Malle London is an accessories company with the right attitude; they set up events where their gear can be used, and for the sheer fun of it.  ‘The Mile’ is their grass-track dragstrip on a private estate held the past few years, and now they’ve hosted ‘The Great Mile’, a 1000 mile, 72-hour motorcycle rally, that ran from the Northern Tip of Scotland to the Southern Tip of Cornwall.  It was an event open to ‘custom, classic and cafe racers’, limited to 100 entrants, which they claim to be ‘the greatest motorcycle rally in the country.’  That might just be true, as British motorcycle rallies tend to be short-mileage events!

Photographer Fabio Affuso was along for the ride, and send us these shots from the route, which was a mix of wet and dry weather, held on small roads, and planned carefully by the Malle crew for maximum sightliness and fun riding. Taking the back roads through Scotland and Wales is a motorcyclist’s dream, and having someone else organize the route, the food, and the bed makes for a great experience – ask any Cannonballer! It’s also, at best, a great builder of comraderie between the participants. We at The Vintagent love a good moto-rally, and give the Malle team high marks for putting on fun events.
