Just did my first SS1000 yesterday. Went from Ames out to Pratt, KS then north to Russell, KS and back to Ames.
Here's a link of the map for those interested.. map
Total distance was 1086 miles. I started at 6:46 AM Friday and ended at 2:23 AM Saturday. Trip was exhausting, but fun. I never really got too terribly sore, but pretty tired and cold by the end of the trip.
