I agree with you Ed, especially around here. This is the same bike out in the NW corner. I believe the bike is owned by a very attractive racer.




Just thought the pics would be fun!

Haha I don't want to ruin any fun. I think I am getting grumpy from lack of riding. All work and no play lately.

Myself and and friend did a Saddle Sore ride Saturday. It started out in N Hampton Ma. at 6:08am( our minute) went up to Swanton Vt.(reciept) then over to Bangor Me(reciept). From there we went south to the Hope Valley area in RI.(reciept) Continueing to MIlford Ct. to get the last reciept, We then headed north on rt 91 back to N hampton Ma. Arriving at 03:32 am. We covered 1072 miles in 21 hours 24 minutes which met the criteria to get our certificate to be Iron Butt members.
The ride was not nearly as hard as I thought it would be and we're both considering getting true rally bikes to start doing some of these rallies.

Well congratulations. I'd be interested in hearing what your strategies were for staying alert that long. I'd probably have a camel back filled with a mixture of black coffee and Red Bull. How's the butt?

We stopped drinking coffee 3 days prior to the ride and neither one of us drank any redbull. I've had great luck with the 5hour energy stuff so we both had one late in the day and early evening. We both carried trail mix in our tankbags and would eat that one the fly all day. Also we had enough water bottles to survive the Sahara. We drank those on the fly too. We had a sandwich up in Bangor and I ate and apple and snickers bar in RI( huge energy bust). Other than that we did not eat anything until the breakfast they survived yesterday morning. On the subject of food. These rallies guys put on a fantastic spread before and after the event.

Staying alert really wasn't an issue until south of Boston at about 8pm on rt95 but the crazies out on the road at night kept us focused on the task at hand and at no time did either one of us think is was dangerous for us to continue riding. I will say our stops later in the day were a lot longer than our stops early on. We had "banked" so much time early in the day that those longer breaks never affected our finishing in the 24 hours.

I bought an airhawk seat cushion a couple weeks ago($60 on e-bay) and can't say enough about how well it worked. I had some discomfort yesterday after the ride but it never approached pain and today I have no lingering affects.
My buddy was on a ZZR with no extra cushioning and he didn't fare as well.
