  • The 100000 Mile Year

    From an alternate reality...

    A year of 50,000 or more miles is dedication, then there's Tony.

    IBA member Anthony Osborne is half-way thru 100,000 miles *in a single calendar year* He's documenting much of the ride via FB and on the IBA's forum.

    He's presently in the middle of a BBG "Deca" event - ten consecutive days of 1500+ miles daily. His goal this month (July) will be to accomplish "The Longest Month" - 31 days, 31,000 miles.

    On an FJR. With over 120,000 miles on the clock at the beginning of the year. While working full-time. At the end of May (YTD) 28 BBGs 42,769 Cert. Miles

    When he succeeds, he will be one of 18 that have done this year of riding per IBA standards.

        Tony continues the 100,000 mile year, but was not able to go beyond day 6 of the BBG "Deca" event due to mechanical issues.

              Apparently he was able to get 31000+ miles, according to another forum that passed along the info.
