Following Tim’s lead I did an Iron Butt Association Saddle Sore 1,000 ride on Friday. Stayed in Texas and went NW of Houston as I had ridden NE several times for BMR. Total mileage was 1,038 in 17:30. Temp got up to 104, I drank 3 100 oz Camel backs from my tank bag and 4 large gator ades at gas stops.

Interesting scenery included LBJ state park and huge wind farms. Hill country around Austin is also nice.

The FJR is a good bike for this type of ride – very smooth, cruise control and electric windscreen to adjust airflow.

Had a fun day, different than BMR as the only stops were gas and rest / food Sent the paperwork in, $46 to be an Iron Butt is good value compared to Ironman.

Well, I finally completed a SS1000. Just need to get my documents together and mail it all in and then wait. I rode from home out to Missoula, MT and back on I-90. Approximately 1029 miles (by GPS) in 16 hours and 37 minutes. It was a beautiful and hot day all the way.
