I did 1000 miles in 10hr 36min and they denied my entry. I kept all my receipts and GPS logged it too. They said I didn't do it legally so I didn't qualify.

I guess there is some specific protocol to follow?

I guess so....I actually did over 2500 miles that weekend. Rode to Deals Gap, then all the roads around it, the Skyway, Blue Ridge etc...then rode home. It was a very memorable trip. I did get caught doing 90mph on the way home in Lousiana in a tropical storm. It was raining so bad that I removed my V1 Radar in put it in a ziplock bag to keep it dry.

from their rules:
Quote:
Please remember that the Iron Association is dedicated to the sport of safe, long-distance motorcycle riding. It does not condone nor will it tolerate unsafe activities such as excessive speed (in many states, riding more than 20 miles per hour above the speed limit will also get you charged with reckless driving. Reckless driving is a serious charge in any jurisdiction. In many cases your motorcycle can be impounded and you will be required to return to court for a personal appearance at a hearing, irrespective of the distance you have to travel to appear or the hardship that it might entail. Few experiences in motorcycling are more memorable than an appearance in traffic court, particularly if your license hangs on the outcome), reckless motorcycle operation, riding while fatigued or otherwise impaired, the use of stimulants to maintain alertness, or any other activity that results in riders exceeding their personal limits. Any rider found to have engaged in these or other unsafe activities, as determined in the sole discretion of the IBA, will have their certification refused. If the certification is already issued and we find out about these infractions after the fact, the certification will be revoked (if you read Motorcyclist Magazine, you may have seen them burning an IBA certification when we revoked the certification of a noted staffer's ride). For these purposes, the IBA will consider as an admission of violating this policy any public statements made by the participant that describe participation in unsafe activities during a ride subject to certification.
1,000 miles over 10.5 hours (assuming NO stops) would mean averaging 95 mph. That alone is enough to provide reasonable doubt that you were well over 20mph over the speed limit for a lot of the time, which is grounds for denial of certification.
