    Well let's find out.................

    Who's in for Miles City, where are you coming from and when do you plan on arriving/leaving MC?

    I'm probably leaving Regina July 13, overnight in MC, then the run on July 14/15.

    The MOA magazine has different dates and times for the SS1K. Can someone please clarify which is correct?

    Redmond 1000

    [IBA=quote]
    Riders will start between 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 13 and 11:00 a.m.
    Thursday, July 15 from one of three locations east and south of Redmond:
    Mesquite, NV, Cheyenne, WY or Miles City, MT.
    The IBA site has the same information as shown on this site. http://www.ironbutt.org/forum/forum_...?TID=4121&PN=1

    I hope this is right since it gives a bit more time for everyone to start. Of course everyone starting about the same time might be fun to. Get to see some folks through the day.. (I suppose they'll be a few rally goers on the road)

    The ON also has Wednesday July 15th as the start day. The 15th is Thursday.....

    I'm sure they'll get more details as they get things worked out.

    I'm still thinking Miles City, Thursday Morning.

    The IBA site and information I post on this forum are correct.

    We faced a deadline for the Owners News and apoligize for any confusion.

    Seems like there is not much interest in Mesquite. Can someone explain why? I am planning:

    Gig harbor, wa
    to either Miles City or Mesquite (I keep oscillating)
    to Redmond, OR.

    Thus making an SS2000.

    Thanks,

    I'm starting in Mesquite!

    El Cerrito (SF Bay Area) down to Mesquite (657 miles) with a stop in Lost Wages to make enough money at the tables to fund my trip!

    No real reason..
    Been to Cheyenne
    Been to Mesquite
    Haven't been to Miles City. Might be bit cooler in July. Plus a trip through North Yellowstone and Beartooth pass on the way to Miles City might be kinda nice.

    Redmond 1K daylight ride

    As one who monkeys with such things, this could be a "daylight" ride.

    I didn't confirm Rob's solar tables but hey, he's a sailor (and Ironbutter.) Having spent a fair amount of time outdoors myself, consider this. IF you are sittting on your warmed up, gassed up bike at first light, ride from first light to twilight .... you will be in Redmond. You have about 15.5 hours + or-. It depends on how much you fudge presunrise and post sundown. I'm only suggesting averaging in the low to mid 60's mph.

    Personally I do a bit better than that with as much interstate as is involved with these routes. I've always found the key to such endevors is to "keep your feet on the pegs." It isn't about the going, it's about the stopping. This is gonna be a hoot!

    Spend some time on the IBA website. There is a wealth of wisdom there.

    I'm hoping to be going more than stopping.

    Stan,

    Did you take into account, in your 15.5 hours, the hour gained by going from Mountain to Pacific time zones?

    I didn't do time zone as IBA is 24 hours. So you gain but you don't gain. Sunrise and sunset will also vary by the clock on the wall but the sky will be consistent as will your butt. You will have about 15.5 hours of daylight at that declination at that time of year.

    Now my head hurts!

    I'm not smart enough to figure it out. I just thought that if one rode 1,000 miles west in daylight that you would be in daylight for longer than if you sat at the same location.

    But maybe not.
