Well it's about 4AM EST. I just checked in and see that he is near Davenport Iowa. He must be around the 1,000 mile mark or better by now. It's definetly more than 1,000 miles from his home. He had to ride a good ways just to get to the starting point of Rye NY! Go Brian, Go!   :thumbs:

I just checked in on him again. He looks to be in the area north of Omaha. He's headed more north now. I look again in a little bit if I can find time.
 { It seems he did have to back track right after getting his beach water in Rye yes at the very start! ...the atm wouldn't spit out a receipt, so he had to go find a gas station.  Then a crazy women was flying by him and prevented him from making his exit, but he thought that back-tracking a little was the safer bet! }
 By the time he got to Illinois, he had is average speed up to about 68MPH. And that was just before 10 last night.  I don't know the exact time of the start. But from the info I have, I think the official start was approximately Monday, noon time EST! After the first 10 hours on the road he reported that he felt great. I don't have an update this morning though.   ;)

I plugged in his route from the water grab till about now and have him at about 1300 miles, give or take.  He will have a bun burner gold in his pocket pretty easily by noon.  I hope he grabs a power nap after that. I am in MN and we are expecting near 100 degrees today. Not sure what South Dak is supposed to be, but she could be a hot one!

I've had his SPOT map up on the computer since yesterday. Cool to watch (in ultra-ultra slo-motion), especially since I know a lot of the route. You go, Brian!

It's been fun to watch Brian go.  From what I can see, he's at about the 24 hour mark since leaveing Rye NY and it appears he's at about the halfway point.   I think if he can keep up the pace, he should be good to make it.

Ride Safe, Brian!!

Yeah, I just checked in and see him west of Sioux Falls on I-90, near Mitchell. But according to the Spot device. He's still riding this whole ride going backwards. I always told him his thinking is azz backwards!  :))

He is averaging 63.5 MPH.  He is doing really well.....
If he can maintain his current pace he should make it in roughly 46 hours!

If you look at the image closely, it's ONLY the rider that's backwards. The scarf (silk, of course) is streaming behind the bike.

I don't agree. Everything is backwards except for the scarf (the just happens to be silk)!  :D

Well he's just about out of the Buffalo Gap National Grassland and will be hitting the Black Hills National Forest next.

 I hear that somewhere in the black mining hills of Dakota, there lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon. And one day his woman ran off with another guy. Hit young Rocky in the eye. Rocky didn't like that, he said I'm gonna get that boy! So the story goes!   ::)

Almost to Wyoming...
Gotta give him credit, even if he does make it within the allotted time, it's still one hell of ride.
I'll take my long days in ten hour increments, thank you.
