    Re: Iron Butt


    this trip is not about the mileage. its about just getting down to FL to help my mother out. The IBA is just a bonus added. whatever i do for mileage is whatever i do for mileage. I have no target.

    Re: Iron Butt

    the IBA rides ARE about mileage, are you saying now you're not interested in doing a SS1k or BB1.5k anymore

    Re: Iron Butt

    This trip is to assist my mother is going to produce >1k guaranteed OR a 1.5K possibility based on my route choice. my time frame to do either is to target < 24 hours. If i qualify during this trip for any IBA I'll apply. I'm not doing this mileage just to do the mileage specifically for the IBA there is a much bigger purpose/ priority for this trip.

    22 hours 1420 GPS miles. I had an extra stop for 1 hour. met one of my goals- average moving speed 70 mph. thankfully i was not in the 95 north bound side that was backed up for over 10 miles. That mush have taken hours to clear up. Now to come back home. never sleepy the entire time. 1/2 of the trip was rain to torrential rain.

    was hoping the tire would make the trip back. To ensure i make it back safely I chucked on a new tire, did an oil and gear oil change.

    heated gear in the 55 temps helped to keep the body from expelling any energy keeping warm! but F-me 70-87 degree temps is brutal! i kept on pulling layers after layers off. eventually i was just in a mesh jacket not shirt loving the downpours keeping me cool.

    Haverhill Ma to Orange Park Fl 1206 miles 20.5 hours on an 08 Concours. Itís tiring, the license plate frame isnít worth a crash. Itís a great ride, worth doing it! Iíd plan more on hydration and food than gas, thereís no shortage of fuel stops. Avoiding traffic is huge! Timing and the right route. Past my bed time now but Iíd be happy to give you my 2 cents tomorrow!
    Oh, and you wonít want to get on and head back North for a few days! That said, when you do itís a 1500 opportunity.

    nutrition if you call it that....had my camelback in the tank bag with Smart Water (electrolyte water). + had a GU packet, Cliff gummy blocks (3 pieces) and a couple of granola bars.

    I'd recommend a rotisserie chicken and fettuccine Alfredo paired with a nice malbec. JUST so you know you'll fall asleep once you arrive.

    2 beers =DONE! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz

    made it back. another 22 hours 1300+ish from my sisters. I got jammed up in the worst part of 95. Washington. It would have been a 20 hour trip.


    now for the hard part. Documentation submission.
