Ken Phenix Bun Burner Gold

Ken Phenix, the swiss army knife of 919 riders just departed on his second attempt at a Bun Burner Gold (1500 miles in 24 hours). His planned route is Beaumont TX to Ft Collins CO via Los Cruces NM.



I told him I would keep WT updated on his progress.

You can follow his progress at:

Ken's Spotwalla

Go Ken Go!!!.....and ride safe.

Thanks Mike. I was ahead of schedule about 250 miles into the ride when the front tire started shaking and getting progressively worse. I had to call it a night

Damn that sucks Ken. Hope it's nothing serious with the bike. Maybe just tire balance?

That sucks. I feel your pain. I was 900 miles into my 1000 mile iron butt ride on my CBR and my speedo/odometer crapped out. I had to finish the ride to get home but never got the cert. The good news is you can try again

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

Yep, mounted the day before the ride. I know to test any new additions or mods for at least a few days before a trip but there wasn't time this time. I will not make that mistake again.
