Are you allowed a planned change of bike within a cert ride? As in start of
ride is gravel/dirt road so you use a bike better suited then switch to the
interstate cruiser?
I'm guessing not, but have to ask.... Maybe that Russel seat that's on the
way will make the V-Strom as comfy as my Roadglide and it's a mute point
anyhow ;)

The only rides where one cannot switch bikes is the UCC/UCCC - you need to use the same bike for the entire ride.

There is no prohibition against changing bikes for any of the other rides, but you will need to document the switch well.  You will at least need the ending odo reading from the first bike and the starting odo reading for the second (although gas receipts would be better).  You will need to start riding the second bike at the location where you stopped riding the first bike.  And you should include a note describing the bike switch so we can figure out what is going on.

Thanks Ira, that makes sense. I'm trying to pick a extreme ride for next year.
Living here in BC I'm considering the Prudoe Bay to Key West ride. Would
seem to make sense to me if I could use my more gravel/dirt road capable
V-Strom to ride up to Prudhoe to start ride then switch bikes to the
Roadglide passing back through BC heading south.
As always, appreciate the guidance.
Clive

Isn't the Prudoe Bay to Key West ride also called the
UCC, that Ira mentioned?

The Prudoe Bay to Key West ride is, in fact, also known as the Ultimate Coast to Coast ride, or UCC.  As I mentioned earlier, it is the one ride series where one needs to use the same bike from start to finish.  So that plan won't work.
