The 50 cc eludes me. I've made two attempts. one on the NC and one on the FJR.
The 50 cc is (more than other rides) an exercise in sleep deprivation.
If you take the shortest route (San Diego to Jacksonville), you have 6 hours down time at the half way point. (Amarillo, TX on the I-40, San Antonio, TX on I-10)
I planned to sleep there, but I was dangerously tired when I got half way. Never ride beyond your ability, and I was certainly doing that by the time I got there. I knew it, so I backed off. DNF.
I think about trying again, leaving at 4 or 5 AM would be better than later, like I did last time...
I'd like to try again, but I don't handle loss of sleep well.
300 miles, camp, 300 miles, then camp again is a pleasant existence... makes me enjoy riding the way IBA challenges... just can't.
