Couldn't have put it any better than that, Frank.
Ya know, the IBA has been around since the 1970's. I'm not sure what the membership count currently is, but there are probably only about 25,000 world wide. Now, there have been many many more people who have done 1,000 miles in under 24 hours, but in order to be IBA you have to document everything and have witnesses sign forms. Pretty exclusive company to be in. And the thing is, it's not that damn difficult if you love riding.
The best part is, people think you're nuts for doing such a thing!
