Postie Bike Challenge

Postie Bike Challenge
The Honda CT110 is a diminutive 105cc, air-cooled, single cylinder motorcycle. It’s used in Australia for postal deliveries, and renowned for its toughness. It’s also the selected transport for a bizarre 2,000 mile race across the outback, the Postie Bike Challenge. The eighth annual race starts on 3 October 2009, and it costs just AU$4950 (US$3500) to enter. This includes a late model bike to ride, three meals a day, fuel, and a one-way air ticket back to the Australian city of your choice after the race finishes. Sounds like a helluva deal to us, and it’s charitable too: after the race, the bikes are donated to the Rotary Club. [Thanks to Studio Go photographer Josh Evans for the tip and the terrific images.]
