Astronaut Diapers: Get You Staff
by Staff
Iron Butt riders are always looking for the edge that will allow them to ride longer and farther. Among the major limiting factors are the need to refuel and the need to pee. When you're trying to cover 1000 or 1500 miles with the minimum number of stops, addressing these limitations is a priority. An auxiliary tank addresses the first of these. But short of wearing a catheter and bag, there's not much you can do to avoid pee stops. Unless you have access to one of the spinoffs of the space program: the Maximum Absorption Garment (MAG). These things are Depends turned up to 11. A MAG is a hybrid diaper/pant filled with a superabsorbent material. Judging from the recent exploits of astronaut/stalker Lisa Nowak, these babies are good for at least 900 miles. Who knows, with a little dehydration thrown in, maybe you could do a Saddlesore 1000 (SS1K: 1000 miles in 24 hours) or even a Bun Burner Gold (BBG: 1500 miles in 24 hours) while wearing one of these.
