good luck!

i hope you have arranged for two independent witnesses to wait at each way point
(assuming you want the actual iron butt certificate)

Sounds like a good thing to have done and be able to laugh about afterwards!
I'm sure you'll enjoy it, drop in if you're passing (notice would be good) and I'll make sure you set off the next day with a suitably heinous hangover which is always conducive to riding long distances  Twisted Evil

Having looked at the guidelines it seems you'll not have time to stop for long anywhere, also- are you sure you can qualify for this?
It mentions having taken part in a previous ride first as being a necessary thing.

Good luck!

You'll be on the M4 past Newport twice on that route.
Let me know if you're stopping off in that area for a rest / refreshment and I'll come out for a chat.

haha I have a bum of very soft metal like mercury, that or this seat sucks.
did only the first leg but took ages due to about a thousand bum rest stops.

got to lands end from lowestoft then hit back roads for notts after a night in a layby like some kind of tramp

the seat I got off Essox's mate (poor bloke I can never remember his name) is loads better than the one that came with the bike but no good beyond 100ish miles without giving it 20 mins to recover.

you can actually see the foam all squashed and the cover baggy. over time it reforms back to shape and the cover fits again.

so I might get on with a custom seat.

I should get a patch for the pain I endured.

I did 2 corners so maybe half a patch
