Mr E. Fuller, of Albury, established a fine motor cycle performance last week by riding from Melbourne to Albury, a distance of 201 miles, in the record time of 9 hrs. 3 min. Only those motorists or cyclists who have ever been over the wretched roads and tracks extending from Sydney almost right up to Albury, have any conception of what fast motoring is like over this country.

Mr Fuller's mount was a Dunlop shod, spring frame, Relay 2¾ h.p. motor cycle, and the fact that the machine went through this rough country at an average speed of 22 miles an hour is conclusive proof that a reliable and durable motor cycle can be properly assembled in these States.
