    July 10, 2021 IBA Pre-Approved Rides

    Rich Henrion from Norway, Michigan and I are planning several IBA ( Iron But Association ) SS1K rides starting on July 10, 2021 in Wakefield, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

    3 rides will be offered, if the Canadian border is open by them, if not then only 2.

    The first will be an All Yooperland  SS1K - 1,000 miles done in less than 24 hours, all done in the U.P.  What could be more fun than that ?  This will be the 4th year in a row an All Yooperland ride will be organized.  Last year we had 17 Riders and 3 Pillions complete the ride.  One young lady on a H-D earned her IBA number while 6 months pregnant !!   And 2 teenage daughters earned their IBA number riding pillion with their Dad.

    The second ride will be an Alternative SS1K being done in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

    The third ride will be a Lake Superior SS1K, if the border is re-opened by then.

    And perhaps another Alternative SS1K, if the border is open,  done in the U.P. and Ontario.

    These rides are not "big group rides".  We will have a dinner on Friday for those that can work that into their schedule and often Riders will form small groups at that time or Saturday morning before the rides begin.  So Riders do the rides in small groups, solo, or may join a group when meeting at gas stops, or other places along their route, etc.

    Riders will be required to collect mandatory receipts to prove their route and for the All Yooperland SS1K, take pics with a digital camera and submit the pics and receipts after the ride.  I will verify you did more than 1K miles in less than 24 hours and submit your "paperwork" to the IBA.  You do the ride, and I'll handle the paperwork.  After sending the required fee to the IBA,  you will receive your IBA number ( if a Newbie ) and IBA Certificate from the IBA.

    I'll be posting more info of these rides on the IBA Calendar in a few months. In the mean time, mark you calendar for the weekend of July 10th.  I'll post here again when the rides are on the IBA Calendar.

    Rich Henrion has made a deal with the ski lodge just outside Wakefield for rooms - approx. $80 a night for a double bed room.  And if you book 2 nights, I understand the third night is free.

    My recommendation is to do at least one IBA ride to determine if you are a carrier the "Defective LD Riding Gene".  IBA Riders know what I'm talking about - ask one , if you know one.  We get all types of Riders on these IBA rides, and all makes and models of bikes.  We always get a great group of Riders.  But only have had 1 TTSE Rider so far.  I'd like to see more.

    Please contact me if you have any questions.

    Here are pics of the All Yooperland SS1K route and the Alternative SS1K route for July10, 2021.

    The Ontario Alternative SS1K ride and the Lake Superior SS1K will be run if the border is re-opened.

    Thanks, Hackle.

    I''m hoping the border will be open by July.  The Ontario Alternative ride includes a very interesting stretch between Thessalon & Chapleau.  The "twisties" go left & right and up & down at the same time in places.  In general, northern Ontario is beautiful country with some great roads for MC riding, including the stretch along Lake Superior south of Wawa.  But you gotta look out for bears & moose, besides deer.

    EDIT :  Scratch the ride done in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.   I replaced it with a ride done all in Wisconsin.  i think it's a much better route.

    Play the mother duck for all your newbies. Hoping all goes to plan.
      I have a FarRide to do to the Cooyar Hotel, Queensland on Saturday 6 th. March. Total distance from home [Trafalgar, Victoria] is about 1,800 kilometres. I'll leave at 3.45am. Friday morning and do a SS1600 to Warwick in Queensland then on Saturday morning finish of the ride to Cooyar completing the FarRide.
      After a meet up with fellow attendees I'll retrace my route home. Should be home Sunday night for evening dinner.
      Then the following Saturday [13th.] I have another FarRide to Bermagui, south coast of New South Wales. It'll be an up and back on the day [1,083 kms. total]. Our FarRides are either 1,000 or 1,200 kilometres in the 24 hour time frame.
      Stay safe.  :821: :158:

    Have fun & good luck.

    Just curious :

    What type of roads will you be mostly on and what are the speed limits ?

    What animals do you have to be worried about meeting up with, especially at night ?

    I also made a change in the route for the All Yooperland SS1K - see the new route below below.

    Also, you can go to the IBA Calendar to get links to the ride webpages.
