This is my IBA rides configuration, the tupperware is for almonds, cashews, and pistachios. Motojug on right passenger floorboard except for in extreme heat, then its on the pillion in an insulated backpack cooler. On the windshield are reminders, notes, radio stations for different cities etc. I usually have painters tape on the fuel door to keep count of stops, saves me from looking at past receipts for the stop #. I wear a large "fanny pack" for my glasses (sun / regular glasses, wallet, and now due to covid extra rubber gloves for gas pump handles.

how many IBA rides Mark
I think 34, past 2 years kinda sucked. Only did 2 last summer. Started end of June 2017, waited to do another until that one was approved, wanted to make sure I was following the program correctly. Now I just get up, toss a leg over the bike and roll out, often I'm not even sure which route I'm going to take until I'm on the road, for the 1Ks that is, for the BBGs and higher I stick to my specific routes for those rides. My plan last summer was a SS3KG and SS4KG, but my plans went down the drain. So this year I hope to bag those rides. I've done all of them alone so far, not sure how I would like another rider along. I bought a Firecreek Aux Tank last fall for my Wing, should make the longer SS and BBGs easier to manage.

i have an aux tank on my ST 1300. i hardly ever use it for extra range i use it when my next station is closed and i need the extra gas to get me to the next gas station. that way i never have two empty tanks

Smart use of the aux tank. I wanted to decrease the number of fuel stops primarily for the longer rides. Saddle Sores have so much time baked in stopping really has no effect on the outcome.

i've done quite a few 285 mile fuel stops but those mostly run out the main tank and i for sure wanted to get out of the saddle

If Honda still made the ST, as the old ST, I wouldn't be on a Wing either, or maybe I'd have both. (I'm a bike junkie)
i still have my '93 1500 wing but i don't ride it often and not at all last year
