it feels good to have done it but ! i don't think i will do it again any time soon .
for the most parts it went well i started planing this over a year ago .
i had the two weeks pick out that i would make a run at it .
week #1 sept 19th and week #2 oct 17th rain date .
the route i pick out was I 20 from jacksonville al to shreveport la 500 + miles and back a route i know well . i also check with AL , MS LA ,DOT for road work
i had all my fuel stop worked out to ever 125 to 150 miles and had them down to and E T A .
i used my G P S to keep up with speed / miles / time / . my avg speed was 56.6 and used a debt card to track the trip .i used my cell phone for music / weather and to stay in touch and it was nice to talk to someone when you get board . food and water all came from home i think this help out a lot with time .as for the weather from sun up till sun down it was fine at night it got cool but i had all my leather and rain gear with me . as for my ride and 06 V T X 1300r did great .
so if you have not done a SS1000 yet give it a try ............jduck
