At 5 a.m. Friday, Rob Keller and Mike Wamboldt will start their four-state-long ride across North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.
The two of them want to travel 1500 miles in 36 hours with ten 15 minute stops along the way.
Both Wamboldt and Keller belong to the Iron Butt Association which dedicates itself to long-distance motorcycle enthusiasts.
Keller and Wamboldt have named their trip!
The first 1000 miles are called the Saddlesore, and the last 500 miles are called the Bun Burner.
Although riding for such a long time might sound like work to you, Keller and Wamboldt say it’s just for fun and they can’t wait to hit the road, while also being excited about the sights of the fall season along the way.
“You know seeing the fauna, smelling the fauna of the cut alfalfa and the harvesting. You know there is a thousand different reasons why people ride and it’s all different for each person,” says Rob Keller.
Keller and Wamboldt plan to be back in Bismarck at 3:41 p.m. on Saturday.
