Iron Butt Rally?

Nearly every time the IBR has run there have been riders here in it. This year, with Don having to drop out again, and Coni out for medical reasons, there has been no IBR chatter. Is there no rider from this list running it this year? That would be a first.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.

Judging by input on the LDR list I would believe he is.

Ride On!

I hope he still is. He's sending me a wheel and tire to keep for him!

Where is the start info for the Butt?

Donna told me to come on down to St Louis and see the start. Can't find info on the Iron Butt site.

Can you be of help?

Have to drop off donations for CCR and thought I would stop on the way back.

There's also a checkpoint on the 24th from 7-9 pm at the same hotel. I'll be there, doing pit crew for a couple of riders and taking lots of pics. Their final banquet is the next Friday, which means I'll have to miss the CCR banquet.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Me too. Well, at my house rather than the hotel parking lot. See you there.
