A streak is to perform an activity every day for a long period. This term is usually used for a running or bicycling streak, but it can be used for motorcycling. The longest motorcycle streak I know of has lasted over 6,000 days so far.
I rode bikes in my youth in the 1970s, but drifted away from it in the mid 1980s, and only started again in 2013. I’ve done almost 100,000 km since then, and would like to step it up a notch.
I live in Auckland, New Zealand. It’s a beautiful country, ideal for motorcycling, and with a climate which allows me to ride all year round. I’m retired, so I have the time.
My aim is to:
- Ride every day, unless I am unable to ride for significant medical reasons (I don’t anticipate this to be a factor in the near future), or if I am on holiday outside of Auckland.
- Keep a minimum average distance travelled of 100 km per day
There will be days when I am busy, or the weather is foul, or I have a cold and don’t feel like riding. On these days, I will do a shorter ride, possibly even just ride around the block. To allow such shorter rides, I need to keep ahead of my 100 km per day so I always have some spare mileage in the bank.
Lets see how long I can keep this up!
