Although this is commonly known and referred to as an Iron Butt ride, this record attempt is not recognized by the Iron Butt
Association. They can't support this kind of activity because of the potential risk of harm to those taking part. Dan will
however be following officially recognized IBA documentation standards and rules such as the one that states that you can't go more than 400 miles between gas stops. It makes sense to go by IBA standards because they're tried, tested and they've worked the kinks out of documenting long distance motorcycle rides over the years.
