Sleeping On Motorcycles- The Iron Butt Motel
Sleeping on a motorcycle- also known as the Iron Butt Motel.
I’ve taken my fair share of naps atop various motorcycles, including the BMW f650gs pictured above. You know what they say- even a 15-20 minute nap can help recharge your system, which is incredibly valuable when you’re doing something that requires your attention… ohhh, like riding a motorcycle. I found myself rolling through the gentle curves with the group, so relaxed that my eyes started to get heavy. When we stopped to check GPS and whatnot, I stretched out the most I could and closed my eyes for a few minutes. It made a huge difference.
Some motorcycles seem more comfortable than others, though… yet each rider finds the most relaxing position on their own bike. So, here’s 15 photos of motorcyclists sleeping on their motorbikes.
Sometimes, you just gotta remove one shoe.
Apparently this whole one shoe nap is a thing.
And a cat nap, just because.

I have certainly done that before. So have the neighborhood stray cats.
One of the reasons I like trikes.
