Congratulations on your run. Now start checking out the LD rallies. It becomes addicting.

BTW, the Yamaha Venture is a great LD stead.

Congratulations, and thank you for a great ride report!

You made one hell of an effort, riding through a lot of adversity, on a bike most people would be afraid to ride out of town.

IBA #297

Hey now,

What a great report and my hat is off to you for a monumental effort.

FIWI, all the folks posting props to your ride that have three digit IBA member numbers had completed at least one Iron Butt Rally and to a person would agree that you did something special.

Anyone can drop 25 large on a gold wing and knock out a SS1K, very few can rescue a 30+ year old bike and face the adversity you did. I've done a few IBR's and I don't think I could handle the ride as well as you did.

Send in your paperwork please. You're the kind of guy that the IBA is all about and I look forward to reading about your future rides, even the short ones. You tell a great story.

You got'er done.

Great all around. Great rebuild on an old bike. Great job on the SS1000. Great ride report and a super first post. I hope you get your IBA certification and I get to meet you at an RTE. Some riders might even do a SS1000 to attend an RTE. (Of course, I mean riders like you!)
Thanks for taking the time and effort to share the trip with us.

A hearty WELL DONE!! Great repot and super ride on a vintage biike. I have done several IB rides, but take the easy way out on a big ole GL1800. Hats off to you on building the bike and making the ride.

Watch out this LD riding is addictive.

Great job and I did the same thing leaving my wallet on the counter at a Waffle House in Phoenix during the IBR5K. Had to back track 150 miles to collect it and the temps. we're in triple digits. What's important is you managed to salvage the ride and keep going safely.

Great write up and welcome to the Monkey House

I was still very cold, thirty five Fahrenheit cold, so I did what I know best. I started singing. Yeah, right there inside my crash helmet. A mad Englishman, belting along I 40 East, singing at the top of his voice all the country songs that tell the world about this desolate place we call home.

Good to know I'm not the only one. Since I'm a new rider I don't feel comfortable riding with an MP3...so I just belt out whatever pops into my head. The colder it is the louder ya sing!

Old Bikes Rule!

SS1K on an old bike, on your first attempt! Wow you are the man! I had two failed attempts before finally making a 1000 miles in a day. I love the vintage Iron, you should post your build in old's cool. I did a 77 bmw last year for the IB5k.

Congratulations!

To say I'm impressed with your ride (and excellent report), is an understatement. I'm so impressed that I'm giving up my longtime lurker status to make the following comment.

LD riding requires both determination and perserverance. You, sir, have an abundance of both those qualities. Welcome to the IBA!
