I'd read on CMG (Canada moto guide) about a group who had taken 50cc scooters around one of the great lakes - taking many hours to do 800 or so KM in a mad rush. You can read some of the history here - http://www.madbastardrally.com/2004.html
By the second rally, this had morphed into a larger event... and things like scooter decorations and costumes had been added to the mix.
I joined, together with my ever patient wife Cindy, the third rally - in 2007.
I've decorated every bike in ever rally I've entered - and occasionally gone a little.... overboard. Some might say mad. Which of course, fits right into the spirit of the thing.
All in all over the years I've ridden the MBSR in the following machines:
2005 Kymco Bet and Win 150cc
Tomos Targa LX 50cc moped (This took 21 hours to complete the rally and that was a ... unique... experience.)
Sachs Madass 125cc
Sym Symba 125cc
Vespa P200 and Inder Sidecar
And this year will be my Burgman 400 and Armec sidecar.
That's half of the history - my next post will include some of how the MBSR changed how I ride, and how it influenced where I ride. After that I'll be doing a series of blog entries on my preparation and musings about the MBSR in my own unique style.
And then a big last post on the ride itself.
So as always....
To be continued....
