Last year I rode in a local club ride called the Rusty Nuts Grand
Challenge. They hold it every year and the objective is to complete a 1000
mile course in under 24 hours. It isn't a race and time aren't kept - it is
just a test of endurance. I completed it on a Suzuki TU250 (a two valve air
cooled single) but another guy completed it on a Honda RG50! More info on
the club at
