Nick Sanders….Prudhoe Bay to Ushuaia.
Fastest world record attempt in progress.
Nick rode around the world in 2005 on an R1 in 19 days and 4 hours. He has now motorcycled around the world 7 times- and circumnavigated the world twice on a bicycle.
He first motorcycled the length of the Pan American route in 1996 when he broke his ankle in the snow the day after setting off and continued to ride the whole length but failed to get the record. It has bugged him ever since.
Nick rode from Calgary to Prudhoe Bay ready to start the record ride. The side stand was kicked up and the first mile began on Saturday 21st August on a YZF-R1.
Not the right bike?
Can he beat the current record of 27 days?
Is he mad?
