North America 2013

In 2013 we headed to the US to participate in the Iron Butt rally and extended our time over there to take in some of North America’s beautiful scenery.

During the ten week trip we rode about 24,000 miles (just over 10,000 of them during the Iron Butt Rally) through 39 US states and 4 Canadian provinces. We used three sets of tyres and took 11,325 photographs plus 100GB of video.

We wouldn’t have had such a great time without the assistance and hospitality from friends both old and new; thank you all.

15 June – 24 August, 23991 Miles (yellow route is Iron Butt Rally)
