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?

Ride Safe -Bill

that rule is for the Ironbutt Rally, not individual rides that you can do anytime, they also state on the IBA website that rides of more than 1800 miles in less than 24 hrs will NOT be published

Well actually how it works is on IBA documented rides is that a rider must get a gas receipt at least every 300 miles and
that gas tankage is not restricted.

Quotes from IBA website

Receipts

WARNING: If your motorcycle is equipped with a large fuel-tank, please note that you must stop at least once every 300 miles for gas (this is purely for documentation for your ride). Although we know it is possible to ride greater distances non-stop, we will not accept a claim of this type.

1800+ miles

Riding distances over 1800 miles are shown as 1800 + miles

STEP ONE, Choose a route

Your ride needs to be completely documented (steps outlined below) and cover a minimum distance of 1,500 miles in 24 hours or less. In order to keep these rides from becoming a race, mileages in excess of 1,800 miles in less than 24 hours will be published as 1,800+ on the Iron Butt Association web site.

End of website quoteso

What piqued my curiosity on this ride was that I could not find an 1800+ BBG completed by a rider on an FZ-1 listed on the IBA completed ride list

IBA Website has conflicting info on the SS1k page I referred to and the BBG page you refered to

STEP ONE, Choose a SAFE route

Your ride needs to be completely documented (steps outlined below) and cover a minimum distance of 1,000 miles in 24 hours or less (SaddleSore 1000), or 1,500 miles in 36 hours or less (Bun Burner). In order to keep these rides from becoming a race, mileages in excess of 1,800 miles in less than 24 hours will not be published.

The answer is critical to me as I'm in the of planning a cert. ride right now.

you need to save ALL your receipts

I believe the rule is maximum distance between stops is 350 miles, don't need to worry about that much unless you got a huge tank or get exceptional fuel economy

just stop for gas where you need it and keep your receipts, if you have any "corners" in your ride make a stop and get a receipt

The pages for both SS1K / BB1500 and BBG say 300 miles... but I'd suggest double-checking for the ride(s) you're planning.

We realize the need to clean up the Web site a bit. Sorry about that.

You need to submit sufficient documentation to demonstrate you rode the ride you claim. In addition to any other documentation points your route requires, you need to obtain a receipt at least every 350 miles.

I see that your correct, the 350 number is what I recall hearing on the IBA forum, Maybe it's somewhat flexible, go to the SS1600kilometers page and you see the distance is 600km or 372 miles


edit, I see that Ira posted while I was typing, he's the real answer man

Mileage is not necessarily the "longest" day. I've ridden 1200-1500 miles several times. It was tiring but nowhere near the effort that I had when I blindly followed my GPS to NF Road 150 in the Gila NF (New Mexico).

39 miles of badly washboarded road and creekbed on a fully loaded C14. It was, by far, the hardest day of riding I've had in over 300,000 miles of riding. I even splurged on a hotel in Silver City to "celebrate".







I was glad to be finished.



Yet, it pales in comparison to some of the rides of other ADV'rs.

30.00 miles approximately in Stroudsburg and DWG Pa. one afternoon, partially from getting lost from 7th st. bridge closure and new rt. 209 interchange. Actually, I knew where I was (on my dr650), but someone put everything else in the wrong place.

I've done a couple days in the 900 range. No particular reason other than I had the time. Not really enjoyable as it was alot of pavement.
