Mark, sounds like nice day of riding.
If you are planning on 1500 miles in 36 hrs, most don’t do the twisties, it more consistently moving in straight line😀
Sept 21, there is SS 1000 starting in Memphis. Online it’s called “The Memphis Loop” so I guess it has been done more than once. You can go clockwise or counterclockwise Memphis-Nashville-Chattanooga-Birmingham-Laurel, MS-Brookhaven-Memphis. Starts at Waffle House you get dated Business receipt, get picture eating egg dish w their flag at 5 am. I think there are 5 stops for fuel and you take DBR/odometer picture and send to the guy who starts you as witness back at the Waffle House. Once back at Memphis Waffle House you present all to witness and your paperwork supposedly is fast tracked thru IBA process
You get SS 1000 Gold if stop at 4 restaurants, order egg dish, get picture of you/egg dish/# flag provided at start. “ Eggsanity” Ride.
That would be smidge over a CAT ride for you.
