The Bun Burner Silver is a motorcycle ride in which you must ride 1,500 miles in less than 30 hours.

The Bun Burner Gold is a motorcycle ride in which you must ride 1,500 miles in less than 24 hours.

Before you can apply for one of these rides, you must have completed at least one of these rides:

--SaddleSore 1000
--SaddleSore 2000
--Bun Burner 1500 (1,500 miles in less than 36 hours)
--any rally recognized by the IBA in which your mileage can be accurately verified as complying with the requirements of one of the rides above

You have several options to bail out on these Bun Burner rides. The documents needed are the same as a SaddleSore 1000  so if you cannot complete, say, the BBG, you may still have successfully completed the SaddleSore 1000 or the Bun Burner Silver.

Documentation:  See here.


DBR - Dated Business Receipt

A DBR is a machine generated receipt with the date, time and LOCATION on it.  Check it - do not assume it is correct.  A receipt with an incorrect time/date/location is worthless.  Check and re-check.

Verification Fee: Bun Burner Gold

Read the rules for the iconic SaddleSore 1000 on the Iron Butt Association site.   The rules are identical to those of a SaddleSore 1000. You may start and finish in any city you wish. 

You may take any route you wish.

Your official time is determined by the starting and ending receipts.  PLEASE check these documents and make sure the clock and date are correct! is strongly recommended but not required.

It is YOUR responsibility to prove you did the ride.  Spotwalla goes a long way towards this proof.

Do not rely on your speedometer mileage.  Most Japanese motorcycle odometers read 'high' by as much as 5%.  When planning your ride, it is wise to plan for an additional 50 miles of riding to be more certain that you have met the verification requirements.  Verification of mileage is done using any one of several computerized road atlases.
