Saddle Sore 1000, Nov 22 - November 9, 2008, 02:47 AM

I've been wanting to do a SS1000 (1000 miles in 24 hours) for awhile now, and next summer I'm going to try to do a 50cc (50 hours coast to coast), but I have to do a SS1000 first.

Here is the route I'm planning on doing: Click Gonna be on the road at 4am, hopefully back before midnight. Temps look like they'll be mid 50's for high, mid 30's for low, but it's a little far off to be sure.

If there's any interest, post up Here are the rules for getting the certification if you want to read them: Click

I have done 2 near ss1000's both were within 150 miles and neither was intended to be official. Both of my routes included a good amount of back roads and roads like rt 50. I would highly recommend that you stick to the super slab to cover the most amount distance in the least amount of time. By the time you factor in towns, traffic and twisties your average speed can drop to 45 real quick.

Do yourself favor... go 81 towards TN. Its a straight shot, plenty of refuel stops, easy traffic, speed limit is higher and going south is usually warmer. When I did the SS1000 we averaged 75 MPH straight down 81 did a U- outside if Kingsport and returned on 81. It took us 16 hours.

Good luck.

Got the music covered with Sirius.

My bike doesn't go faster than the speed limit, so I won't need a radar detector

I want to do it,but not on my current bike.Make sure you contact your credit card company,I've heard of people saying their credit cards were shut off because of the back to back stops at gas stations.


ALL MY HEROES ARE RUSSIAN...GO CAPS!

Well you see, Norm, its like thisA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

I've done a couple SS 1000s.

The first was on my VFR and I did as many twisty roads as possible during the day and slabbed it at night. It wasn't too bad other than the cord showing on my rear tire at the end of the ride. Unfortunately the guy who ran the even died before he could send in my paperwork.

The second was about 95% slab on my DR-650 and it was the worst time I've ever had riding a motorcycle that didn't involve crashing. I had such a miserable time that I decided I didn't want to have anything to do with the Slab Riders Assoc. and never sent in my paper work.


Ill believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.

I went from Yellow Springs Ohio to Woodbridge a few months ago and it took me 11.5 hours. I made a couple stops tho. I would avoid rt. 50, it's too slow.
