Greetings,
Completed my Iron Butt with time to spare. Went from Camarillo, CA (Departed at 0330) and arrived Denny's in Flagstaff, Arizona at 11:30, departed Flagstaff at 12:15, arrived back home at around 7:45pm (16 hours 15 minutes). Total mileage 1043. These bikes were simply made to run. Next goal, Saddle Sore 1500. Anyone game?

Well done. I'm looking at trying one out next year, still trying to plot the course for one way

Congratulations! That's a great ride and a good time of year to make a long run in the SW, not too hot.

I did my SS1000 the end of July aiming for a lot of daylight. Left Seattle and turned around in Grenada, Ca then returned home. 1039 miles in 18.5 hours as I stopped for a long dinner to let some rush hour traffic ease up going north (15.5 hours running time).
The RG made it an easy ride of it and now looking to do a B2B, Canada to Mexico in under 36 hours but will wait until the spring to miss some of the rain here in PNW.

I actually looked into leaving my house and driving down to Modesto, as that is where my bosses are located. After looking into the IBA 'rules', I thought I read it that I cannot cross borders. If I start in Canada, then it needs to be all done in Canada.

There is no restriction on crossing borders for a Saddle Sore 1000, or if in Canada the SS 1600 km. Use Google Maps to plan your route, get start and finish gas receipts (make sure the time is correct and the receipt has an address, my ending gas station did not so I went to another gas station and it added 20 minutes to my finish time getting the final receipt) and your start and finish witness statements.
Riding from BC to Modesto would be a good ride, probably down I-5 in the US so easy access to gas stations and rest stops if needed.
GO FOR IT!
