Motorcyclist - - Contents -

1. “Wash­ing­ton State to An­chor­age, Alaska, and back on a Honda Dream in 1971. I rode con­tin­u­ously, ex­cept when I would pull over and pass out.”

BILL RY­DER HELENA, MT “It was 1,100 kilo­me­ters in six days on a Chi­nese Mus­tang Shin­eray 150cc in the Mon­go­lian steppe… alone with my tent.”

PIERRE CHRISTIN AN­NECY, FRANCE 3. “Rid­ing the pro Iron­man class for the 50th Baja 1000. I rode for a com­bat vet­eran team of The War­rior Built Foun­da­tion and was on the bike for 27 hours be­fore I crashed out at mile 607.”

CHRIS COLMENERO AN­CHOR­AGE, AK “Two thou­sand kilo­me­ters from Lyon, France, to Stock­holm, Swe­den, in two days on Ger­many’s au­to­bahn. My 2007 BMW R1200GS had squared-off tires by the end.”

CHRISTOPHE OPITZ BRUS­SELS, BEL­GIUM “Ore­gon to Alaska on a 2009 Yamaha R6— and not the comfy S model either!”

BRYAN JAMES CAL­HOON PORT­LAND, OR “Eighty miles in the rain and hail on a ’73 Honda CB550 with an 8-inch seat pan made of sheet me­tal.”

KAT MAGUIRE EDGE­WOOD, NM “I rode round-trip from Los An­ge­les to Cabo San Lu­cas with a peanut tank (2.1 gal­lons). Then I changed it out for a 3.2-gal­lon tank, and rode from Los An­ge­les to Stur­gis. Hell yes!”
