Well I did it, I just finished up a SaddleSore 1000 this morning. I went from home to Flagstaff AZ, Albuquerque NM, Las Cruces NM, Tucson AZ, Phoenix AZ and back home to Bagdad. 1197 miles in just under 20 hours.

Overall the ride wasn't too hard, but I see no reason to ever do that again. For me it was worth it to say I did it but I'd much rather enjoy the sceanery on my bike rides. A nice 300 or 400 miles of nice curvy mountain roads is much more enjoyable.

My Connie performed wonderfully, by end of the ride I was needing a 10 minute break every hour or so but overall it was a comfortable ride. At 6'4" I'm not really the size of person the bike was designed for.

Just finnished up my paperwork and sent it in, now for some rest and relaxation.
