J&P Cycle in Iowa have their 35 year open house on June 28-29th. Free food, vendors and great pricing for your motorcycle accessories at the open house. Special guests from Sons of Anarchy also attending.
We leave at 8:00PM on June 26th and arrive in Iowa on the 27th. Please remember that this is a Saddle Sore 1000 ride or 1000 miles plus within 24 hours. This is not a ride for every one. This is a timed, individual run to qualify for the Saddle Sore 1000 certification. No time to smell the roses or taste the food at every truck stop.
I've done 5 of these, one BunBurner 1500, a Saddle Sore 2000 and a 50 CC ride(Coast to Coast in 50 hours).
Contact me for more details and remember that there is a cost with the Iron Butt Assoc. for the certification, pin and patch.
I have made a reservation at the Microtel Inn in Marion, IA 52302 for June 27 & 28. Their number is[masked]-7400. I stayed here last year and it was a good place within 15 minutes from the J&P grounds. Price is also the best around as they get much higher as you get closer to J&P and their open house date.
This ride requires the Metrowest Emergency Information Form to participate.
