Everyone who was a member in 1972 has an abiding memory of the World Record event. Some of their thoughts are collected here. Please add your own details so that friends can read them and muse "Ah, yes. I remember that now!"
I have checked on the database and it appears that the record for keeping a motorcycle in motion was in the 1974 and 1975 editions. It appeared on page 302 of the 1974 edition and on page 300 of the 1975 edition.

I have memories of the World Record event, the enthusiasm, the flying by the seat of our pants technology & the pioneer spirit in putting the whole thing together. I have a copy of the Guinness Book of Records recording our epic. I recall the original idea was to put the club on the map.

I bought one of the Belstaff jackets after the event and I think I only recently got rid of it (although it may still be in the loft!!!)

Soon after joining, I heard that the club was staging a 24 hour record attempt at Cadwell Park, and I decided to ride up on the Friday evening and have a look. What I did not realize was how few and far between were the petrol stations in that part of Lincolnshire, and that none of them were open on a Friday night.

The record attempt ... Mr Williams riding off and coming back 1½ hour later with his top box full of potatoes he had "scrumped" from some farmer's field ... these were quickly put on the camp fire and consumed with relish (actually butter - no one had any relish)

You just don't know what will turn up next!
