Most widely travelled BSA
« on: 27.07. 2010 18:47 »
I just found my A10's Dating Certificate in my paperwork folder and had the idea for a little fun contest.

Who's BSA is the most widely travelled?

My A10 was delivered from Birmingham to Cape Town, RSA when new in 1956, then was brought to Austria a few years ago. According to the online air-line distance calculator (isn't the www great? *lol*), this makes 19146.374 km (11896.01 mls).

Who can beat that?  *smile*
