    That sounds like a lot of fun BG! Congrats on just finishing, I doubt if I could handle that many miles in 24 hours.

    I couldn't agree more on Colorado. If you haven't already seen them, here a some pics I took there a couple of weeks ago. Can't wait to go back!

    your bike knew the rally was gonna be too easy for you, so it decided to throw you for a loop, just to test your stamina. this is why i'm never gonna modify my bike, and stick with the stock cinder block of a seat. if the bike knows your uncomfortable, it won't bother you, if it thinks you're just gonna breeze through a 1k/24 hr race it feels like a car

    Sorry, I don't know where that is exactly! Somewhere in sort of northwestern CO would be my best guess.

    To those of you who asked how I actually did in the rally - sorry that I left that out. I finished fourth from the bottom (47th I think) with around 14,000 points and 1181 miles. The winner had around 50,000 points and 1723 miles.

    Here's a link to the 1088 website. The corrected mileage is posted but not the final scores yet. Utah 1088 site

    Thanks everyone for checking out my ride report and for the tech suggestions. I'll let you know if/when I figure it out.

    Okay!

    What's a buffalo run?

    Rebecca,

    Great report.

    Love the picture of you in that snazzy Minuteman vest.

    RE: Your fuel issue. Do you run regular unleaded at home? If you do when you go west into the mountains run mid or premium. Their summer blends can leave something to be desired.

    You probably had some water / crap in the filter which passed.

    When you do the IBR this summer you will want to purchase premium in Nevada, AZ, New Mexico and California. Utah, WY, MT and other western states may also use the summer blend.

    Best,

    Rob Nye
