Ardys Kellerman queen of the Iron butt rally

Earlier today While beating the stink out of my Versy up by Evergreen Colorado, I happened upon a pleasant elderly lady riding a BMW GS650. To my surprise, it turned out to be none other than Ms. Ardys Kellerman, four time Iron Butt Rally finisher...that's an eleven thousand mile in eleven days endurance run touching all four extreme corners of the lower 48. I was in the presence of greatness while conversing with this tiny 74 year old woman. She is just shy of one million miles of riding her BMW...a true liefetime achievement. Thank you for taking the time to talk to me Ardys you are a true gem and a delight to behold! God Bless and hope you have many many thousands of miles ahead of you!!!!
Humbled,
Rik

My wife will be so jealous. We have read stories written about Ms. Kellerman, and it is my wifes ambition to follow in her shoes. What a true opportunity you had to get to talk with her.
