have to tip my hat to that guy for his "iron butt" ride.

3000K [~1800mi] @ 120kph [75mph] = ~25 hours, riding plus 'pit' stops.

roughly like riding from Brownsville, Texas to the Canadian border, making only pit stops. :wacko:

a "normal" years mileage for me ~ 7500mi [~12,000K]

I don't think I would have enjoyed riding that much - there just isn't all that much fun in endurance riding for me. I could see the reward - and risk - in setting a 24hr record, but for me it would not be fun, just a challenge.
