If anyone cares to read about riding 1000 miles in a day off-road in South Africa, here is a link to the write-up.

Any stops for performance awards would have killed his pace.

Figure 150 miles per tank, 9 gas stops. Figure 5 minutes per gas stop, so 45 minutes, so 14.25 hours rolling, 1270/14.25 = 89.12mph average. Except for a four year window*, you'd have to claim you exceeded the speed limit by 10-20mph the entire way... I don't speak for the IBA, but I don't know if they'd go there. Putting in miles by dint of sheer speed is kind of against what they espouse, which is more about keeping the wheels turning than flat out haulin' ass.

* OTOH, If you hit Montana when they didn't have a speed limit, that's perfectly possible. There is a guy who certified a 2000 mile day, doing all of it in Montana when the only speed limit was "reasonable and prudent".

Not quite as ironic for me as for the finishers on KTMs, a Suzuki and a Triumph.

I remember my first thousand-mile day, 1086 miles from Norman, OK to Kingman, AR. My big GSA just rolled the superslab of I-40, I kept a brisk pace, stretching at fuel stops, not over-eating and drinking plenty of fluids. Satellite radio was a must, I went on the next day to Los Angeles for another 500+ miles, the desert was boring and hot, with very little fuel stops. 1600+ miles in 36 hours, good times...

Pretty much. I was interstate most of the time, over the speed limit almost all the time, saw many LEOs along the way, they would look me over as I went by but otherwise left me alone. I timed it so that I was in Montana during daylight hours, triple digit speed most of the way across central/eastern Montana (if you've ever been through eastern Montana, you understand that no matter what you're on, you ain't got enough motor). Getting an IBA cert was an afterthought and as such they denied my entry for that run because I didn't have a witness when I started. Oh well. I know I did it and so do the guys I was meeting in Sturgis.

Dale Wilson (Warchild) did 1500+ miles a day for seven days on his Blackbird. I believe that still stands as a world motorcycle endurance record. It's really not hard to do if you A) have the time and B) can stay mentally in the zone.

Another of my goals is to do a 48/10 ride.

Across Kazakhstan

A few years ago I was sprinting from Poland to Almaty Kazakhstan
trying to catch up with a group of riders for a ride through Kyrgyzstan
and into Western China.

They were leaving on a set date and I really needed to ride with them
because of the permits to travel over some of the remote passes into
China from the Kyrgyz Tajic borders.

The day before the departure date I found myself in Petropavlovsk
in Northerk Kazakhstan with 1800 plus K's South to Almaty ahead of me.

I rolled out at 7 and gassed it. It was cold and raining to start but I expected it to heat up later in the day, though I had little Idea how hot
it would get.

The roads were mostly in good condition on the way to Astana with
frequent gravel sections.
But I was in full rally mode on my KTM 990 A and was blasting through
everything at 150 to 170 kph.

I got lost in Astana looking for gas and an ATM but needed few stops
that day what with the big Katoom fitted out with 44 liter tanks.

South of Astana it heated up to the high 30's and the wind howled
out of the West. I've ridden several times through Patagonia which
many of you know is famed for it's treacherous cross winds and
these were every bit as bad ass.

I was making good time not seeing any police and staying on the gas
when about three in the afternoon a huge cloud of black smoke
loomed ahead. This was open rolling scrub brush desert and the
cloud of smoke was immense.

As I got nearer the fire, what little traffic there was, was pulled to the side of the road, the wind was gusting 40 to 50 kph and the flames were
up to the edge of the pavement.

Up ahead I saw a truck going in, I followed staying close to his bumper,
There was no way to know how far it was to the other side of the fire,
visibility was 50 feet, little whirl wind of ash and dirt would fill my helmet
trashing my face shield.

There was an ebb and flow to the run through the fire for a few K's
fire would be raging along the side of the road and then we would
break out into a section not yet burnt over and I could sprint up
beside the Cab and give the trucker the thumbs up. The Russian
Truckers are tough son of a guns and the dude looked serious.

Then back into the fire, all in all it was 30 to 40 minutes and the
one mitigating factor on our side was the small size of the brush burning.

Around six I caught the SUV's that were hauling the Polish riders bikes,
they had left Poland a week before me and I was in the process of riding over six thousand K's in six days, from Poland through Ukraine
across Russia and through Kazakhstan.

Well I made it to Almaty at 2 in the morning after some long difficult
gravel sections.

!825 K's of total intensity.







Had another long intense ride from Tierra Del Fuego to
Buenos Aires but that's another story.

Twist it, Max

That is an achievement! My wussy SaddleSore 1000 was on the US slab and it took me 17 hours. I rode a steady 80 mph when moving, but struggled to hold a true average above 60 mph with rest & fuel stops. I can truly appreciate how much harder it would be to do this offroad - even on smooth dirt.
Congrats!

wow, only 5 minutes per fuel stop

when I plan a LD ride, I use 15 minutes "off pace" per fuel stop, allows me time to get off the highway and get to the station, I never pay at pump, getting off walking inside to prepay then again to get change gives me the stretch I need every 2-3 hrs, I get 190-205 miles per tank

Right. Just stay in the zone for 22 hours a day, sit here, twist that, and hope you don't run out of tire in the middle o' nowhere, Nevada.

On pavement, I ride for 3 hours and stop for a half hour or so. 3 hours at 70 makes more than 200 miles and the full half hour stop. Less than 200 miles at three hours nets a shorter stop. More than 200 just ends the ride sooner. Doing 1000 miles is an easy 17 hours, sixteen hours on the clock if you head west and gain an hour. This includes two hours of time NOT moving.

Sure, you gain an hour of daylight- but not trip time. Still have 17 hours of trip time.

First trip across nevada, westbound, I watched four sunsets in a row as I rode over successive rows of hills. Was kind of neat. Then again, being Nevada, it was also a lot like a roadrunner cartoon.

PS- hug the Wolverine for me.
