I haven't done an official SS1000, but I did an unofficial one, unplanned and undocumented. I was in northern Minnesota and had to work until about 2 in the afternoon. I planned to ride about halfway home to Ohio and stop for the night, but it was a summer weekend and I waited too late in the evening to stop, so every hotel I stopped at was booked up. After several fruitless stops and a lot of wasted time, I just said "screw it!" and kept on riding. I got home about 9 a.m. the next day, a little over a thousand miles, but since I didn't document it it didn't really happen, right?
By the way, this was quite a few years ago and was before the Versys even existed.
As for advice, the resident expert here is Lonerockz, who doesn't even get the Versys out of the garage for anything under a 500-mile day.
Whitehorse Press is going out of business so it's time for a final sale. Signed copies of my book are now $10 with free shipping in the U.S. while they last.
