The 100 Plus Motorcycle Run attracted more than 80 motorcycles of all shapes and sizes, including Harley Davidsons new and old, a farm bike or two, and three wheelers like the Can-Am Spyder.
The event has been running since 1985, when two Invercargill men wanted to commemorate the first recorded journey of an internal combustion motorcycle engine, which was in Scotland in 1885, by travelling the same distance on their own bikes.
Event co-ordinator Bill Obers said yesterday's run, which left Feldwick Gates at Queens Park in Invercargill at 12.30pm bound for the Bluff rugby grounds, was all about giving motorcycle enthusiasts a chance to get together and go for a ride safely, and to meet like-minded people.
There was $700 worth of prizes handed out after judging, which included prizes for the tattiest seat and rustiest exhaust, Mr Obers said.
