Just completed my second IronButt 1000 miler with relative ease. I do some longer practice rides for the fun of riding in the early summer...usually 600 mile days to get used to the time in the saddle.
I the IronButt stuff for the shear pleasure of riding and seeing so many different places in a short time. Eating well and resting during ride is important and everyone is different.
I really do enjoy riding and with the addition of this last IronButt, I completed my holiday in Utah and back to Edmonton in 9 days with 6,300km on the meter..
