This was my 14th IBA ride and the 5th IBA ride this year. The Wisconsin 1000.
1053 miles in 20 hours 48 minutes. The ride also included a stop at Victory's birthplace.

The extra challenge was that 75% of this ride was done on two-lane highways with a lot of small towns with 25 mph speed limits.

That's easy Rob....it's the new Victory autopilot feature. It senses the traffic....all you have to do is wake up for fuel stops. Seriously, those are some impressive accomplishments. Especially with the small towns thrown in. I have completed 3 IB's, but mostly riding interstates or highways. My first was on my Vulcan 900. Doing it on my CCT almost felt like cheating. :cool:

Did 6k in 12 days earlier this year, I'm sure some of it would have qualified since we has some 850 days that started at 9:00 am and we had another 200 in by 9:00 am the next day, 1st day was 925 miles in 17 hours, tried to get the boys to finish the 1k but they wussed out on me, I love long ride days

How? Not really sure but I haven't had any problems staying awake and no problems with pain. I really enjoy riding at night.
It could be I have a little truck driver blood, my dad was an "over the road" truck driver since before I was born.

Thank you!
The small towns did add a lot of time and required a lot of patience!
