So, move your dam ned controls so the good wrist does the work. If **** Doohan can race and win with a crap body, you can ride too.
Well, I've explained how I can do it without speeding. Short stops. I'd still need to stay in the saddle for 23 plus hours. Is that sleep deprivation? You might think so, but I'm not in bad shape when a 24 hour ride is done. The key to these things is to set your body up to stay awake - it's partly training in LD riding, and partly setting yourself up physically. I wean myself off coffee (and caffeine in general) a few weeks before a ride. If I didn't cut out caffeine, I'd tend to get less focused in the afternoon, and I'd start to fall asleep at 10-11 PM. Guys who do multi-day rides try to avoid any caffeine at all, but because I do only the one-day rides, I'll treat myself to a coke around 11. Peps me right up, and I'm generally fine for the rest of the ride. Also, experience (which is training) helps. I'm definitely better at this now than I was when I started!Lets take the Bun Burner Gold. 1500 miles in 24 hours. That averages out to 62.5 mph for the entire 24 hours. So tell me again how there is no speeding and no sleep deprivation. The funny part is some of the Iron Butt guys do this more than one day in a row. Like my old Chief used to say, I might be dumb, but I'm not stupid.
I don't deny that sleep deprivation exists or that it has effects. It can, however, be forestalled if you know what you're doing."Same with "sleep deprivation." Where's the danger if you're alert? You don't need eight hours of sleep at your regular time to stay awake and alert, particularly on a 24 hour ride."
I fugured you would say that. Taken from Wiki:

Your words, my truth.
