Long Distance riding is at the core of what makes Moonshine, well, Moonshine.  Curt Gran, Member of the Moonshine Board of Regents wanted to offer something in the spirit of Moonshine for riders who like doing the miles, above and beyond the "Miles from Home" awards, for which many live too close to ever qualify.  Curt developed the Moonshine Lunch Run SaddleSore 1000 where riders earned a special SaddleSore 1000 certificate from the Iron Butt Association on the way to Moonshine.

Unfortunately Curt was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2012. Rick Martin, Moonshine Board of Regent Member, has agreed to carry on Curt's Creation and will serve as Moonshine SS1k Coordinator. The ride name has been changed to the Moonshine Curt Gran Memorial SS1000 in honor of our friend.

Read the Ride Requirements to find out how to register for the ride and take part in a little bit of history. We're offering the easiest way for riders to obtain their official Iron Butt Association SaddleSore 1000 certificate by riding 1000 miles in 24 hours to Moonshine with a minimal amount of paperwork.

Riders will just need to complete the ride according to the requirements and, upon approval, will receive their certificate right there on the spot.
