Yep, that's me. Some perspective. The year was 1991 and I think IBA membership was less then 1000. No website and most folks I knew had not yet purchased their first PC. Memorial Day weekend, as far as I know and validated by IBA, I became the first rider to cross the continent on a motorcycle in under a day and a half (35:08) No tracking, GPS, 5 gal stock fuel capacity (Yamaha FJ1200). Even my radar detector failed early on. Diet of broken Granola bars and Gatorade sipped thru an aquarium hose. It took months to verify my claim but I can't say enough good about Mike Kneebone and his people. I only did 2 small rides after that. 1992 and 93 Cal 24 Hr Rally, organized by my long departed good friend, Peter Heesch. Met some great people, incl the infamous Ron Major (1992) Have great memories incl. chasing down Maynard Hershon when he left his route sheet at a checkpoint in 92 (my FJ came in handy for that little mission)and turning back at 3am south of Alturas due to heavy snow (mid June of 93. Horrible weather that year. ) I live in Ga. and gave up the long rides to start family. Recently, I stumble upon the verification letter from IBA and realized I never received the 50cc or the BBG 1500. My fault. Seems that my request ruffled some feathers. Keep in mind I have been out of the loop the entire time IBA has been on the web. NEVER heard the term "one ride-one cert". I realize some of you are fit to be tied with this Covid crap, but that doesn't necessitate trivial, petty, back biting . Reminds me of my daughters' stint in middle school. My "exploits" in the motorized saddle don't even rate compared to countless current and past IBA members. We all have some stories to tell. I assure you my innocent little retrospective request stole not a minutes glory from a single IBA member. Ride safe people !!
