Future Ride Plans
« on: November 12, 2013, 09:42:13 AM »
No Iron Butt love yet?


Do you have any plans for an upcoming IBA ride?  If I attend the R4 STO BBQ this year I may turn it into an IBA ride of some sort.

If I attend Clay's I'll probably do one up and one back.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

You better be there or do i need to come down there.  Wait a minute that doesn't sound like a bad idea.

I haven't done one in a couple years, so it's probably time.

None whatsoever.  My consistent failing is not taking more time on my rides to just sniff the flowers.

I dashed 1050 in 17 hours on Sunday.  Not sure why.  Well, actually it was to go to a place Alton Brown reviewed, Jack's Cosmic Dogs in Charleston, South Carolina.  I used Mick's Hillbilly Hydration System again, and it worked wonderfully.

Next years plans for me:

Team Lyle Silver State Round-Up in May: http://www.teamlyle-alamoexpress.com/2014/
Going to try to beat my personal 24hr record from last years event.

Cognoscenti Rally in June, Ely Nevada

July, I'm running a rally here in CO, will post up details on that soon. Just making the final lodging/banquet plans for the event.

August, the Iron Butt National will be back here in Denver. Only 6 miles away.

After that, who knows :)

Since my youngest son just finished his move to Ft. Myers, FL, I may reconsider an attempt at a BB1500 this summer to visit him in early May when college lets out.

The most I ever did straight was like 450 or so.  I'd like to try one someday.

man, that is exactly my problem as well.

Every trip begins with a commitment to slow down and look at everything.
Every trip ends with something like a non-stop run from Edmonton to Vancouver.

I've done 1K days, just never on purpose or with paperwork.

I should likely do this, and on '14.
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

I actually found the paperwork to be the most difficult part.  It also made me stop more than I needed to to be able to properly document the route.

I can't see how.... The route should be planned and made simple long before you turn the key to the on postion.  Someone to sign to start or a gas receipt , gas receipt when you stop for gas and someone to sign at the end or another gas receipt.   easy peasy :)

 That route was not a straight line for me. All was done in Ontario. Started in London with gas receipt (that started the clock) Next stop was just outside Toronto (gas receipt)  Turn left and head to North Bay (gas receipt)  Right turn in North Bay and head to just passed Ottawa (gas receipt). Turn right and head due south until the 401.  Right turn and take the 401 right back to London. Gas receipt stopped the clock.

Of course to make it really easy these guys/gals run  different Iron Butt rides around. The only one I see so far this year is the 50CC OR 100CCC

It's still early in the planning stages for the MTF 2014 rides.  There will be plenty more options, like the Moonshine SS1000 or the Denver IBA ride in.

You could also come out and play with us :)

P.S. - let me know if you're coming to the Denver meet, I'll buy you a beer or 6.  :thumbsup:

Not me.  Short leash this year with at least one more semester of college.  I'll be out your way in September, but it'll be to start the two week dirt bike tour in Rawlins, WY.  Everything else for 2014 will be "local" riding.

I bet the last time was when you loaned me your truck when my bike was sitting at a dealer in Grand Rapids waiting for parts.

A couple of us are doing a few of them this year, just to get used to LD riding again.
