2003 Lake O' the Pines
"Honoring Ed Mabry - "Racer"
Bruce Davidson - Rally Chairman
<Bike Show Results> <This Year's Heroes> <Rally Photo Gallery>
The NTNOA's 19th Rally was a success because of the hard work and dedication of many of its members. Our list of heroes below is only the start of a very long list of unselfish individuals who donated their time and effort in making this Rally one of the best ever. A special thanks goes to our Rallye Chairman - Bruce Davidson who accepted the challenge again this year and again worked his butt off (figuratively speaking). Thanks again Bruce!
This Rally was significant for a couple of
reasons. First, we invited the Tejas Chapter of the Antique
Motorcycle Club of America to attend and share in the festivities. To
accommodate the Tejas Chapter we added two classes to the Bike Show which proved
to be woefully inadequate. The Tejas Chapter's participation was
overwhelming and added substantially to the quality of the Bike Show.
Hopefully they will be back next year.
Ed is the owner/builder of No. 601.
He is a retired Bell Helicopter engineer, a long time race car and race bike
builder and a great supporter of the NTNOA. No. 601 runs two turbocharged,
fuel burning, "old" Triumph Trident push-rod, 2-valve engines. They make ~450
horsepower and the partially streamlined bike weighs 1,000 lbs. This bike
is also the fastest open-wheel motorcycle in the world and in history. It holds
various class records as high as 238MPH and has exceeded 260MPH.
A recent trend over the last couple of years is for Rally enthusiasts to show up
early, stay late and enjoy the beautiful scenery, camaraderie and roads around
the lake. This year we also had more motor homes show up than ever before
- we must be getting older.
