4th May 2013 – The day the TR3OC attempt to create a new record for the single largest group of classic bikes and their riders to successfully complete an SS1000 in one go.
For those of you that want to watch the action from the comfort of your computer screen or, for the more adventurous, join in with the ride for a while, simply go to either :
This will show you where the main pack of riders, which includes 3 possibly 4 triples, is at that time. The location can be approximately up to 10 minutes behind.
There are two other bikes using Spot Trackers on the ride :
Chris Kilner – who is on an Enfield 500 !!
David Taylor and his better half, Alys – on a Tiger 800
Martin Rawson who is riding along with Peter Nicolson and Dave Williamson is relying on slightly older technology …..
Just a heads up for those who are going to follow peoples progress and maybe want to share in the fun.DaveW,Peter Nicholson and I will be meeting at Scotch Corner Services at 5.30am and doing the route clockwise.So a few hundred miles behind the main group of riders. We won’t have a tracker system but have the technology of mobile phones so my number is 07806 807776,and I can provide a text update of location at one of our stops.
A map of the route that the riders are taking is shown on the TR3OC club web-site by clicking on the following link :
Most of the riders are starting between 4.00am and 5.00am on saturday morning and so should be finishing their rides around midnight
A few photos at the first fuel stop for the main group.
