JP Honeywell has done it. Think he is the only one to do it on an XS or XJ though.

I am going to do the SaddleSore 1000 in a few months on my XS.
Several of the IB rides can be done on your own or with buddies in your area, SaddleSore 1000, Butburner 1500 and many others.

Ride safe.

Yeah, I did a BunBurner Gold. 1500/24

There was a guy around Houston who did a SaddleSore on an XS850 and I know he wanted to do one on his XS11 but I can't remember if he did it. Steve Gano.

I'd better look it up on the Ironbutt site

JP Honeywell Vernon Hills, IL 08/09/97 79 Yamaha XS-11 1,545

Brent Hoovestol Buford, GA 03/05/02 Yamaha XS1100SG 1,020

Seppo Ronkko Vierema, FINLAND 07/20/01 Yamaha XS-11 1,005

Steve Smith Jacksonville, NC 04/12/01 Yamaha XS1100 Spec 1,054

Hosrt Unger Cascade Classic 08/07/99 Yamaha XS11 1,020

Michael Robinson Langhorne, PA 10/04/98 Yamaha XS1100 1,013

Stephen M. Gano Houston, TX 02/14/98 Yamaha XS850 1,458

Stephen M. Gano Houston, TX 02/15/98 Yamaha XS850 1,532
(I think that was for a Saddlesore and a Bun Burner on the same trip - he missed the BBG so he filed for the two lesser awards)

So it appears I might have been the first documented IBA XS11 rider and the only BBG rider.

For a while I held the title of oldest BBG bike but that was snatched from me:

Oldest Bun Burner Gold motorcycle: Joe Glowacki 08/29/01 1977 BMW R80/7
Second oldest: Andrew Higgins 09/12/01 1978 Honda GL1000

What was the question again?

Oh yeah. You can do an IBA ride from anywhere to anywhere - as long as you have the miles - and documentation.

Those long rides in a short time are a part of our sport that I've never done. I guess you'd have to prepare and work up to it. I guess you'd have to be tough as nails too. Congratulations to those who do it.
