I think this forum should have a dedicated Thread for IBA also. The Victory motorcycle is definitely a long distance bike. Faithful and comfortable too.
I think some riders set up their bikes for the distance riding too in special ways. Tips like that would be helpful. Different brands will also setup their bike in a different way.
Well I think there are alot more IBA style riders out there than posted in the couple threads started. Could be how they view the forum, like me, I hit the active then the V92/Vision forum to see if I missed anything. I know I have learned alot from Rollin's trip reports on other forums. I like one stop shopping and am registered on a couple other forums but like this one all around as the best. Im with you Ken, the information is beneficial. Example, me and another rider just took a 500+mile day ride working up some stuff for the 2013 Tour of Honor. It was an easy ride with temps in low 30's up to high 40's and we had a great time because of what I found under IBA threads for planning rides. Eleven hour ride documenting 3 POW/MIA memorials plus a fuel/food stop. We had a great time!
An IBA style forum may not take off but then again it may. I like quick references too. Tires, tools, routes, etc in one general area.For now, I am just adding IBA in the subject line in hope when users like HB search, this stuff will pop up. Looking forward to more postings and hearing what other long distance/endurance riders are doing.
