Meat Lovers 1000 or our first iron butt cert ride

My wife and I are attempting to do our first iron butt certification. Saddle sore 1000 and maybe a bun burner 1500. We figured we needed a reason to make it happen instead of making excuse so while we are at it we are doing this IBA Meat Lovers 1000

If everything goes well, we should get a saddle sore 1000 certificate and a burner 1500.
Can t wait!

We wish you and your wife all the best! You have enough space for a bottle of antacid?

Bon voyage!

I hope you enjoy your ride, and find the experience rewarding.

I have crossed the border westward from Ontario into Michigan several times,
and I have learned that avoiding Detroit is A GOOD THING. I like crossing from
Sarnia into Port Huron via the Blue Water Bridge, and I recommend it.

I have met hassles and incompetence at the Ambassador Bridge,
and I learned that motorcycles are banned from the tunnel.

We did it! 1700 kms in total. Battle lots of wind, rain and it stayed cold all day. Hover from 2 degrees at 2 am to a high of 10 degrees
