LOVE your reports and photos. I'm seriously looking at Cross roads/Vision 8 ball for next ride. You've proven their durability (Victory) as well as your own!! Congrats

Thanks Mudboot!
I have had 3 Victory's and have done long IBA rides on all of them with no problems. I have been very happy with my Victory's.

I'm hoping to try another LONG IBA ride next year.

Wow, very impressive! I've done a "bunch of SS 1000s," and one BBG (54 mins to spare), but I've never considered a BB2000. Thanks for the inspiration!

Rollin, how about the human side of the report. run us thru the fatigue timeline.

Did your ass get sore, how about tired muscles and such. Did you every feel like you were falling asleep?

What cruising speed did you try to keep?

You make it sound like it was just a matter of just passing so much time. I know it wasn't that easy.

Congratulations, BTW.

Thanks Pete!

"I know it wasn't that easy............."

Pete you're right. I think when I did all of the ride stories I made them seem easier than it was. They weren't.
I might have found my limit on this ride. I did take a lot of breaks and that was part of the reason I almost didn't make it.

No sore ass or tired muscles. I work out for months before the rides and that helps a lot.

I try to keep my speed at no more than 10 over -

I'm glad you came clean, John.

I never hear the personal, body level, description of these extreme rides. They really are brutal, and the BBG and your recent rides are the hardest of the short term ironbutt rides.

...and all you guys reading John's report, who haven't done any of these rides, need to know that it's all about efficiency and planning. It doesn't take a superman, it just takes the desire to do it.

.....although being a superman would help.

Great report and ride.

I just submitted the documentation for a 2000 Gold---my first "extreme", as defined by the IBA, ride.

I went to a hotel for about three hours, and was slowed twice by traffic back-ups from accidents. In the end, I only had 22 minutes to spare. Further proof that on the harder rides, every minute does count.

A BBG is on my bucket list. A 48-10 is too, but work makes that a bit difficult at present.

Congratulations on your accomplishments, and great ride reports as well.

Bill

Thanks Bill and congratulations on the 2000 Gold!!

Just an FYI - 3 months after I completed the 48-10 I started to regret that I didn't try the 49-10 so I had to do it again!

Super write up and pics.
Thanks for sharing.
I too am in the planning stages of my first SS1000 and the BB1500 the following day.
This fall when it gets a bit colder.

Awesome!

I've thought and thought about some kind of IB ride but that's as far as I seem to get. Now that the years are creeping up on me the chances of it becoming a reality seem slimmer all of the time. Hats off to those of you who are actually doing something other then just "thinking" about these things. My advice to others would be to go do it so that you don't have to have regrets later on. Great job!
