    G'day fellow riders!

    Quick intro before we take off on our World Record journey this evening at Lansdale Bike Night.

    We are Mike and Belik, 2 Guinness World Record holders aiming to break our 3rd record by traveling 9,000 miles across all 48 continental states on 2 Ruckuses.

    We both are video producers and our goal for this trip is to create content featuring the unheard stories of the diverse populations and vast landscapes across the United States.

    Here is our launch video:



    Every week we plan on posting an update here with the recent videos we've produced and a quick ride report.

    We know how supportive the ADV Rider forum is and are excited to have you join the ride, physically and virtually.

    So please, don't be strangers and reach out!

    Stay safe and ride hard!

    I've always thought doing what you're doing would be so much fun, similar to On The Road With Charles Kuralt, but on a motorcycle. I'd love to join up when you come through Oklahoma/Texas - can you post the dates that you think you'll be in this part of your ride?

    Cannon Ball? Just got back from there and be warned Cannon Ball (close to burial site of Sacajawea) is in the boonies which is what you want on Ruckuses....on a Sioux Indian Reservation. Keep track of the gas gauge heading north towards Cannon Ball (Hwy 1805 named after Lewis and Clark's return). Sounds like a great trip. Remember it is about the trip not the bike.

    Yeah, it's been a dream for both of us. The United States is such a diverse place with amazing landscapes.

    It would be awesome if you would join. We will be in the Texas area on the 25th of October (give or take a few days).

    Here is a link to our route page with our map and live satellite tracker. https://projectcreate48.wheelingfortheworld.org/our-route/

    Also, when you do decide to join, message us on the Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/WheelingForTheWorld/). That is the best way to get into contact with us.

    Yeah, unfortunately we are going to miss Cannon Ball due to our time constraint (9,000miles in 3 months). We are hoping to spend a night in an Indian Reservation though. Any recommendations?

    yeah, its actually 84 days on the trip not including rest days to create content (videos / FB posts / Guinness World Records documentation, etc) but yeah taking into the full 3 months listed it will be less than 150 per day, taking into account the actual distance traveled over the days we ride, it will range from 120-150miles.

    Hey, yes there will be. These 15 days thus far have been very eventful and packed to the brim. We are going to chisel out time to post as well.

    PS: We are currently in Kenosha, Wisconsin
