He is also my hero of sorts because as my C.O. he was able to put 70+ thousand miles on his K1200LT in one year. The year before that he put 117,000 miles on it in 365 days, for the tidy average of 320 miles a day, every day of the year. I am ecstatic any day I can put 320 miles on a bike, and they don't come too often. Somehow he has mastered his priorities and time management to a degree I do not comprehend let alone ever hope to achieve.
It is truly a shame he is missing the Iron Butt Rally. Someone pulled out in front of him in Missouri on his way to Colorado sending him over the bars and car and he is now upstairs nursing multiple fractures but is expected to be okay.

I don't care how many bonus points the man has, to take the Beak this far when others are using full dressed, faired bikes almost exclusively, Keating is the Iron Man to me.
The fellow I met a week ago in Kansas City, Tyler, has reportedly gone home, dropping out of the Iron Butt. Understandable, he was running nearly dead last, had trouble with his K1200LT, and had asked himself if he was still having fun and was brave enough to answer "no". This, after crossing America from Denver to North Carolina, back to Denver, to Maine, then back to the midwest. The man had done more riding than I'll do in 12 months. Well done, even with a DNF.
