100/100/100/100 Ride in the spring
« on: Jan 10, 2019, 18:59:25 »
I'm once again hoping and planning to make a 100/100/100/100 ride this spring:

Over 100 years combined age of bike & rider
61 (my age) + 44 (1975 Norton's age) = 105

100th day of the year - 4/10/19

100 miles minimum ride distance

"The Ton" (100 MPH, at some point in the ride)

I'm HOPING it's not over 100 degrees on 4/10...

I'm also hoping to do a total of 1,000 miles in under 24 hours on the same ride, so I can finally claim a "Saddle Sore 1,000" Iron Butt ride before I'm too old to handle it without undue pain, and definitely without a huge tour boat.

Anyone else want to try for it?

As some are not inclined to exceed the speed limit, you can skip that part and make it a 100/100/100 ride.

As some others may be too young and/or have too new a bike, you can always add a pillion to reach 100 years total ages for a 100/100/100 ride.
It ain't braggin' if ya done it.

I'll be 40 this year, so I need to find a bike from 1959 or earlier?

I have the 100 years nailed, having 66 years on my clock and both a '79 and '78  bike. 100 mph should be no problem on the GL1000 - not sure the CB750 will be trustworthy for it yet. 100 miles? No problem! 4-10-2019 is a Wednesday, so that should be low-traffic on say.... US129 (AKA the Dragon). Might just try it!
BTW, no way I would try a SS1000 on anything other than my huge tour boat GL1800.

Yep.

...unless you get a passenger and ride a newer bike. (or a really old passenger, and a brand new bike).

How is this verified? Or is it on an Honor System?

I did a 1000 mile day on a 78 kz650 a few years ago and it damn near killed me. The craziest part was even after I made it to my destination it still felt like I was being buffeted by the wind

Me 71, bike '77 XS650 easily qualifies at 112. The ton and the distance I dunno? Maybe Ill find out, depends on the weather.
