Iron Butt

I have about 2K on the clock and am headed off for a Bun Burner (1500) mile Saturday. I have fresh oil in, tires look good and right PSI, fluids look OK. Any other V2 specific checks or suggestions before I leave?

Chain lube and tension. Water and snacks. Have fun!

A throttle lock sure helps.

I did the SaddleSore 1000 on the V2 last year, and although the seat worked well for me, I'm glad I had my rain seat - a cannibalized "cabbie" bead seat that attaches with bungies. After 700 miles, it literally saved my ass.

My legs got a little stiff also, so for this year's 48 Plus!, I rigged up some highway pegs which should make a difference.

Other than that, bring a good selection of music and don't forget the rain gear and chain lube.

Good luck and let us know how it went for you.

Yousa, have fun. I've done 1375 in 22 hours and only to get home.
Hope you get the paper to hang on the wall!
