    So, Ishi moved down to a Burgman 200 (from a Burgman 400) ? Maybe Ishi was starting to feel too much like an avaricious American - with all of that excess displacement. :lol3

    Congratulations to all participants ! That is a challenging ride with lack of high-speed interstates, coupled with photograph requirements, and potential deer strikes.

    I think it was St. Ignace. My recollection was that when I got to the station in the Soo, I just missed everyone and filled up myself. When I got to St Ignace, I was surprised by the number of bikes there. Brian and Doug were taking a break off to the side and I joined them for the St. Ignace to Iron Mountain stretch.

    There was an e-mail a week ago saying the certs should start being mailed out this past week. I am hoping to see mine this coming week.

    Haven't seen mine yet, and I double checked, I did indeed send the money via Paypal, so it should be all set.

    Try and forget about it, then you can be excited all over again :happay when this unknown package shows up in your mail

    Got mine today, after receiving a call asking if they had my correct address. Having recently moved, it didn't match what they had on file. But that is strange because they mailed a ToH SS1K to this address earlier this year. But it is nice to know there are real people behind the organization taking care of things.

    Certificate and everything else came yesterday. Happy to say I am now an official member of the iron butt association.

    Got my cert a few days ago, too. The paperwork included shows all the Riders are listed as Finishers.
