Ride report done in that section of the forum. Sleep strategy for this ride is simple. You have to ride roughly 2000kms (1250 miles) per day. You sleep for however long you have left after you do that. Get up and do it again three more times. You have 50 hours to do each leg, so you use the extra 2 hours if you don't need it on the road for sleep after day 2 and if you are game maybe an extra hour after day 3 so you have some time up your sleeve for the ride home.Can't wait to hear about it. How fast can you ride without getting a ticket? What sleep strategy did you use?
The speed limit over here is 110kph (70mph) you are generally safe at 115kph in the States I rode through. My moving average was 105kph. These rides are not about going fast. Do that and you will just get more tired and ultimately travel slower. They are about efficiency e.g. A refuel from a jerry can takes me just over 4 minutes with helmet and gloves on. 8-10 minutes to buy fuel including paying, getting the receipt and logging the stop. When you refuel 30 times in a ride 15x say 4 minutes saved is an hour which is an extra 105 Kim's travelled. Easy. You would have to travel 20kph faster for 5 and a bit hours to make up that time by going fast. Then if you get a ticket you lose it. Also going faster means burning more fuel and needing more stops. Find the sweet spot for speed/economy on the bike and stick there.
Hope that helps.
