The 90cc challenge. At this point I'm a pretender. I've done the 1000miles/24hrs, and 1500miles/36 hrs. A buddy and I have been kind of throwing this idea around, and have more or less nailed a departure of June 15th. On airhead GS's. I start this thread to hear from serious riders who do serious miles, to learn from their experience regarding physical and mechanical preparation, group size thoughts, departure time preferences, riding gear/wear, fuel stop strategies, route preferences, food/water requirements, and any other thoughts. The reason for GS's, is me really. On the other two rides, I was with guys on big new K bikes, and the effortless high speed mile eating is something not found on an airhead GS. I offered the request that to make it tough, but equal, that it would be a GS thing. There's a strong possibility of newer oilhead GS's coming along, but I'll deal with that. I can push my GS hard and it will take it. They can cruise faster on the open range land of the praires, but there are cops everywhere, and a stop with the police would slow things down alot. But to have equal amounts of wind/weather protection is the real equalizer I think. Ciao, Stebe G.
