I'd say it's a bad idea. After the MS150 from Houston to Austin I was glad my wife picked me up in Austin and I could just sit in the car. I definitely did not want to be on any saddle.
Also the fact that I-10 is mostly straight and boring adds to the danger as it's even tiresome just driving from SA to Houston in a cage.

However! If he wants to do it no matter what .. well .. there's nothing you can do because of the "no matter what".

i-10 and other long straight roads are mind numbing, boring rides to start with, then adding in a 150 miles bike ride before hand to me is just stupid. I would not want to make that ride without a day of rest, but even then the guy sounds way over confident.

That better be in good shape. His legs, and lower back are gonna be sore.
As far as being safe and able to ride like that right away...I say it's doable. It's not like he's gonna be hitting up twisties or taking on a trackday rightaway.
But for the record, I took MSF, got M endorsement, then spent a month riding about 500 miles just in my neighborhood before ever heading out to the real streets.

Some people need to learn the hard way.

I hope he does give in to reason and doesn't ride over there, but if he does, and gets exhausted and have to wait, losing a day of work etc, I'd rub it into his face.

Stubborness is a relentless fight most dont have the patience to come out victorious over.

seat time is great from a reletively noob standpoint he will be very tired. I contribute fatigue to me dropping my 250 after 140 miles of riding and not having the strength to "save" my bike from going down. He might want to get a few more shorter rides in and not try to combine events as he will be dog tired for his trip home. I say throw all the bikes in a truck or trailer and that will ease his fatigue. Then he can ride some of the nice twisties and still have the energy to follow through with his other plans.

I think he's gonna be exhausted from the MS150....other than that it's a judgement call. I know that right after I got the ninjette I was ready to go anywhere

True but he will also not be used to being pushed around (Wind) on the little bike. Some of those semi's roll the F* out on I-10. That coupled with exhaustion could be bad... then again... Parts for the other 250 owners..

that's a terrible idea! after the MS150??? is this fool crazy? has he ever participated in the MS150? IMHO, he should really drive his car or have someone drive him back - the bike is not a good idea no matter what his level of experience on a motorcycle.

+1

MS150 is intense. All you want to do after is rest, muchless get on a bike to ride home. Hopefully the instructors at Awesome Cycles can talk some sense into him, advice from the experts.
