Last year Kevin Beretta and I did a Saddle Sore 1000, an Iron Butt Association sanctioned ride of 1000 miles in 24 hours. (See saddlesore1000) It was fun, sort of, and an interesting challenge, so this year we decided to ratchet things up a notch and do a Bun Burner Gold, or 1500 miles in 24 hours. Also, instead of riding a more or less circular route, as we had done on the Saddle Sore, we decided to incorporate the BBG into a longer ride of several days. We spent some time discussing the route, and eventually decided to ride east out of Everett on I-90 and I-94 until we reached 1500 miles or so, then turn north and return through Canada via Highway 1, where neither of us had ridden before. It turned out to be an interesting trip.
