Leaving first thing in the morning to do an IBA warm-up.
NW Alabama through Mississippi to Memphis, TN. to Arkansas then Steele, MO. and loop around. Should be 700 to 800 miles.
I have a room in Tunica, MS if I get to Missouri and decide to Bail. I think I can do this in 15 hours. We shall see:)

Good luck. I tried to do an IBA run, but the weather changed on me and I was only able to do 700 miles in 11 hours. :(

700 in 11 hours is solid. Obviously my main challenge will be dealing with the heat and traffic.
I am planning to do the IBA with Ralphumor in July. Just don't want to go in without practice.

My challenge wasn't heat, it was snow! It was my first real ride of the year and wasn't planned!

I am thinking about doing the same thing. I figured I would start out as if I was going to do the SS1000, that way if I get to the halfway point, and am still feeling good, I could keep going. Good Luck on your practice run!

Guys I am leaving Painter, Alabama right now to do my route. I have built in enough mileage to do 1000. I will do a system check at 750 miles. Hopefully I will check in when I get back.

You abuse I-20? If so I'll bet you weren't happy about the construction near Forest...

Only Interstate I saw from Arkansas to Home was a brief run on 55. Probably not my best idea
