Steve Broadhead

Terry a friend of Steve Broadhead's just sent me a note.

Steve Broadhead a LD rider set out to do THREE Back TO Back 1500 Mile BBG's timed out, at the end of his third leg, aproximately 1530 hrs, Az time, 1630, Tx time, for a 21hr 30 min+/-, third leg! Spoke to him briefly, from Wellton, Az, and he was PUMPED! Please share this good news with all concerned; he not only is safe, but, at least for a short time, satisfied!

That is just a hair short of insane! Wish I had done it.

Guess the bar has been raised for you now?

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Congrats

I had the pleasure of meeting Steve at the IBA Dinner in Jax. We had previously exchanged emails regarding his 48 plus ride and was more than agreeable to answer other questions at the dinner.
A good guy. And good on him for his latest accomplishment.

David,

You know, before I try Steve's 4500 BBG mark I have plans to do YOUR 10K in 10 days.

I have got to say that when I did the 3000 BBG I was really amazed at how well I was functioning during the whole ride. I think it is just something that you set your mind to and get it done. A mind over matter sort of a deal. It didn't hurt that Steve had a team handling him and keeping him on track.

I remember riding into South Dakota at the end of the first leg (1500 miles) of my BBG Gold. I had four hours for a motel...by the time I got through the construction site I had an hour and 45 minutes. I ended up sleeping on the grass by the convenience store. I was amazed how good I felt when I woke up. That would have been a whole different story *if* I would have had the frog strangling downpour of biblical proportions like we had in Texas on our Coast to Coast to Coast ride.

Oh gee, is it Spring yet?

I'd be happy to get more than 2 counties away from home. Spring is coming and my bike is in the shop again (see previous thread on self-inflicted (by the dealer) rear drive failure).

That is one thing I will NEVER forget! At least I was there with friends.

I still sometimes wonder what the heck I was thinking, leading a couple of GS riders through that over the peg's rushing river of water when we made the turnaround under the freeway to get back to that service station! I did have visions of newspaper pictures showing cars washed down stream while I was doing it though. Sure was relieved to come out the other side still upright and running!

In all the LD riding I did, the two worst thunderstorms ever were both in Texas! Worst wind ever was in Oklahoma, also twice.

Darn, I sure miss it!

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

[QUOTE=dshealey]That is one thing I will NEVER forget! At least I was there with friends.

To all of the leprechauns and fellow riders on the list:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Hey Steve....

Since we are neighbors it would be easy to get together for an IB run...

Im all for it and really would go on about the drop of a hat....

I downloaded all the instructions from the Iron Butt Association .....

I was thinking maybe a run down to St Petersburg and back which is a little over 1000 but im flexible.....

Wife and I discussed a run to Key West.....but its not quite 1000 miles....would be if we started from say Ironhorse or somewhere further north.....

anyway....im all for it and gonna do it this year....

give me a call or email and lets make a plan
