I have completed two IBAs the SS 1000 ( 1130 miles) and the BBG 1500 ( 1512 miles). I know there are quite a few here who have done more. so I am not expert for sure. I did enjoy both rides
I concur having someone else along helps make the trip an event. We followed the IBA suggestions. No Caffine, water, I also took a few Ibuprofen, ate light also snacked on Fig Newtons, Granola bars for snacks.
Took a change of clothes along in case, extra water, cell phone, extra shield for the helmet( clear for night), we each had a GPS to track time and mileage. I copied the IBA log sheets and had a pen along, at each stop recorded the time and Odometer reading first. Gas and Go most of the time, and we took the interstates
Jpegs helped alot, as did a heated vest for the early AM and Evening portions. Moto lights helped at night to see the road and illuminate the shoulders well.
SS 1000 was 19 hours, BBG 1500 took just under 22 hours.
