2011 Iron Butt Rally

June 20 - July 1, 2011

****************************************

The Iron Butt Rally, sponsored by the Iron Butt Association, is considered the ultimate competitive motorcycle endurance ride. Held every other year in odd-numbered years, it covers a minimum of approximately 9,000 miles in North America over an eleven-day period. Points are accumulated by arriving at checkpoints within the allotted time and by visiting optional bonus locations between the checkpoints. It is not a race, but rather a test of planning, preparation, strategy and tactics, riding skill, and endurance.
