    I just dont understand the concept... although I am not overly familiar with the true rules,,, I have seen enough posts on advrider.com to know that it seems like you would have to pass up a lot of really cool stuff to get in the miles required... oh and here in Hawaii I would have to ride the scooter around in a circle like 300 times.

    But, it sure would be easy for you to do a coast to coast to coast!!!!

    There is a lot of good reading on the Iron Butt Association web site.

    Only other motorcyclists, and bicyclists, can appreciate long distance endurance riding.

    No, but a person needs an iron will to wade through all the RubenX posts.

    Good Luck on your quest.

    So far, I've got my Saddlesore 1000, Saddlesore 2000, Bun Burner Gold-1500 in 24, CCC100, National Parks Tour, certified.

    All of them are worth doing ---- done best with a good friend.

    If I can be of any help, don't hesitate to contact me.

    aren't most bike riders IBA by definition?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    heh - my club gives out a Stone Saddle award (indeed - the saddle is made of stone) to usually the same person every year who has the most miles ridden for our club "picnic" (also a 24 hour ride).

    the less hairs to catch clothing and get irritated, the less saddle sores
