    SS1K Iron Butt

    Left at about 6:30am yesterday and made it back at around 2am today. odometer showed just under 1040 miles traveled. I wasn't the only NC700x, never did take a picture of the other one.

    I was one of the later ones too, there are some crazy guys running these official ones. We got slowed up at least an hour in Toronto due to a traffic jam. Ran like 10-15 mph over through the rest of Canada, and 5-10 over when Is the states. U think we stopped 8 times, 6 for gas, twice because it was after midnight and I needed a breather

    Congrats! Toronto traffic always seems bad, last time I gave up and took the toll road (407)- what time did you pass through? Any problems at the border?

    We crossed over Matty morons bridge at like 730, so 11ish I think, and got past the traffic jamb around 1230 If I remember correctly. If I ever do this one again I am going to find a way to skip Toronto, and shoot back up to one of the required stops in Port Hope or Cobourg.

    I was just up in Milton all of last week. Seem like the 401 always has a trick up its sleeve to find a way to slow you down. Congrats

    Congrats to you again! I've picked a fairly easy route on the map. Living right off of I-90 in Idaho, i chose 250 miles east and that'll take me to Deer Lodge Montana and then back to my city. Then another 250 miles west which will take me to the top of Snoqualmie Pass in Washington state and then back home! I'll more then likely be running solo, so that way i'm much closer to home if i am unable to complete the 1k challenge for whatever reason. I'm shooting for either Saturday Aug 11th or the 18th. We'll see and i'll keep you posted. :{)

    Congrats on the achievement. If you file the paperwork with the IBA you'll join a very small group that's done a SaddleSore 1000 on an NC700X. The last time I looked it was like 5 guys IIRC. A few years ago Ld_rider did the entire IBA Rally on his, 1000+ a day for 11 days IIRC.

    It was a pre approved IBA event, paperwork is already filed by the guy that put it on. I'd be surprised if the number of NC is that low, there was another guy that did in the group of 25 or so at this event.

    You can check it for yourself. Start at 10/27/12 for Saddlesore 1000 finishers, 3/15/14 for Bun Burner 1500, 2015 & 2017 for IBA Rally.

    I hadn't checked the SS1000 finishers in a while. There might be more than 5 now but still compared to the list the amount of NC700X riders is very small.
