1,114½ Miles in 24 Hours.
NOW that motor cycles are capable of such high speeds, thousand-mile road records are only possible in countries less congested than Great Britain. For that reason Australian, African, and American motor cyclists have a form of sport unknown to riders this country. To cover over. 1,114 miles on the road in twenty-four hours is good going — it is almost the average speed for the T.T. Such a run was made in August last at  by Harold Parsons on an Indian Scout. The previous record for this  was 851 miles, established in South Australia.
The Motor Cycle, October 25th, 1920.
"As well as the prized 24 hour record, [Harold Parsons] set new times for 6, 12 and 18 hours, as well as distance marks, a total of 24 in all." ~ Rhodes Motors at Old Bike
