I wonder when Brian will cross the intersection of I-80 and I-39 in Illinois, that's less than an hour south of me. Hmmm...

Brian is now 53 miles from Cleveland, just getting ready for a fuel stop. He was caught in rain for about an hour, but got his gear on in time, so didn't get wet at all and now it's sunny and beautiful.

He's avg'd 64.6 miles overall, with a moving avg of 67.7....  He’s in a construction zone right now, and still able to keep up a decent speed...traffic's very thin.....so that's excellent! If he can do that the whole time he's got it knocked!    :)

There was a dual sport 2 up from NY, that stayed with him for quite a long time...don't know if it was anyone that knows him or not....but they broke off when he got on rte 80....

He’s feeling great...and all is well!

Welcome Andrea and thanks for the updates, the PNW will take care of Brian when he get's here!  :chugbeer:
 
Better a dead dear than a...... rodent!  :o  (Did Kirby get packed for the trip?)  ;D

I'm wearing out my computer clicking on this thread.  Thanks for the updates, and be safe!  I'll bet he could do this in 30 hours if he were not on a four-wheeler, riding backwards.

sorry...but no Kirby...that darn tail of his takes up a lot of room and the little guy just won't tuck it in, so he had to stay back  :(

so should we assume 1000 of those hits are yours and quite possibly the rest are mine???

I've got a few in there.   I just left the site on overnight, less clicking.   

Ride safe Brian.

Good mornin all!....
He's still going strong, he sailed through Chicago this time, never slowing down at all.  He has passed a fair amount of construction and wasted time looking for fuel at the last stop, since 2 stations were closed.  Otherwise, uneventful and all is well!

He's still has an overall ave speed of 63 and a moving of 67....though mileage has dropped down to 40.7.

It's comforting & great fun knowing I'm not the only one glued to the screen watching, thanks!

He's closing in on the 1/2 point!!!!

1350 miles so far....it's just under 70 degrees & nice...though he did get rained on some earlier this morning. Wasn't feeling so hot earlier...stopped ate & had a coffee...feels great once again....

He's got just under 100 miles till he reaches I90

Avg speed is down to 62.4.....  That should pick up, once on I90 speed limit will go from 55 to 75.... However, that's also where he picks up all the wind!!  :'(
