Bike: 2001 XLH883
Distance: 1,100+
Time: 22 hours
Ride: IBA SS1K attempt, I-10 to Las Cruces, I-25 to ABQ, I-40 to Flag, and I-17 back to the 602.

I never ended up sending in my paperwork, although my friend did. I didn't feel like I did anything worth bragging about. We left early Saturday, came back early Sunday, and I rode to work on Monday.

If I try it again, I'm going to do it on a CM200 or something--THAT would be a challenge.

I like it all. Well, except for the bar-hopping rides. That doesn't do much for me.
I do agree that a there is no such thing as a bad ride, but I find after a certain point "making miles" overshadows everything else. I suppose after many years as a long haul driver, "making miles" has become a distasteful concept to me

For me riding is like eating a fine meal, it's to be savored for it's own sake, not a challenge to accomplished.

Thats why I said "I think". Nothing wrong doing what you enjoy if it is done safely and with consideration.

Was supposed to be a short day on the BRP. The older GPS didn't show any campgrounds near. So it was a butt numbing 200+ miles. My ass usually starts getting sore before 100 miles on the torture instrument they call a KLR seat.
