I've had a few 34-36 hour travel days, crossing the dateline heading east. So why not a 16 hour, 1000 mile ride heading west?

She's been hugged (in)appropriately.

Hm. If you put ice tires on a bike and headed to one of the polar caps, it should be possible to do an SS1K where you arrive before you leave.

Except for a four year window*, you'd have to claim you exceeded the speed limit by 10-20mph the entire way... I don't speak for the IBA, but I don't know if they'd go there. Putting in miles by dint of sheer speed is kind of against what they espouse, which is more about keeping the wheels turning than flat out haulin' ass.

* OTOH, If you hit Montana when they didn't have a speed limit, that's perfectly possible. There is a guy who certified a 2000 mile day, doing all of it in Montana when the only speed limit was "reasonable and prudent".
The IBA has just completed a fueling survey, the results will be in the upcoming issue of the Ironbutt Magazine *, which BTW if you have any interest in LD riding is a fantastic read. Short on travel stories and long on excellent information on making big days safe, enjoyable and yes, easier. IMO while five minute fuel stops are possible you better be using a stadium pal because a five minute fuel stop doesn't include a trip inside. For anything.

* I'm biased as I have a regular column in the magazine.

Another of my goals is to do a 48/10 ride.
Priceless.

Do you have any idea what went into that ride or how many people were involved in supporting it?

I'm sure on day four with six thousand high speed miles on his tires he strolled into a shop and for fresh rubber, assuming his tires were lasting that long. (they weren't)

Now a 48 in 10 *is* easy. Grab Ron's book, follow his route and don't loose a receipt. Granted "easy" is all relative and any LD ride for a certificate can become a real ball buster.

I hope you get the chance to give it a go and are successful.

1052 Miles. Ducati GT1000. 2010 Buckeye 1000 Bun Burner - Official Iron Butt Ride. 19 hours 27 minutes. Gas tank on the GT1000 is too small - otherwise a great ride.

Most in a 24 hour day was 1538 - far short of some of the record days people have done.

Bike: GL1800
Miles: 1538
Trip: 50CC from San Diego to Tybee Island, GA that took 45 hours overall
Got all the receipts and witness forms, but never turned them in as it seemed too easy. It wasn't, really, but I had convinced myself beforehand that it was too difficult for me to accomplish, and once it was completed, figured it must have been too easy.

Lots of 1000+ mile days, some intentional, most accidental. Prefer the ones with a little challenge - like riding in below zero (F) temperatures, a SS1k or BB1500 on the Haul Road with the KLR, or in the middle of a couple of 24 hour days without stopping except for food and fuel.

It not about seeing how many pieces of paper I can hang on the wall, or gaining bragging rights. It's about getting as much riding in as possible in a short time span, keeping the wheels turning as long as I'm having fun; riding until I'm tired of riding and it's not fun anymore. Then I get some sleep, get up and do it again.

IIRC Brian Roberts was his only "support crew". Pretty sure this was done entirely within the state of Nevada, where there are some pretty good open spaces to get across in a hurry.

Dale would get a couple of hours sleep while Brian serviced the bike, then get up and go again. Having someone service your bike while you catch a little shuteye doesn't take away from the fact that this was quite an accomplishment. Dale is a dyed-in-the-wool, very knowledgeable, endurance rider.
