Following Tim’s lead I did an Iron Butt Association Saddle Sore 1,000 ride on Friday. Stayed in Texas and went NW of Houston as I had ridden NE several times for BMR. Total mileage was 1,038 in 17:30. Temp got up to 104, I drank 3 100 oz Camel backs from my tank bag and 4 large gator ades at gas stops.
Interesting scenery included LBJ state park and huge wind farms. Hill country around Austin is also nice.
The FJR is a good bike for this type of ride – very smooth, cruise control and electric windscreen to adjust airflow.
Had a fun day, different than BMR as the only stops were gas and rest / food Sent the paperwork in, $46 to be an Iron Butt is good value compared to Ironman.
