I had already set my mind few months ago that this winter I will drive one Iron Butt
ride. First trial was set for New Years Day, 1st of January 2012. Date came but at last minute I decided to cancel the ride. Reason being mainly that weather had been so poor in southern Finland that I had no time to test my gears in real winter conditions.
Lucky me, there was already group planning an Arctic Butt Experience for February, just on time before our winter holiday.
Second good thing came in January, winter arrived finally into Finland. I was able to do few test runs in -18°C as well as few longer runs as well. Some changes to equipment also was made as a result of these test runs:
