Hey St.n folks - On Wednesday the 24th, I'm setting out on a ride from Denver, Colorado to Gerlach, Nevada, and will be attempting to ride the "Endo-1800". This ride is an 1800+ mile in 24 hour ride to raise money for a friend of many of us in riding community going through some tough times. Please visit the following site for more info, and to make a donation to sponsor the ride. Every little bit helps. Thanks in advance!

More info on Mitch's (Endo on the Forum) mishap can be found here: https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,97906.0.html#.VCDjT_hx1u4

About 3 hours to go time - getting a little nervous Lol. Over $500 in donations at this point, so a win on that part. Now I just need to pull off my end of the deal.

is there a ride report forthcoming, or did I miss it somewhere?

Justin finished his ride (which was successful to the tune of over $1300 IIRC) and then spent the weekend in Gerlach, NV with another day ride to visit Mitch as well as enjoy in frivolity near the playa.  He only made it back Sunday evening (he had to unwind all those miles he did) last night and was danged exhausted like the 50 or so other people partying in Nevada.  I'm sure he'll be along to report more.

Successful to the tune of $1520! A huge thanks to everyone who donated, this last minute ride idea turned out to be way beyond my expectations. Mitch is doing remarkably well for having killed two pigs with his Kawi. He's in great spirits, has a great support group around him, and has the attitude and drive to kick this in the ass and recover as quickly as possible. He's able to get up with the walker for short times (with help), and get to the shower etc. He'll be able to start putting weight on his hip and femur in about 6 weeks now and will start physical therapy.

A small group took a ride down from Gerlach NV on Saturday morning to visit him:



Oh, and yes, I did pull off my end of the deal and finished the ride. 18XX miles, with 19 minutes to spare. It was a tough one, but well worth it. Not much of a ride report to be had there, it was just a lot of sit there and twist that.

Wow - 1800 miles in 24 hours.   EEK!  I've done a number of 1200 - 1300 mile days in the rain and horrific weather.  I know if the weather had cooperated I could have pushed to do 1500 but to do 1800 in one sitting is pretty damn herculean.  Good on you for making a fundraiser out of it for a fallen rider.  I wish your friend a speedy recovery.
