I've done some insane mileage runs over the years but before anyone gets too puffed up about their accomplishments be aware that there is an organization in the motorcycle circles that documents long distance motorcycle rides. Its called the IBA (Iron Butt Association) and each year they hold an 11 day rallyee competition. A woman (Wendy Crockett) won for the first time this year logging about 13,000 miles over the eleven days. There are all sorts of crazy records including tecords for 30 consecutive days, back to back coast to coast etc. Thats rain, snow, hail, cold, hot, fuel stops, sleep, maintenance, bathroom breaks, etc. There are records for Key West to Pruhdoe Bay, etc. No heat or air, no relief drivers, no one fixing sammys. I noticed that this year the motorcycles ranged from Gold Wings and big Bmws etc to a Harley Sporster.

Impressive accomplishments.
