Jeff Alperin had a mishap on the newly rebuilt Beast. He is still optimistic about riding in the Cannonball. Like any motorcycle enthusiast his first concern was his bike.
I hope he makes a full recovery and is able to ride in September as he has spent a lot of time and money getting ready, wishing him all the best.
