While doing a Google search on “Honda C70” last night, I stumbled upon the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally ‘04, put together by CMG, a Canadian motorbike online magazine. I love to read stories like this. A group of several (6?) scooterists go on an endurance rally around Lake Ontario on scooters, including a Yellow 1981 Honda C70! I won’t give away the ending, whether they made it or not, but it’s a pretty cool story. You can also read about the ‘05 Rally here, although no C70’s made the trip in ‘05.
I have a fascination about motorbike journeys, and have been reading “Long Way Round” by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. Someday I’d like to take an extended trip on a bike too. Seems like a neat experience.
