Well its started again :evil: This time out of London Ontario 8-) I have already registered 8-)

Any one else going?
I am so excited! They are planning something good in honor of Rob.

Is there a website or someplace to find out dates, schedules ETC ?
London Ontario isn't that far from Michigan, so the possibility of attending is very real.

They change the rule because of them. the previous rally they had a Dodge Sprinter following them as a support vehicle and other unfair practices (well suspected rumors anyways)

Did they have stunt doubles to take shifts on riding ?

From what I heard they used the van as a rest opportunity as the van kept driving the route. But I only saw them and the van speed by me and the wife as our scooters at the time were only able to go a max of 75-80Km on a tank of fuel(3L/ 0.75Gal) and a top speed of 65KPH and their Aprilla SR50s easily out paced us.

Until you just posted that, I didn't realize that speed and range were players in that game.
The Honda Silverwing scooter is supposed to do 105 MPH, (168kmh ), would it be within the rules to use a Silverwing with auxiliary fuel tanks ?

Hi The silver wing would be in a class of big cc scooters and your finish time is a lot shorter, but I think you can carry extra gas. I do on my 50cc.

The GoldWing would be in the Day Trip Class +200cc so you would get I think 12-14 hours to complete the route.
Since switching from my 150cc to the smaller 50cc class I always carry a 5L JerryCan of fuel just for those in case moments. In last years rally at one of the gas stops the station had no gas left and I was running near empty at the time=( so I filled my tank and gave some to one of the other guys that were there that needed fuel just enough to get us to the next stop at Port Dover. I'll always carry one even though I may never need it but its a comfort to know I have it.

I signed up this week, just bought a Ruckus and a Giorno. Either my wife or daughter will be joining me for our first Mad Bastard. Rob Harris was a friend of mine, and it's been on the radar for a number of years. Time to honour the maddest bastard of all.

Always nice to see first timers coming out. Be prepared for a sore arse by the end of the rally on the Giorno bring extra padding. We will see you there.

Glad to see new riders for the rally 8-) I suggest you have new rollers and belt for the ruck for top speed, and put in heavy clutch springs(blue). They are cheap and easy to install and what a difference you will feel going down hill so much faster and carry that speed into next hills really helps.
