In all, the trip wasn't that tough, thanks to all the suggestions from you guys and the IBA. Carol and I had a great time and look forward to our next adventure!

First, Killer's right about the GPS...better they don't know. I've heard rides were disallowed cause of it. They're still sitting on my June run on which they can only prove my average total trip speed was 71mph...and that's not bad.

Second, NICE GOING and NICE GOING CAROL!!! Looks like a fantastic route and anybody who can stop to yake pictures of grazing deer on a SS1000 has A LOT going for them. That proly explains the 3 hours of "stopped" time. The next one will be easier...then it's a BB1500 and then you're going to look at 4Corners and then the CC50 and then... thumbsup.gif

Congrats, but max speed 116? Better not show that to the IBA.

 

That must be an error. Try reloading the page.

I must be thinking of somebody else's ride wink.gif

Hi,

 

Congratulations!

 

Bet you remember that heated gear next time.

Important thing about an IBA ride,you have to be geared up for all types of weather.

 

As others have said,this time of year with everyone out riding,it can take a month or two to get your certification back.

More than a month these days. I did a BB1500 (1,500 miles in 36 hours) in May and it's still not posted yet. I believe the data is current through the end of March. The way it's looking, I'm going to have another SS1000 done before the BB gets posted blush.gif(

 

Regards,

Remember they are volunteers who sift through mountains of paperwork on LD rides. You should get your certification in the next month or so. Mine took four months....

 

Cheers,

Congrats and well done with both the ride and the 'Tale!! clap.gif

 

I'm sorry for the new-found addiction you'll now be suffering from, though! eek.gif

 

But when you get around to either your Four Corners Ride or your 50CC Ride, remember that we're only 12 miles from the western end of Interstate 8 and only 18 miles from the southern end of Interstate 5 (and less from the San Ysidro Post Office, the SW corner of the Four Corners Ride). And we've got a bike shop, a tire shop, safe garage parking and a guest room! thumbsup.gif

Fantastic. Bravo!!!!! I'm going to do it next spring from my place south of Kalamazoo around that big old Lake. I will time it to get through the Gary-Chicago mess in the wee hours of the morning. The tunnel of trees is a fine ride. It was the capstone of my 8,000 mile trip this summer.

 

Let me know if anyone wants to do this with me next Spring starting in southwest Michigan.

 

You have earned a very special license plate holder. Well done.

Atta-Boy Jeff.....

Good thing you had the Missus with you- much better than a backrest grin.gif

They did cash my check so I know I'm in the mill.... thumbsup.gif

I think with all the ongoing construction, it's a mess through Chicago, even @ 3AM. We went out I-80, and then north up 39, to I-43 to follow the lake again in Wisconsin. Added miles, but not much extra time + no traffic
