50CC ride attempt

https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php...=0&showAll=yes

The above will be (hopefully) my track. I'll be leaving in an hour or so to head to San Diego for the day, and then around midnight Friday night I'll set my sights on Jacksonville FL with the plan to be there in under 48 hours.

This will be my third attempt, so hopefully 3's a charm.

This is an IBA certification ride, not a 50cc motorcycle ride. http://www.ironbutt.com/themerides/50cc2/

Wow! Enjoy your ride. It is quite an accomplishment. Junction, Texas seems to be a popular spot to sleep for a few hours during the cc ride.

Re: 50CC ride attempt

Ride safe!

I'll break from tradition here and say "Don't Post Pictures" as it will just eat up time. Well, maybe one to start and the finish one.

Re: 50CC ride attempt

Care to post your route and estimated times to marks? Swinging through Texas? Maybe some of us could wave as you go by!

Re: 50CC ride attempt

Does this mean on a 50cc bike?

No, it's the IBA 50CC, Coast to Coast in 50 hours or less.

The link in my first post will let you see where I am with a 10-20 min lag time.

Leaving SD tonight at 0000 PST and hope to be in a hotel in Beaumont by 0200 Sunday.

It was mainly in the 100s riding from PHX to SD through the desert last night and today's highs along the same route will be 110-115 so even at 3 am it's still going to be quite warm which really sucks the "I wanna ride" spirit out of you.

Re: 50CC ride attempt

There isn't any free time on a 50 CC. You're either riding, fueling/eating, peeing or sleeping.

Good luck and maintain concentration. I don't have to tell you this but just did

Much confusion on "50cc", better it "CC50", AS IN COAST TO COAST IN 50.

If i were king
