You've got my attention and respect my friend if you ironman this with a big bike. That would be awesome!!! I'm hoping to ride Starvation Ridge next year and thinking about iron manning it if I can't get a team together. If you plan on iron manning this please post up your prep to the bike and yourself as this comes together.

I wish I could ironman this or any other race on a big bike. Although I have a pretty well setup BKTMW 800 that I have raced a hare scramble with, I am thinking my xcw350.

At the risk of losing my OC card, that sir is one of the finest 800s I've seen. Nice job. I hear ya on a 24hr ironman on a big bike. Someone will do it soon. I'm running my 950 in the last race of the fall season in a couple weeks, 2.5hr ironman. Just hoping to finish! As for 24hrs, that's a whole different game, even on a thumper.

Good luck.

He had to paint it orange just to hope it would be a ktm, lol. That is one bad QSS BMW. Seems to be a well thought out machine. Not your normal latte getting unit.

Thank you. I am sure someone can ironman it....my thought is how to pick up a 400+ lbs bike on a get off after anything over 10 hours of racing.

I love the 950's. I wish you a great finish in your race.

Lol on the orange, although my real ktm (2014 350 xcw is black and white). I got this bike setup pretty well. At about 40 lbs less and Ohlins all around, she rides pretty well in sand and fast jeep roads. I have a 950 SE front brake MC/lever I still have to swap over to get rid of that ugly and in the way bobble head thingy sticking out and always bending when I drop the bike. I have eliminated the dual front brake setup so thinking the unit from the 950 should give me the right front brake feel.

9x0? Does this mean 950 or 990?

Because I'd take a flat twin anywhere that 800 would go . Or the Adv Ktm's, for that matter. They're faster but the terrain envelope. The SE is another matter, though.

I was actually thinking aboug all the chaffing and how much I would hate my bike and riding generally after 24 straight hours

I am thinking I can have at least two guys to work as a pit crew. One is a mechanic the other just fresh out of mechanics school in Ohio.

6 guys ride in shifts. 1/2 hour? 45 Min? Or 1 hr?

A ten mile loop? At 30 mph, that's three laps and about 20 mins per lap... So easy one hour, plus with a team of six you only really ride 4 hours. Seems like you would have to organise in terms of laps rather than time, no?
