Default 2013 IBA Memorial ride this fall

October 18 through November 3

Got this below email from Howard. I am working on 2 rides originating from the Hampton Roads area which I will be posting in the SE Regional as time approaches. One will be hitting 4 memorials within VA and the other to accomodate Howards SAVE THE WEEKEND hint.

What is differnt about the annual IBA Memorial Ride? Well, if you havent done an IBA ride before, this is the perfect time to experience it. The IBA memorial ride consists of a mentor rider who sharing with a 2nd rider that has not experienced this type of riding the mentee the process and execution of planning an IBA ride and explains the paces of executing an IBA ride safely.

The IBA memorial website will have a list of registered riders as well as WHO they are riding in memory of. It can be military, family or maybe a fallen friend. Last year I took my neighbor out for this and not only was he move by the memorials we stopped at (That is NOT mandatory, it was just part of our ride) but the time to meditate on what we were riding for and enjoying the scenery. You will get a special IBA memorial patch and certs which I might ad were VERY impressive last year as well as the chance to show a non-IBA rider this style of riding. Of course the Mentor should have his/her mentee provide the coffee and snacks.. LOL

I will be updating this thread as I find more info or if someone else has more current info please feel free to add to it. Questions are absolutely welcome!

In response to many emails I've received in the last week,
YES!
There will be a Memorial Ride this Fall, but this year it will be bigger and better than in the previous two years. I can't say a bunch more, since we're still working out the fine details, but I can tell you that we will have a seventeen day window for the ride--that's three weekends--from October 18 through November 3.
And on that last weekend, there's going to be something real special, so save that weekend!
More info to follow in a short while.

Well the dates are in and time to start registering with Howard so we can cover all 50 states this year. I forgot to see how many Victory's made the ride last year but hoping by posting here the word will get out more and we can make a push at covering the lower 48 if not all 50.

This is a great time to show someone the ropes of IBA style riding and doing it nation wide memorializing someone you know and lost family or friend I think is a great way to break the new folks into it. Last year I took a friend who served in the Army and one of his tours was up in DC for burial. It was a moving trip as he told me about some of his memories of those who gave it all. We visiited 7 memorials in the state of VA under the Tour of Honor ride and it made for a challenging 1000+ miles stopping and some very moving memorials and paying our respects. I hope to see some folks around here get interested in commiting to this event this year. What better way to remember somone than on two wheels seeing the world from the saddle? If anyone has questions about his, hit me up or email Howard Directly!

Safe ridin all!!!

Iron Butt Association Third Annual Fall Memorial Ride

This year's memorial ride will be special!
Each year the lives of many of our fellow motorcycle riders and loved ones are cut short. In their memory, a select group of riders will participate in a Saddle Sore 1000 during the same time period--October 18-November 3, 2013. We hope to have riders participating in all 50 states, and in all of the Canadian provinces. This 17 day period was selected because the weather across North America is generally good—not too hot and not too cold. This year's event will culminate in an IBA Party (and ride) in Dallas, Texas, on the last weekend of the ride, November 1-3, 2013.

Go to www.ironbutt.com/texas for more details.
You have multiple opportunities this year to participate in the Memorial. You can ride your SS1K in your local area, you can do a ride-in SS1K to Dallas, or/and you can do the special ride at the Dallas Party. Or do all three!
And to make this extra special, Mike Kneebone will be in Dallas to present your certificate to you (if we get your documentation according to the rules we'll publish later).

The IBA will issue a special certificate for this event.
To specially honor our fallen brethren, we’re asking each you to convince one of your motorcycle friends who is not an IBA member to ride the Saddle Sore with you.
This will give you the opportunity to mentor the ‘newbie’ in the skill of route planning, navigation, hydration, and ATGATT before and during the ride.

The person for whom you’re riding does not have to be a former IBA member, or even a former motorcycle rider. It can be anybody that is special to you; somebody that has had an impact on your life.
What better way to honor our departed friends than to bring new members into the sport we all love. This will be a fun event! IBA will issue special certificates for the mentor and the mentee, and a special patch for the event. A special website will list all the participants and for whom they’re riding. We’re working on other ideas to make this event special.

So plan to ride the Memorial with us this year, and come to Dallas for the grand finale. Recruit a mentee.
If you're going to Dallas, then follow the instructions at www.ironbutt.com/texas. If you're doing a ride in your local area, or planning to do a ride-in to DAllas, then send me an email.

