Totally yanked this from ZRXOA

Here's the deal:

1. The ride takes place on the 100th day of the year (April 10th this year, a Saturday; Saturdays make it easier for most folks)

2. Age of rider plus bike must equal or exceed 100.

3. You must do the ton (100MPH) at least once during the ride (for those not so inclined, you can do 100KPH)

4. You must ride at least 100 miles.

All fairly easy if you own a classic bike. Plenty of time to prep the bike if it needs work or has been sitting (it happens).

There was a lot of discussion about variations to achieve the 100, such as 50 miles on the way to work then 50 miles on the way back home, or taking a pillion so that your ages would add up to 100, average a minimum of 100KPH for the entire ride, ride in 100 degree heat, whatever you can figure out to have as many 100s in your ride as possible; get creative. 100 miles in 100 minutes - too easy.

Whatever, it's flexible.

There are a bunch of folks on various forums that have done the ride in the last few years since I first started it, and reported back with pix; that's part of the idea. I really thought it might catch on more, but there are a few that have done it 4 or 5 times now. I've only done it twice myself!

I guess I'm out. My bike isn't 67 years old. I will intend to participate anyway. Shooting for registration and insurance on April 1.

Unfortunately, I don't own a rare 1955 model. Maybe I'll do a 100/63/100/100 ride.

Sound good. Bike + rider = 107. I'll have to give it a shot! Of course, the problem with being 63 is I'll have to remember!

Could you find a passenger whose age would bring the total to 100? How about the age of you + passenger + helmet + jacket + boots? How about wearing a piece of clothing that belongs to one of your grandparents that would bring the total over 100? The rules are really flexible.

Did I get any extra credit for bike + rider equaling exactly 100?

For those who can't reach the 100 total, how about doing an extra mile for every point less than 100? That will even up the pain on one's arse from the first ride of the season, particularly if you have a Kawasaki.

Somehow I doubt it's a 1969 model...
