    Twenty-nine hours into the ride John now is about 90 miles northwest of Dawson Creek BC. He apparently stopped for a rest break of 3.5 hours in Fort Nelson between 0005 and 0330 EDT this morning. At his last position he'd run 1,870 miles at an overall average of 64+ mph. He needs to stay above 58 mph to achieve his goal.

    A break?

    John arrived on the outskirts of Edmonton, BC at 1102 EDT, 2,311 miles and 34.12 hours into the trip. He may be taking a break. It's 1210 EDT now and he hasn't moved in just over an hour.

    He's moving.

    2311 / 31 (subtracting about 3.5 for the earlier break) = 74.5mph moving average.

    At 1500 hours, Alaska time, or 42 hours into the ride John is approaching Moose Jaw, SK. He is roughly half way by my estimation.

    Cruising

    At this point John is within an hour of the U.S. border at North Portal. From there it's under 100 miles to Minot ND, where he'll probably take another break and have his pit crew take a long look at his bike. At his current overall average of 66.2 mph, he's on a pace to attain his goal with 8-10 hours to spare.

    At 2900 miles, I've got him at 66.13 mpg overall average. He will need that time reserve about 24 hours from now when he might need to sleep for 6 or 7 hours. If his FJR holds together, things are looking damn good.

    Pit Crew?

    I thought he was doing it alone, just one man and one machine...didn't know there was a "pit crew - looking over the bike"...what we got a chase van? Sounds like a Jay Leno ride...hope there's at least one charity involved, not just a tire and energy sponsor?

    Pit crew means friends along the way willing to help a fellow MOA member complete this adventure.

    You sure that's him? The bike on that link is green?

    Thanks for posting that. I wasn't sure if there was a public way for us to follow along.
