I posted this here for now (not in the rides forum)to see who might be interested in a Nevada SS1000. If there is enough interest we'll pick a date and go for it.

The basic Plan:
Time Frame - Mid Spring to early Summer
Route Distance: 1033 miles - all in Nevada which will make it eligible for the Nevada Saddle Sore 1000 pin.
Start and End in Sparks Nevada at a nice Casino, Hotel I have in mind. Stay Friday night (riders meeting that evening), complete the ride Saturday (0500 - 2200 approximately) and stay the night. Finishing with a Brunch on Sunday to tell our war stories.
This would be a very loose ride with a suggested planned route, stops and timeline. You would ride your own ride and do your own paperwork for the IBA. It would just be a chance to do a SS1000 with others and bumping in to them at the stops and such. It not an organized event and will have no entry fees, rules (outside side of the IBA paperwork requirements if you wish the cert) or regulations. Basically just a nice weekend out on the Motorcycle with a little ride so to speak.

I would be glad to help or answer questions from anyone that requests or needs help with the IBA/Long distance riding stuff. We will hopefully have a few IBA ride Vets in attendance to help out.

Well who wants to ride?

I am interested John, used to do Ca. Gumball Rally's in the 80's that were 800 and 1000 miles, I didn't know about Iron buttts in those days.
WOuld be nice to actually document one of these.

Oh wow Bob, I remember riding in a couple of those. In fact I think I still have a Gumball Machine trophy around somewhere. :D

I have been thinking about doing one of the long distance rides. I have never done a 1,000 miler. I would be interested. It would especially nice to be able to get some suggestions and tips prior to the ride.
