Now, friends that was quality entertainment. I am just flat filled with awe and respect!  Sounds odd and it's not meant to be, 'cause this group absolutely understands the context, but you GOTTA wonder how the a** feels. I hope he doesn't have a meeting to sit tomorrow.

I cannot wait for the ride report and the preparation recap.

Brian, you have my utmost respect. You are a MAN!!!  Thank you for two days of living vacariously like I haven't since the moon landing. Wow.! :hail: :hail: :hail:

+ 1,000,000  :chugbeer:  What RonDawg said sums it up perfectly, Congrats!!!  You are da man and I never had a doubt...it's like I said, "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity" opportunity knocked and Brian answered.   :hail:  :hail:  :hail:  My A$$ hurts just thinking about trying this.   :yikes:

Just wanted to add my congrats as well.  I hope one day to ride coast to coast, but in honesty, I don't want to try in under 50 hours.   My hat's off to you sir!  Bravo Zulu (well done)!!

Just got logged into the forum. Am in Tacoma at the moment, and all is well. Not going to post much (logic functions not working well) but did want to check in. Finished in just over 48 HRS and I <believe> all is in order other than the final witness form, which I will have filled out tomorrow.

I will post more later. Thanks for the support folks.

So do they have a organization for chrome steel butt? Yow! That's hard core. Congrats and my hats off to you.

Oh and BTW, what kind of seat do you have on your bike?

He may need to put one of these on top of the Airhawk after this.
