Minute Man 1000 June 6th thru the 8th

Anybody interested in the Minuteman 1000?

http://www.minuteman1000.com/

I think I am going to do it this year. It is something that I have wnated to do for since I started riding. It is an open weekend for me so I think I am gong to give it a shot. I will probably register for the Saddle Sore 1000.

I'll be there. Been wanting to do this for years, and decided this is the year I am doing it. I already registered for the saddle sore. Just so happens that I bought an '06 LT a month ago!!

A couple of friends and I are in the process of deciding who can and who can't right now.

Re: Minute Man 1000 June 6th thru the 8th

I'm debating whether to register or not. Will make a decision within the next 2-3 days. I'm more concerned about having the energy (safety is the point) to do it. This would be my first IronButt...

Registered for Minuteman 1000 June 6th thru the 8th

I registered for the SS1K Minuteman rally; I didn't see any other LT riders on the online SS1K registration list. Anyone looking for a Saddle Sore 1K certificate? See you at registration on June 5.

Re: Minute Man 1000 June 6th thru the 8th

I'd like to hear from others who plan to ride for an IBA certificate for the Minuteman 1000 on 6 June. All the folks I know in my immediate area are not interested in LD riding. So far this year, I've done a trip to WI, MN and DC. Coming up, New Orleans/Savannah and later to Lake Placid. In June it's off to Ventura and San Francisco. So plenty of LD riding planned but the Minuteman would be my first 1K ride; I've never managed more than 800 in a day. If there are list members that are going on the 1K IBA certificate ride on June 5, please send a PM, I'd like to hear from you. And Tony, thanks for posting the link to your successful ride last year.

Rob and his team put on a great rally. The food is top notch. If you are on the fence and don't think you can complete the ride just go and have fun. These rally's bring together all levels of riders. I guarantee you will gain knowledge and be bit by the LDR bug not to mention great sights and great roads.
