I'm sure froggie is very happy with all the good wishes and encouragement to complete the task ahead of her.
I just thought that a little humor would go towards a little change from the norm.
Unfortunately Bill in your eyes it's dumb to try and take her mind off the pain she must be going through, as I'm sure you know.
Sorry Froggie if this has brought a downer on your effort. My old mum said "if you cant say anything nice dont say anything"

Bill darling feel free to pop over on that bus anytime

I just ran her stats.

She is just over 75% of the complete at 14.5 hours. She is averaging 52.3 mph with approx. 255 miles left to go. Piece of cake. She has 9.5 hours to get those miles done. (or 26 mph.)

So damn proud of her, for taking on a Goliath and kicking his ass.

Good, steady pace. The hard part is still to come but she's getting close enough now that the adrenaline will kick in before long. Then again, she may finish the ride and tell us there never was a hard part

message for Froggie
Also texted to her and posted on Facebook - covering all the bases...

There are lane closures on 95 northbound in Richmond with major delays. Just after 85 and 95 merge, take Rt. 36 east to get onto I-295. This will route you around Richmond and will bring you back onto 95 north of the city. It's only going to add 10 miles at most to the route and will keep you moving.

I'd love to see this through but it's midnight, I've driven 450 miles from near Rennes in France to home (10 miles north of Cambridge) and I'm knackered.
I'll have to catch up in the morning.

808 miles down of 1014 in 16 hours
203 remaining within the next 8 hours.

Go, Froggie, go!

Now that it's dark it's harder to miss the bad spots in the pavement. Be extra careful to keep the energy levels up.

You have all of us riding with you!

I drove 600km to bring my scooter back from the repair shop, had a nap and dinner, rode 60km on the scooter and I'm still tired. That is some endurance you have Amy.

Not to derail this thread, but in addition to Amy's personal endurance, that is some pretty incredible mechanical endurance from a single lung 250cc engine. Sustained 50 mph plus for over 1000 miles. Not bad for a simple machine.
