    I gotta stretch my legs, 200 miles is all I need. The 2.2 Sportsters would piss me off, but I don't mind stopping every couple of hours. Never wanted to do an Iron Butt though. I can't even sit in a car for 400 miles!

    I've done four iron butt rides so far and didn't have the fuel cell on three of them. for more the usual riding I do I stop when I want to stop it just means I don't always need gas when I stop. the 7.7 gallon thank is good for about three hundred miles, I left home for mackinaw a few years ago and stopped in holly cause I was ready to get off the bike. on the way to old mans cave the group leader ran one guy out of gas, we siphoned some gas out of the fuel cell to get him to the next gas station

    I'm with Sprink. 200 miles is plenty... fill gas, empty Blatter, and stretch legs

    well I did my first iron butt ride because I was challenged by couzinjeff. after doing the first one ( lake superior ) I was done but got talked into doing the second IBA ride ( lower great lakes, erie and Ontario ), somewhere out on the ride I decided to get a cert for each of the individual great lakes IBA ride which only left lakes huron and Michigan. I have them all now so if I never do another one I'm ok with that but I would like to do an all Canadian IBA ride and I would like to do a bun burner gold 1500 just to have the patches

    The IBA's are inherently not safe but many find them cool. Shit I don't even want to do 1000+ miles in my truck at once, unless I can sleep during some of it.

    I usually run 80 - 85 mph doing an IBA ride which puts me on pace to finish in about 19 hours so I do have time to take a nap and finish on time
