Default Iron Butt Ride # 17 and 18 Completed

18 IBA rides completed on a Victory and never a breakdown! Not that I haven't tried; they always get me home.

Incredible! The first video, off-road was awesome. I definitely see why you put that big knobby tire on there! I can't believe that hitting that deer really didn't do that much damage considering the speed you hit it at. Out of curiosity, how many total miles do you have on the vision? If there was a picture of the total miles in your write up, I missed it

All I can say is WOW. Makes my 1500 weekend rides look very tame. I need to get out of the southeast more often

I was hoping I could cross the pass but it did turn out to be an adventure.

Thank you!

The Shinko 700 Series worked great in the dirt and mud. It even worked well on the pavement and in the rain, but it was LOUD at 80 mph.

My Vision has about 52,000 miles.
