Default Anyone do an iron butt?

I did 650 miles in 12 hours and wasn't really even trying, I think if I went balls out I could do an iron butt no problem. Anyone do one before? I'm thinking I'll do one next summer after I get new suspension to work for my fat ass, and get a Corbin seat.

I don't get it? I've done 750 or so miles in one sitting, no stopping for fuel or anything, and no, air ride in a semi isn't much improvement over your jeep.

Iron butt is a biker thing...NOT a jeep thing.
Long distance is WAY different on a bike than it is in your big fat Semi Truck seat.

If you obeyed traffic laws, you went 13.5 hours without peeing? That's dedication

Not quite technically an Iron Butt ride, but my buddy Brian, who lives in Anchorage Alaska, flew into Detroit last year and we went to go pick up his used BMW road/track bike, and he got back to Anchorage 7 days later. I think thats pretty impressive on a bike.
