I have been riding for a long time and in my youth I could hold my own on IRON BUTT rides. Which are LONG distance rides with few breaks in between, usually gas, water or something to eat then back down the road I go. It wasn’t always fun but I could do it and that made me feel better about going places that where a LONG way away. My youth left like the RUNNING OF THE BULLS participants and reality sank in. There has got to be a better way to do this? I spoke to all my friends and family that ride and wrote down much of what they had to offer as again MEMORY is a terrible thing to waste. There was an abundance of things I could do to improve my travels and make my ride more comfortable.
