SOW may want to tag along and bring his toasted cat for lunch in Omaha.
Go for it! While not considering an 'iron butt' myself, I am looking at riding from N. AL to the top of Pikes Peak & back. Just b/c :smile-new: ...
So you sit on your pussy when you ride?
Enjoy your journey, Zoober. Be safe.
Once I get the cruise working and am comfortable with it, I'm going to try it.
Put some tune on and enjoy the ride, when your butt hurt stop, drink some fluids and energy bar stretch and ride ......Repeat :thumb:
I ran over a pilskin or Bad Billy today. A poor Gardiner snake-didn't see him because of the black pavement. I second thought pilskin or bad billy are too bad to be a good snake like the gardiner snake-they only eat bugs, where as pilskin or bad billy doesn't do anything usefull.:whip:
We may not but no one can say our tastes are not sophisticated.
Last August; I ran from Calgary south through to "Run for the Sun", west and north to Spokane, north through to Nelson in one day. I think just over 1300k in a little over 15 hours of riding. I only stop for gas and food. In it for the ride.
My longest ride thus far was my trip from southern California to Nashville. I made it in four days averaging over 500 miles a day, stock set up, I would have liked different bars and lower pegs. A Sargent seat would have helped too, but I'd do it again!
I am thinking aboot proposing an Ironbutt type event that features riding to every WalMart store in a given state and then a Grand National, riding to every WalMart store in the US.
An odd adaptation to the old Pub Hopping activity.
Harleydood leather bars too?
Most I've done in one day was 1300km, them 2 1000km days and once you settle in the time flys. To stay dehydrated I store a camel back in a saddle bag so while riding you are able to have a drink it is very easy to dehydrate I was drinking 3liters of water a day and only had a few rest stops. Invest in a air hawk seat custom great addition for long hauls. Good luck and have fun.
Wow nice necrobump to a thread from last summer. Curious how it went for the OP...
I'm thinking about doing this one this summer: http://www.ironbutt.com/ridecerts/getdocument.cfm?DocID=25
