Adventure motorcycle riders, particularly RTW riders know all about riding long distances discovering different countries, cultures and scenery. RTW riders like one of my favorite, Tiffany Coates Open link in a new window, have only one thing on their minds, and that is go to the next country to discover it.

But for many you don't need to leave your country to ride many miles and discover new things. The current world record for the longest distance covered on a motorcycle trip is held not in The Netherlands, nor in Monaco, but in China.

Buck Perley (USA) and Amy Mathieson (UK) have travelled over 146 days through China, covering a total of 33,357 kilometer trip (20,731 miles). They left last year on July 19th and returned on December 11th.

They did ride a road monster like a BMW GS or Honda Gold Wing, but did the trip on a CFMoto CF Moto 650TRCF Moto 650TR (a Honda Pan European clone). They did manage to see amazing parts of an immense country, like the Everest Base Camp, the plains of Mongolia or the Xinjang Desert.

Both riders even managed to raise $10,000 for a charity in China that aims to feed children in rural schools in China.

You can read all about their exploits and marvel at the many photos of the trip at their web site called The Great Ride of China Open The Great Ride of China link in a new window. With this ride, they'll manage to get into the Guinness Book of World Records.
