In Part II of our series encouraging people to leave town and go touring on our motorcycle, we invited the best long distance tourer in America. 1000 mile days are likely not your goal. A 250 mile day can be perfect with a little planning. Jim Owen just completed the 2017 Iron Butt Rally with his second win. This is an amazing acomplishment. anyone who has ever had a 1,000 mile day knows what a challenge it can be. When you are required to string 11 days of 1,000 per day together to win the IBR it requires drastic measures that are each very well planned. Jim takes a systematic approach to the Iron Butt. We take his systematic approach and break it down to help us all learn how to truly enjoy motorcycle touring solo or two up. The information from last weeks show in Part I with Carl Reese, Deana Mastracci and Norm Nelson combined with the valuable information we get from Jim Owen may produced the most comprehensive guide to fun touring ever.
