Mad Bastard Scooter Rally 2017 London Canada
The Mad Bastard Scooter Rally (MBSR) is a unique event that takes riders on an adventure through an over +500km journey that has to be completed within 24 hours – on motorcycle scooters – preferably 50cc. MOTORESS has joined in since 2007 and is a partnered sponsor again for 2017. We will be representing the madness again riding with our partners on a KYMCO sponsored scooter!
The Mad Bastard Scooter Rally is an 600 km (or so) motorcycle scooter ride through some great Canadian scenery in the province of Ontario all the while collecting as many “mad” points that you can along the way. The winner gets a brand new KYMCO scooter!
Presented by KYMCO Canada, the MBSR is not easy but the fun fuels all the over 100 participants. The route is provided the night before and hosts mandatory stops, roadside clues, and challenges. The emphasis is on the fun and crazy factor – it’s a rally, not a race. It’s a motorcycle scooter challenge about strategy, time management, and creativity!
More about the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally Route
As is the case in earlier rallies, the main route will be about 600km. There will likely be an extra bonus route/challenge for the strong at heart. This is the case each year.
Scooters of Different Sizes and Classes
In order to keep the rally open to all motorcycle scooters, but also keep a level playing field, the organizers at the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally have a series of classes organized by engine capacity. The smaller the motorcycle scooter, the longer the allotted time to complete the course, and more mad points you’ll achieve. But then, it is a lot harder! And note, that engine “CC” is defined as to what is printed on your registration papers unless you’ve modified your engine and must inform or risk disqualification.
Here Are The MBSR Competition Classes:
- Straitjacket Class (24 hours) – All scooters and mopeds up to 50cc in capacity
- Heavily Medicated (20 hours) – All scooters greater than 50cc but no greater than 110cc
- Therapy Required (18 hours) – Scooters greater than 110cc but no greater than 200cc
- Day Release (16 hours) – Scooters greater than 200cc
How to Collect Mad Points
The Mad Bastard Scooter Rally is not just about completing the route within your allotted class time. If you want to have a good crack at winning the main prize, then you’re going to have to collect as many “mad” points as you can. There are different categories for the mad points including:
- Madness of rider costume.
- Age or uniqueness of his/her scooter.
- Various acts of madness, both set by the organizer and created by the riders.
