Quite a feat. I would love to see a video of this historical event. Condensed down to about 90 minutes of course!

  bikes, all kinds.
That's 73 mph average speed including stops. I wonder what his top speed was like and how often he hit it. Impressive!

I am sure, as all motorcyclists do, he obeyed the law at all times and was careful and cautious in his riding while observing the speed limit. Careful and cautious. Yep. : )
Can't imagine what the first run was like with the crappy roads and really old school motorcycle.

The bike probably rode itself and woke him up when it needed fuel.

That's pretty nuts and awesome.

Is that a fuel cell on the back seat? If so he could probably go 500-600 miles on a fill up so he'd only have to stop to gas up 5 or 6 times saving a lot of time and at least allowing him to not have to ride overly fast to maintain that 73 MPH average.

So the Iron Butt guys think that they are badass, eh? Well, actually, they are too, but this is a whole other level.

Tube in pant leg.

Probably a condom catheter like what is used on a diving drysuit (hooked to a P-valve). Racers have all kinds of weird solutions. Wearing diapers in long distance rally racing, motocross guys using maxi pads (without "wings" for forehead sweat pads. Bicycle racers even use maxi pads for"padding" between them and their rock-hard seats. There's just a lot of strange things it takes to win at the top levels.
