The SaddleSore Series  and Bun Burner Series consist of several rides.  Each ride involves a distance challenge and a time challenge.  There are no intermediate time or distance requirements (except as noted below).  You may, however, create additional challenges for yourself if you want to increase the number of certificates for which you may qualify.  See more details about nesting here.

Read the rules for the iconic SaddleSore 1600 on the Ironbutt Association site.   The rules are identical to those of a SaddleSore 1600, except the mileage and time requirements are greater.

You may elect to ride more miles in any one day, as long as the total mileage of the entire ride is within the time challenge. So if your personal rhythm means you would rather ride 1,350 kms on day one and then take an extended motel stop, well into the second day, you may do so, as long as the total milege is completed within the time challenge.

You have several options to bail out on these rides. The documents needed are the same as a SaddleSore 1600K so if you cannot complete, say, the SaddleSore 3000K, you may still have successfully completed the Saddlesore 2000K.

Documentation:  See here.
