Longest distance in 24 hours
« on: March 21, 2018, 09:45:12 AM »
I've signed up to do this years royal British Legion ride 1000 www.rblr1000.co.uk organised with the iron butt association. So 1000 miles in 24 hours looking forward to it....well mostly!
Years ago i rode to sachsenring with a small detour I clocked just over the 900 miles from home in less than 24 hours but that included plenty of autobahn to speed up the ground covered so almost cheating.hoping the xr will munch the miles with ease.

We’ve done a couple of thousand milers but without some serious distance  on motorways you’ll be going some.

Went to Dijon last year to a Classic Bike show, 800 miles in 16 hours, had a bit of a numb bum by the end of it but was on my Blackbird. Going to the Nurburgring in June but this will be on the XR. Should be an interesting ride as this will be my first big trip on it, we are hoping to do it in about 14 hours.   
If your not going to thrash it leave it in the garage !!

When are you going in June ? , I will be there in June we will be staying in Cochem. Always try to get to Cochem at least once a year. Great place to stay with lots going on stacks of Bars and places to eat. Plus great roads to Ride and of course the Ring is close by and always worth a visit.

I have every intention of riding an Iron Butt SS1K, or possibly a SS1K Gold this summer on the 'XR.

I originally abandoned all notions of such things when I first bought the 'XR.  After a few long rides on it, though, I feel confident it will perform admirably.  The only limiter will be fuel quantity.  The key to success is to keep the wheels rolling as much as possible.  Stop only for gas.  Do not take additional rests.  Fuel up close to your route. Blah Blah Blah.  The internet is rich with Iron Butt advice.

I think the XR will do an Iron Butt quite well.

All depends on which way you are going we normally ride down and comeback on the boat it’s very fashionable to do the boat both ways which means you’ve a better chance of doing more miles on a run to wales on a weekend  :002:

Drop out of the Picos and head for Salamanca assuming your looking for a little more culture than a few days on the piss  :008:

For those that travel with their spouses forget Potes,Fuentes de is the place stay  in the Parador think the term is zero light pollution of a night time  :005:
