I had the opportunity yesterday to complete a Saddlesore 1000. I would encourage anyone who has thought of doing one to make a few preparations and do it. I did an out and back and that worked for me. I figured when I got 500 miles out I would have a strong urge to come home and I guess it worked. I probably went a little fast but I wanted to be home before dark, for I felt that riding after dark after being up at 2:30 and leaving at 3:15 would probably be a bad idea. It took me 15 hours and 20 minutes. All interstate. Followed the advice of the Iron Butt site and it worked.
