    3rd time is not always a charm ....

    I just completed my third SS1000 / 1600 ride. After the first two I figured this one would be a 'charm'. I wanted to add the Lower Great lakes SS1000 to my Lake Huron ride a month ago. Started out well enough with route advice from other caring IBs' and after a while even the sun was shining...

    Tucson to Boise SS1000

    I am a noob as of this past week. Last weekend I picked up a 2015 VMax in Tucson, AZ on Saturday and on Left for Boise, ID the next morning. 1054 miles and 22 hrs later I made it home. Other than the cold in Northern Nevada and Idaho, it was a perfect trip. I mailed off the IBA packet today...
