Challenging? She's doing an endurance test on a public f**king road! I calculated the distance between Seattle and Annapolis. It's 2808 miles. In 50 hours. That's back-to-back 1400 mile days. Your analogies are irrelevent. We're not talking about 10 hours on the road and then accidently falling asleep, dude. Whatever their supposed rules are, the IBA promotes this bull*****. The whole point of her little escapade was to ride while she was exhausted.

She wanted to cleanse her soul and "accomplish" something by deliberately putting everybody else at risk. WTF has that got to do with freedom. BTW, I despise Michael Moore.

Wow, you just can't accept a dissenting opinion, can you? You didn't prove anything except your own propensity to believe everything you're told.



By the way, it takes two people to have an argument, and you took it to an equally ridiculous level as I did.

Re: iron butt
 
I think you missed the point of the editorial. The author's point was that he, in fact, did not violate any of the written rules of the organization, but apparently violated some unwritten rules that were unknown to him at the time and that have been violated numerous times by others. He was pissed off because he was being singled out simply because he wrote an article that described mischevious but widely indulged behavior by other members of the IBA that (shock and horror) made them look bad.

According to him, they took his title away because he admitted to speeding along desert roads outside of Las Vegas (perfectly safe, and absolutely mandatory to keep up with traffic), and doing some wheelies down freeway ramps. For the Iron Butt people to take away his award for speeding is hypocritical. Any of them that say they don't speed on their endurance runs across Nevada, Utah, Montana, or any other desolate place in this country are liars, plain and simple.
