Congratulations.....I guess.
I really enjoy this kind of riding. While I sometimes post a little ride report, I do the rides for my own satisfaction. The certificates just go in a drawer in my desk. I wasn't really looking for a pat on the back... just sharing the story and a few pictures.

You bring up a good point. I try to balance my riding by alternating between IBA rides and fun site-seeing rides. I pretty much never ride interstates when I'm not doing Iron Butt rides. I think if all I did was the long distance type of riding I would get burned out on it, and wouldn't enjoy riding as much as I do.

Thanks for the comments.
