Was that the quickest ride across Canada on a motorcycle? I know that Jim was more than just a racer.

It was indeed, a timed record ride across Canada in 1972 on a 650 Yamaha.

NIce reply by Paul Andratis.

Yep, Thats how they rolled at WCMC back in the day. (although I do remember not being able to leave the Arena in Bewdley after the Great Pine until 0dark thirty on the Sunday night, because someone in OCMC had Labbats or Molson ,can't remember which) as an event sponser and we could not see results until the last case of beer was opened. Or something along those lines.

Anyways, back to the questions,

Don't remember what year, but I seem to remember our own Niagara Timberline Rider, Bill Wilson, having a zero day at the Cord one year.

As far as zero points for 2 days, I'd have to guess Blair Sharpless. but again, my memory is not what it used to be.

Must have been all those Massasaga Enduro's I rode, or that one Great Pine. LOL!
