Some of the "first" Victory rides -

IBA - 49 States in less than 10 days - done on a Kingpin
IBA - Over 2000 miles in less than 36 hours - done on a Vision 8-Ball
IBA - UCC - Key West, FL to Prudhoe Bay, AK - done on a Vision 8-Ball

Also the first person to ride a Victory in all 50 states.

I think riding on the moon would be easy.
Thats what I'm looking forward too as well (not the moon ride but extreme riding on a Vic). After reading several Rollin trip reports I got the bug and did my first IBA SS1K back in May. Once the bug was firmly attached, I began looking at what I would like to do off the IBA web site and doing it on a Victory. Last month I completed a SS1K combined with the Tour of Honor (Virginia) hitting all 7 memorials which classified it an extreme ride. Did it on my 04 TC and had a great ride with my co-rider. From that, 5 other Vic riders completed the same ride under some extreme conditions as well. Its like a virus... lol

Looking forward to what this coming year has in store for me on my new Vision... Looking at a couple TOH rides as well as 2 extreme IBA rides...

2011 White Vision - Nuvi 550, Lowers, Lloydz 2nd filter, Vic perf filter, CB/Icom, 96 Brake LED's, Clear Signal lens/Switchbacks, VIC Hwy Pegs, Stebel Horn, 7Jurock 15" Shield, PCV, Lloyd ATS and Variable intake, Ness honkers

2004 V92 TC - S1 flash, level 1 slip-on, Ness big sucker K&N, ISO Grips, 4x1.5 Highway Hawg Risers, extra chrome (never too much), JM 2k CB 4' antena, Mustang seat, HD Front TS & Lowers, OD Pulley

Congratulations on your ride! Adding stops to an IBA ride would add to the challenge.

Dedicated GPS units are horrible. I use my phone with Google Maps so it is up to date the instant I drive in to an area. Phone mount on the handle bar, and a nice large 4.8" screen.

Planning next summers trips are what these long hard winters are for.

My rides are planned around 3 weeks vacation alloted to me by the wife,so have to make the best of them.The other 3 are used for family events although I may still ride to them.

I've reserved 2 weeks each of the last 3 summers for riding coast to coast.It's taken me 6 weeks to ride solo across all lower 48.The 3rd week's used for a casual type group ride with 4 friends although we average 3k mi. or better that week.

The Iron Butt rides are the 1st 24-36 hrs out on the flat slab across the flat lands or over some stretch of road I've been on several times.I make it a point to put on 10k mi. or better those 3 weeks.

2010: I40-I70 corridors out to Smokey Mt. Natl Park,NC coast then across to the Oregon coast.

2011: I80-I90 corridors out to Laconia NH Bikeweek, Maine,down the Eastern Sea Board to DC,Kentucky, Minn.,across to Seattle.

2012: I70,I40,I10, corridors out to Helen Ga.Victory Rally,SC coast,Fla,across to So. Cal.

2013: Alaska to Mexico,Lord willing

I use a trip planner,550 Zumo GPS(but just ordered the 350LM for improved route and map planning,my xmas gift from the kids) and have found the Harley Davidson Atlas which I used to get free but worth the $30 for mapping the best motorcycle back roads.

Today I took the bike to Lowes to get some more zip ties. That rats nest in the fairing is going to be brought under control directly.

It's 3.2 miles one way.
I exceeded 100 mph twice on the way there and once on the way back, for better than a mile each instance.
It took me three hours to get home with them zip ties.

Good question.
What kind of rider am I? Apparently the kind that can't even do a milk run in a respectable amount of time.

Red.

We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go
