50 CC Quest - Cross Country in Less than 50 Hours
100CCC Gold - Back to Back 50CC Quests

As of August 30, 2002, only 208 riders had completed the 50CC Quest or the 50CC Quest Gold
and as of May 2, 2002, only 44 riders had completed the CCC Gold. 

This ride was organized by the Motorcycle Tourer's Forum at the request of its members to repeat the successful 2002 & 2003 Motorcycle Tourer's Forum 50CC/100CCC rides where numerous participants completed the 50CC and the 100CCC.  Although the trip was organized as a "group" ride, riders rode individually and joined with other riders at the end to celebrate.

Trip Philosophy

A quote from an LDRider will be used as the philosophy for the Motorcycle Tourer's Forum 50CC/100CCC Iron Butt Association Ride: "Everyone gets tired at different times, or gets hungry or even has to pee at different times. It's YOUR ride and it really isn't much fun when you are sitting on the side of the road waiting for your riding partner who is taking a quick nap."

The group record was determined in the most conservative fashion as described below.

The group world record, requires that riders start and leave at the same points. Therefore for the 100CCC ride, the EWE group and WEW group were not combined to set the record. 

The IBA web site states: On a CCC GOLD ride a rider may submit documentation for the CCC GOLD ride OR up to two 50CC rides, but not both." Therefore only the group 50CC group record did not include riders who performed the 100CCC ride.

Each person participating in the MTF 50CC/100CCC Iron Butt Association Ride received a memento of the ride.
