Thanks for posting all this good information. I finished back to back SS1000 and BBG 1500's over Thanksgiving, as a prep for the 48-10. I too started with the "that's crazy" thought, when I read about the 48-10. Then I got to thinking....
I'm planning on doing the 48-10 in late April. I know that's kind of early with the potential for snow in a few places. But that's the only time that works until much later in the year. I'd rather ride in cold temps than the 90's.
The cracked headlight reminded me that I need to put on a headlight and oil cooler guard.
What did you use for a throttle lock or wrist rest? Not sure if the Victory has a cruise control.
