B. C. Holt’s Road Record, 1911

From the August 8, 1911 edition of the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 4:

B. C. Holt Makes Road Record on Motor Cycle.

B. C. Holt has made a new road record on his motor cycle.  He has been running all over the country this summer until going from one town to another is a matter of only a few minutes with him.  Last week he rode to Clarinda, going 2 3/4 miles out of his way, covering a distance of 43 miles in exactly one hour and twenty minutes and this over some very bad roads.  His wheel was a four horse Red Indian.  He has sold it to Atlas McGinnis and has ordered a 7 horse power twin cylinder.  We will have to have a split second watch to catch his time now.
