Did you submit that ride to the IBA for certification? I couldn't fin an FZ-1 doing a BBG of 1835 miles on the IBA rides adnn rules site

What ride certificate were you awarded ?

When I calculated your route on the map I got 1746 miles not 1835 miles did you ride a non direct route for some special reason?

The IBA rules for fuel tankage is no more than 11.5 gallons in total so why did you run a 10.5 gallon fuel cell, since your total fuel capacity would be 5.6 gallons plus the 10.5 gallon cell, for a total capacity of 16.1 gallons

Your overall average speed at 1835 miles would be 77.8091 mph, considering you would have to make at least 5 fuel stops at 12 minutes each your riding time would be reduced to 22:35 and your moving average speed would increase to 81.2546 mph.

Can you share with us your trip report for this a ride?
