You may recall, when we did our Iron Butt ride, we were tank to tank with 10 minute stops for power bar. Same with my Crownfire trips, I like to start out and eat a nice meal and have a cold beer, once we've reached the final destination.

Cool

As a true CAT rider I stop and have something to eat and drink. I like to stop at about the 100 mile mark.

When all else fails.......... use a hammer!

While on a nice long trip does your appetite seem to go away? :
NO! ABSOLUTELY NOT! I'm always hungry and can't wait to stop for breakfast, lunch or supper. My favorite times of day.

Yes sir I recall. That was 3 years ago and it seems like yesterday. Thanks for all the input. I never thought about the bored angle but that makes a ton of sense. I liked the article as well. Ride safe
