40yrs younger and being able to cross over  by ship I'd have been tempted.

about six years ago,an entrant with a 1929 BSA sloper tried ......he had nine spare motors,five spare gearboxes,enough spare frames,wheels ,etc to build two bikes.Unfortunately on the first day of the run he took a wrong turning and ended up in a river.........This year someone is running a 1928 "Black" Ariel...Without any spares,except tires and chains.....The bikes lose so much power on the 10,000ft+ passes ,that riders often have to push for miles uphill to augment motor power......The winners are always one of a large group of 1911 Harleys,as age is a factor in the results..........but I reckon my 1928 FD Harley would go the course,whether I would is a another matter.
