Talking Iron Butt Saddle Sore

I am thinking about doing the Iron Butt Saddle Sore this summer. I was wondering if anyone had any tips about witnesses along the trip or any words of wisodm not on the Iron Butt website. I am going to get the RKA 47 liter saddlebags and the 23 Liter magnetic tank bag for luggage.

Thumbs up

There are some guys I know that have ridden that a few times. I think you just need somebody at the start and at the end of the run. Then keep your gas receipts and make sure there date and time stamped. I have a set of those RKA bags that I bought for my VFR that have been used once that I'll let you have for $200 delivered. Let me know.

So, did you go on the trip? Time is getting short if you haven't.
