Three years ago GrandPaul proposed and some of us did the Inaugural 100/100/100 Ride.

Bike and rider's age must total AT LEAST 100.

You may ride any route you choose, as long as it is at least 100 miles.

No time limit, as long as 100 miles is ridden on April 10th between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM.

There are no awards, and no recognition.

I need to have a look-see then decide between the '66 or '67 Bonnies...


Would this year be a good year for the Second 100/100/100 Ride?

Saturday 9th April being the 100th day of this year, I'm making plans smile

Anyone care to join me?

I'm to be found sitting in a small boat on a big pond, with a cold beer, hoping a large Bass snags itself on my hook, somewhere in Georgia...

Anywhere in the world is fine according to GrandPauls rules but he does specify " bike" though I suppose if the age of the small boat added to your years comes to 100+ then I reckon rules could be bent if you row 100 miles or so around the pond in the alloted 24 hours whilst dangling bait for the bass.
Beer breaks would be allowable beerchug

That sounds like as good as reason as any other to go for a ride. I will join you, but you have a seven hour head start. It will take me a while to catch up.
And it looks like the temperature here will be in the 100's by then as well.

I'd allow it, IF he chugs 100 beers and catches 100 bass.

ONLY if.

I have the luxury of being able to ride a 1974, so I will either ride the John Player Norton or the Green 880. Either one will benefit from a limbering-up / shake-down before they meet their new owners, and both are easily capable of topping the ton (not a requirement, but a side benefit). It is POSSIBLE that temps may be in the 100s, although more likely just the low 90s.

Coincidentally, the date falls one week AFTER the Texas Mile standing-start land speed racing meet; THAT would have been a hoot, to do the mile at over 100 (easy enough).

Me and my oldest bike fall short at 97 years old, well I do have a 1968 Bultaco that would qualify but it has been sitting in a friends barn for 20 years

You won't be jailed or shot if you come up short. It's about getting out on the road for a little more than a cross-town jaunt to the cafe.

I'm good at 122, and that's without the 43 years for my sidecar and 72 years for my ballast, the lovely Mrs. Kent. Cheers.

Dunno yet Geoff. Because you would have done 3/4 of the required mileage just coming to us & going home I will plot another more southerly route, one with a starting point mid way between us & you eg Aston on Trent.

The third 100 is it's done on the 100th day of the year.

The FOURTH 100 would be doing the ton...

We sure are clocking up the numbers Bob! Please say hi to Mrs K for us :bigt

For me, rider & bike = 138 add Canterbury sidecar chassis 60 = 198 Not counted the Box, that was made by us about 12years ago.
If you add the passenger who will probably be with me then we are a piece over 250 years

Glad GPs ride rules do not have us riding a mile for each year laughing

The rules are very loose.

You could ride till you lose 100 nuts, bolts, washers and/or screws...

If you ride 259 miles on the 259th day of the year, that would be quite an achievement.
