    2017 IBR. The BIG one

    Some of our fellow riders are in the "BIG ONE" this year.

    Are you guys ready?
    Can we get some spot tracker info to follow along?

    I would expect anyone in the western part of Ohio or eastern Indiana or southern Michigan to give me a shout if you need me. Heck anywhere really!

    For the last 5 IBR 's I've intently watched the daily updates and spot maps on IBR website.

    For those that haven't seen this. Get on board.

    This is the baddest Dudes on motorcycles !

    I'm pretty much like you, follow it daily. The only thing with me is its a glass ceiling, I can look but never go to that level.

    The riders will start Monday morning 26th. The IBR won't officially publish info till then. For good reason. I'm sure a few will let us know some details before then. The start and finish is in Mn.

    With the headquarters in MN this year, I'm hoping to watch the start and finish.

    2017 Iron Butt Rally

    Exciting times ahead beginning June 26 at 10:00am, CDT.

    First, in answer to the question about getting SPOT Tracker info from participants - not generally available.
    Why? One: if a rider's SPOT data becomes public during the rally, it's ground for disqualification. Two: public knowledge could lead to bonus locations being blocked by spectators or riders hampered in other ways. If you have a personal friend who's riding, maybe they'll share their SPOT info with you after your "cross my heart and hope to die" promise not to leak it. When I rode, I gave my SPOT data to my wife and my emergency contact. That was it.

    Second. Want to follow along. I'm not sure who the IBA commentator is this year, but beginning on June 26th there will be daily reports that are usually interesting and somewhat humorous. Note that the commentator doesn't usually know any more about the bonus locations than we do, but . . . they will be a member of the crew running "the show" and in the middle of what's going on. Past IBR commentaries are fascinating. Here's where to look starting Friday, June 26th.

    Third. Here's the schedule and locations.
    IBR Rally locations

    Start/Finish Hotel Info:


    You can check for a reservation at the Marriott, but currently
    the host hotel is sold out Friday and Saturday of start weekend
    but there is a good alternative. The La Quinta Inn, just a short walk from the Marriott, has
    offered us a great rate of $99 for a King. It is a very short three-minute
    walk, only a tenth of a mile. Breakfast and internet are included so no need
    to fret here, it's all good!!


    Same probably holds true for the finish.


    La Quinta Inn & Suites Minneapolis-Minnetonka
    10420 Wayzata Blvd
    Minnetonka, MN 55305
    952.541.1094




    As you all know, the Iron Butt Rally is always exciting and, if the past is
    any indication, I'm sure we'll have a lot of spectators at the start and finish.
    The start is awesome, 100 or so riders all out of the parking lot in under 5 minutes.
    Itís also great to welcome riders as they arrive at checkpoints and the finish . . . just
    stay out of the way!



    I hope this is helpful,

    FWIW, I'm going to show up at the Allen, TX checkpoints on Thursday and Saturday evenings to watch the guys roll in. Kendoo, one of the regulars on here, is participating.

    Too much white... I'm working on it!
