[color=red]He just beeped me… they’re at the first exit on I-95 just inside South Carolina. [/color]I have their whole route mapped out.
As far as the heat goes, I doubt they’ll hit anything hotter than what we have at home. It’s currently 93 here. He’s not wearing sunblock… it’s a mute point with all the gear he’s wearing. He’s a safe rider, and will sweat before risking a bad case of road rash. He’s wearing riding boots, jeans, a t-shirt, a mesh motorcycle jacket (with shoulder, elbow, chest, neck and back armor), and his helmet. If he gets too hot, he’ll take off the t-shirt, but he’ll still wear the jacket. Besides, 60-80 mph winds in your face is rather cooling! I know… I ride with him frequently. So long as they’re moving, they’ll be fine.
The shortest ride for Iron Butt status is the 1000 mile ride in 24 hours, which is appropriatly called “SaddleSore”. It’s a completely documented ride, with witnesses at the starting and ending points. The two of them did that a while ago, but went south towards Miami instead. You wouldn’t believe some of the Iron Butt rides… like the “50 CC” which is riding coast to coast in 50 hours! Or even more crazy, the “48-10”… ride through all 48 states in 10 days. :shock:
As far as me going with him… uh, no thanks. I’d want to stop and sightsee, they just want to ride. We have really nice seats on the bike, but I’d still get antsy and be whining to stop all the time. They don’t WANT the wives with them! LOL
