Iron Butt Ride

I am Back.810.6 miles and 16.709 gallons of Fuel later in a Little over 24 hrs.Is that a Iron Butt ride? I kept my Vista Cruise on 82+ on the GPS and still got 48.5 mpg if my Math is correct.I am suprisingly not sore at all but I almost had to take the FF Brain Bucket off as it was 100+ coming off the Brand new asphalt for the last 100 miles.

Missed it by this much.........Official Iron Butt is 1000 miles in less than 24 hours.
Still that's a lot of traveling.

As soon as you become accustom to anything, some moron has to change it.

I wanted to do cannonball run put on by a local dealership last weekend. If you finished in the 24 hrs you got the saddlesore patch from the iron butt association. I was getting new rubber put on the bike. Next year though it's on. I'll do.

Take a bump and get rolling. Like the old timers hahaha. Not really.

The funny part was I got great gas mileage in the dark as I didnt have it twisted as hard as when I could see.Once it got Light it was twisted Hard.When I left Sc Friday @ 4am it was 71 degrees also and when I left FL @ 5am it was 88 to start the day.Got Home to SC and it was 105 air temp.