Default 2013 IBA Memorial Ride 1000+

My second year participating and again a great ride full of moments remembering 2 important family members and a very good friend. This year I had fully planned on and started routing a 1000 mile ride for this event talking with my friend Brett (Mr Chips) as well as 2 other riders. One of the intents of the IBA Memorial Ride is to mentor new IBA riders in the proper execution of endurance riding and sharing the experience with them. The IBA Memorial Ride is something more than just knocking out 1K and moving on, your riding during a specific time (now 6 years running) of the year coordinated with other riders within the US and on an international scale now.

This year, I rode again for my Father and Uncle both Veterans and who were lost to cancer way to early in life and a dear friend JoAnne Allen who has been a true friend to my wife since the mid 80’s and her life was cut short suddenly. Here is my trip report, I hope it inspires someone to ride this event next year.
3 weeks prior to my ride date I decided to dedicate this years ride to my JoAnne and reroute my ride to Ohio which round trip was going to be just over 1300 miles. Since I am an extreme kinda guy, I will allocate 2 hours visiting my friend and his family and return to point of origin within 24 hours. They were very happy to hear what was taking place to memorialize their momma’s passing and very grateful.

The route left Chesapeake VA at 0400 which would put me into the Blue Ridge mountains at sunrise, down into the Valley on 64W shortly after and that is where I would do my devotion time during the ride for my family and friends. Weather was going to be slight chance of rain, cloudy and temps starting out at 40. I knew I would loose a few degrees within the first couple hours, fuel points were about 200 so I would be hitting 2.5 to 3.0 hours. For my fuel stops I had planned odd stops gas-n-go and 2nd a little breather. First hour in temps dropped to 34 and but traffic good. Vision performing flawlessly, was making great time up past Richmond Va but suddenly that cold front that was spoken of showed up. Cross winds increased, temps dropped to mid 20’s and it was me, the Vision and heated grips/seat. Made it through the first fuel stop and into the mountains with the sun rising in my mirrors… What a picture perfect moment as some old Gospel songs JoAnne used to play came on the Ipod.. It was absolutely the highlight point of the ride short of seeing my friends. As I made it through the mountains, the sun came out for about 10 minutes, temps then dropped to 23 and steady with a cross wind that cause a serious lean on the bike. Almost six hours into the ride, I haven’t seen another bike on the road yet..I wonder why.

Fueld and next few hours was spent with temps FINALLY getting up to mid 30s. On 77N, I seen a PACK of HOGS coming at me and thought “WoW, HD’s… Must be in the 50s”… Pretty close, the temp check was 48 on the bike. Finally warming a bit and out of the cross wind I staying steady on the bike at no more than +10 over and made it to Ohio in 9.5 hours at 630 miles. I had lost about 4mph from the crosswinds which were causing too much fuel consumption at +10. Remembering it is steady that wins not speeding, I spent the allotted 2 hours with my friends. Priceless! Back on the road, +10, 70East was fairly clear and wind at my back I felt the worst was over. For the most part, 500 miles and no issues. What I had hoped was my last fuel stop north of DC turned into the longest 2hours of the ride.

First, a gent wanted to talk about my Vision… Gosh, I can’t just leave him hanging. He offered a cup of coffee, we chatted. 20 EXTRA minutes gone. No problem. Will stay steady on the throttle and still make it by around 2:30 am. Plenty of time. Wrong! Just south of DC, state troopers shut 95S down to restring a power cable across the highway. Rerouted thorugh town I lost almost an hour there. My departure time was 0405 and I wanted to end there too. Im going for it. I planned an GasNgo stop in Richmond at a station just off the offramp and opted to set the cruise on GetterHome. Hooked up with a couple other cars most of the way to the beach and pulled in to my departure point with 30 minutes to spare. What a Ride! 1320 miles, 6 states, 1 important face to face with a good friend and got to talk bikes all under 24hrs.

My adrenaline was pumping so hard it was almost 6am before I got to bed. What a trip, what a bike and what a memory. Didn’t get many pics but I am now ready to tackle the SS1500 Bun Burner Gold. Figure the time I was stopped and trim a little at a fueling points, I have this!

I wanted to say thanks to Rollin for getting me rolling on IBA rides and his trip reports, Brett for being OK I changed our ride, and LLoydz for the performance enhancement a few weeks ago. The Vision was easily moving up the mountains, in the head wind in 6th gear and plenty of giddyup!
Ride is specifically dedicate to my Dad, Uncle and JoAnne. You all are missed and can’t wait till we ride together next year.

Safe ridin all!!!

Tim
