Iron Butt Magazine

The Iron Butt Magazine is the ultimate guide to long distance motorcycling.

It is designed to inform, educate and inspire over 60,000 riders worldwide who strive to keep abreast of the latest technological advances and trends. The process starts with a group of highly talented writers whose work is illustrated by an equally talented pool of graphic artists and photographers. This content is then put into the hands of the magazine's editors and art director who shape the magazine into its final presentation. The end result is a magazine that contains informative articles, editorials, pictorials, profiles, product reviews, and technical pieces for riders of all skill levels -- from experts to novices. It is the only professionally produced periodical of its kind.
