Premier Program

The Iron Butt Association is a not a dues-based organization.  Once you complete and certify an IBA ride you are a member forever without any additional cost to you.  However, of our tens-of-thousands of members, there are a few who seek elite status.  Premier  Membership is where we start.

Premier Membership has benefits and privileges that cannot be had in any other manner for any price.

  • Subscription to a private digital newsletter which keeps Premier members on the inside track of everything happening in the IBA.
  •  Fast-track certification of IBA rides.   Premier members have access to a private email-based ride submission system and a dedicated certification group which puts your rides at the top of the queue.
  • Advance notice and early registration for IBA events.  Premier members receive notice of events before the general membership and can register before registration is open to the general membership.  Being locked out of guaranteed sell-out events such as the Jacksonville Party is a thing of the past for Premier members.
  • Advance notice of new certification and rides.  Premier members will know first about new rides (such as themed rides) and certification.
  • Special rides.  Premier members have access to rides that are specifically tailored for Premier riders.
  • Private Premier-only forum.  Premier members have access to a Premier-only chat in the IBA forum. 
  • The Iron Butt Rally.   If you are one of the uber-elite who has what it takes to compete in the toughest motorcycle rally in the world, Premier membership is really not optional.  Premier members get a private drawing like IBR veterans.  Plus, Premier members get a second draw in the main drawing.  Your chance of being selected for this rarest opportunity is more than doubled.  Hundreds apply and a few are selected.  If you long to be one of them; Premier membership is priceless.
