As most adventure riders I was aware of the Iron Butt Rally but never took a more detailed interest in it. Until I published an article on Gary Eagan's record breaking ride from Alaska to Florida {link}. Intrigued by these extreme long distance motorcycle riders, I went out and got Ron Ayres's "Against The Wind" book.

Expecting to be bored silly within the first few pages, I was very surprised at these intriguing book. It is very well written, and explains all the characters (and some of them are "real" characters), the inner (and outer) demons they had to fight against, the struggles & tribulations, the contest and the organization.

The book makes a very interesting read, even if you're not a long distance motorcycle rider. The Iron Butt Rally draws very special people to compete, and it's not everyone's cup of tea, but even if it's not your thing, the book itself is very good and fun to read. In fact, I read it in one day....
