Pete Conrad, the third man to walk on the moon was also an avid motorcyclist. He died in 1999 as the result of an accident in which he left the pavement.

I'm guessing that Carey is (or intends to be) an Iron Butt'er. I met a BMW 1100 rider the other night who's an IB'r and he pointed me to their web site www.ironbutt.com

Man, some of those folks are maniacal! ;)
Over 100,000 miles in a single year! Do you realize that's 350 miles a day for 365 days?!

Interesting reading though. If/when I ever get a bike it sounds like it might be pretty fun. ;f
