1,114½ Miles in 24 Hours.

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.
