Well, I finally completed a SS1000. Just need to get my documents together and mail it all in and then wait. I rode from home out to Missoula, MT and back on I-90. Approximately 1029 miles (by GPS) in 16 hours and 37 minutes. It was a beautiful and hot day all the way.
Well, I made it home last night after a 900 mile push to beat Memorial Day traffic. Had a great time at the banquet and meeting some really fantastic folks. Some thoughts as I made my push yesterday:
- 11,000+ miles in support of chasing bonuses.
- Of that, 3,960 miles was for a round-about path to the banquet over 7 riding days.
- Number of times I could have been arrested: 1, but it was self-preservation.
- Average MPG: 46.4. And it was regular, not premium!
I am looking forward to next year’s rally.
John – note the free advertising on my rear fender. It is a good location because that is all anyone saw yesterday!
