Default Sportster takes 3rd in Iron Butt Rally

Brett Donahue on a 1200 Sportster placed 3rd in the latest Iron Butt Rally.

He travelled 11,283 miles in11 days to earn 3rd place behind a couple of BMW's and ahead of a whole host of other bikes, 97 entries total.

link to 2007rally: http://www.ironbuttrally.com/IBR/2007.cfm

So I guess this should put an end to all the chick bike aspersions.

Where in the hell would you travel that far to in that amount of time? I can see if you got a destination, but just to make a record, ouch, no wait a minute, OUCHHH!

I'd be curious to know if was a rubber mount. The rubber mounts are definitely man bikes. Why? because girls don't have prostates! In other words, if you want to father any kids, don't try to put big miles on a rigid mount Sportster first

I'm guessing he is a Pharmist and tooka supply of novacain. Really, Way to go Brett!

According to the Tech section on the Iron Butt site it was "extensively modified". I found a link to his 2005 bike, not sure if it is the one he used in 2007 but it is radical to say the least. Follow the link for the pics.

Thanks for the link, I know a guy who rode his BMW "stealth bomber" in the Iron Butt.

Wow, I saw the picture. That doctor really did a good job with the operation. She really does look like a man.
