    Iron Butt,Saddle Sore or LDR?

    I recently made the acquaintance of a gentleman who has a lot of experience in long distance riding. His name is Tim Yow. He has put together a very nice web site with information geared toward the riders of Iron Butt, Saddle Sore and long distance riding in general. This looks like a great resource for the new and seasoned rider. I checked with Tim and he welcomed the link being put up here on the MOA site. If long distance is your interest, it's well worth the look. Thanks Tim.

    Don't overlook the real deal at www.ironbutt.com; the web site of the Iron Butt Association.

    ...or the Iron Butt Magazine for that matter. Which, BTW, is available to members and non-members alike. At $20 a year, it's the best deal around.

    As an FYI, Tim Yow is one of our most accomplished riders, he absolutely knows what he is talking about!

    Who in the Hamlet is Santa Clause Mary?

    It is indeed a very cool site, and the IB Magazine is indeed a great read. I've done fewer 1,000-in-1 rides than I can count on one hand, but the tips and info are great for the more regular 500 and 600 mile days.

    Here's a tidbit for you.

    No matter how many rides, rallies, events and seminars I attend or manage there is always something to learn.

    I can learn from a total noob via the questions he or she may ask.

    I can learn to be a better rider from teaching the MSF BRC course over and over.

    I can learn from reading trip reports and ride stories from a gentleman such as Mr. Yow or Mr. Verrill.

    Once in a while the presentation of material might not be "what I'd do" but by discounting any initial negative impressions I can still find the pearls of wisdom.

    LD / Endurance riding is the extreme of the extreme. To do it well and as often as Tim has is very impressive and the first item on his website (fatigue by Dr. Arthur) is incredibly valuable not only to the LD rider but someone who wants to have string together a few 600 mile days on tour.
