It's Never Too Late

I was amazed to discover today that two more riders have been posted, and the deck has been shuffled.

Steve Macdonald of New York will now wear medallion No. 36 on his 1928 Henderson Deluxe.

Steve relinquished No. 2 to Eric Dunk, whose 1915 Harley-Davidson wore that medallion as he finished 15th in the 2010 Cannonball.  Eric is also from New York, and will ride a 1929 Harley-Davidson JD in Cannonball II.

Also new to the list of 2012 riders is No. 37, Tom McBride of California.  He will bring a 1929 Harley-Davidson J to the competition.

Finally (maybe), No. 47, Richard Correia, from Massachusetts dropped the 1928 Harley-Davidson JD in favor of a 1925 Henderson Deluxe.

The net changes are: plus two riders, both American, one returning; plus two 1929 motorcycles, one Harley and one Henderson; minus one 1928, but plus one 1925 motorcycle.
