my first SS1000 started in NH and ended in Columbia, SC, from there I headed out to northern Georgia to explore

I did mine in June when days are longest, started @ 1am, all my night riding was in begining of ride when I was fresh and on roads close to home that I was familiar with, I rolled into Columbia just as it was getting dark @ 8pm

I did a lot of planning, but it wasn't really necessary for the SS1000, you can make extra stops.


BBG is a different story, 1500 miles in 24, you can't lallygag at fuel stops and you have to consistently make pace
