Just to do a bit of a riding exercise I decided to do a quick SS1000 Iron Butt ride before our trip to Spain in July.

Together with me was Juha S. with his new Triumph Rocket III Classic.

We started from Mikkelä Esso at 18:25 on 27th of July 2008 which was first evening start for me. Always before this we have started either early morning or morning, so this was also an interesting exercise how it would go.

I had planned an quick route from Espoo through Kuusamo and Oulu back to Espoo and we started riding accordingly.

Here's our stops and kilometers driven according to my bike:

Just get some how to drive my bike again, I will conduct a SS1000 drive on Friday 27th of June. Start is from Esso Espoo/Mikkelä, then fastest route to Kuusamo, Oulu and back To Espoo.

All this should be driven in ~19-20 hours.

Here's a map of the planned route:


Microsoft AutoRoute shows this to be ~1690 kilometers which easily should qualify SS1000 ride which would then be my sixth ride!
