Iron Butt Run: 1000 miles in 24 Hours or Less on a Motorcycle <---Click Title for link!

This is my first blog,so bear with me.This blog is to invite all of you to an event.
So,a little bit about myself.My name is Rory Anderson,I have a soul sucking job as a semi truck driver.I love the Outer Banks of North Carolina,motorcycling,fishing,shooting,TV,Movies,booksoutdoors,camping,and making YouTube videos.I make videos on a variety of subjects from trucking to motorcycling,to...ummmm...finding a possum in my garbage can.There is even a video showcasing the correlation between McRibs and zombies.
   I will be attempting an Iron Butt Run on May 27 2011 and I am inviting all of you to follow along.The video linked to this blog has all the information.Please share with your friends,realtives,husbands and wives,and if you really want to piss them off, your enemies. :o)
   I have a been wanting to try an IronButt Run for 2 years now.My route will take me from the WaWa on Lancaster Ave and Museum Rd in Reading,PA,through Richmond VA.My turnaround point will be Red drum tackle Shop in Buxton NC.Then up over the Chesapeake bay Bridge Tunnel through Easton MD,Lewes DE,King of Prussia PA and back to my starting point in Reading PA.The route link is on the Event Facebook page linked in the description box of the video.You will be able to follow me through Twitter and Facebook,with my  updates and photos.I will also have the GPS locator link so you can follow along or check back and see my progress.(All of these links are on the YouTube video in this blog.) I will be riding a 2003 Honda Shadow 1100cc motorcycle which I have owned since 2008.
   I have put many miles on two wheels and have done long distance riding,but never officially.I don't think I've done 1000 in 24,but I have come close,possibly around 800 or 900 miles.
   I truly enjoy riding a motorcycle and highly recommend it to everyone.I also, of course recommend,highly visiting Hatteras island,NC.So please watch the video,subscribe,rate,comment.Follow my Twitter,like my Facebook page,attend the event.Follow along and enjoy!

  1. Rory, I did a SS1K and a BB1.5K on a Shadow ACE. With a range of only about 120 miles, you'll spend a lot of time (almost 2 hours) at fuel stops. Plan accordingly. You plan to ride at night. Make yourself uber-visible. Scotch-lite tape on you, your bike, helmet. Other than that, follow the tips on the IBA site. Stay hydrated, stay alert, and have fun.
