Rider Danell Lynn Sets New Guinness World Record

http://ridermagazine.com/2016/03/29/...-world-record/


Rider Danell Lynn has set a new Guinness World Record for “Longest journey by motorcycle in a single country.” Traveling for a year on her Triumph Bonneville equipped with Giant Loop gear, Lynn covered 48,600 miles while riding throughout the contiguous 48 states of the United States of America. Lynn is the first solo woman motorcyclist to hold the record.
Although her travels covered all 50 states, as well as three Canadian provinces, and totaled more than 53,000 miles from September 2014 through September 2015, Guinness only counted the miles logged within the continental 48 states. Duplicate miles also did not apply to the record and each of the 48,600 miles covered different routes.

And she picked a damned fine ride to do it on. A hard ridden Bonnie Black is a beautiful thing.

Dog Tired had to have been close, but no cigar I guess. Although I wonder if she made it up to the Arctic Circle on her Bonnie.

These bonnevilles aren't real touring machines. I just don't think they're up to the job

Well, ya know, the Bonnie is just a starter bike. She'll be ready to step up soon.

The fairing is probably a National Cycle Plexifairing 3, which National doesn't make for a Bonneville; they make the Plexifairing GT, which is what I have on my T100. I was tempted to order the "3" and take a shot at making it fit, but passed on the idea. The "GT" is a couple of inches shorter and a bit more aerodynamic IMHO.

I went on her blog and she says its a fairing for a Kawasaki Voyager or something, that she adapted.
