After travelling more than 53,000 miles across the country in one year, motorcyclist Danell Lynn has completed her Guinness World Record-breaking attempt on Avon tires.
When she set out on her 2006 Triumph Bonneville for a trip she dubbed, “One Woman, One Bike, One Year” on Sept. 19, 2014, Lynn knew this would be a life-changing journey. What she didn’t know was how quickly the constantly changing weather and road conditions would wear out her tires. That’s where Roadrider tires from Avon Tyres made all the difference.
“The benefits of the Avon tires were outstanding,” stated Lynn. “The Avon Roadrider’s outperformed any other tire I’d tried, providing up to 11,000 miles on the rears, and up to 20,000 miles on the fronts. They proved road worthy through the backcountry roads, as well as the highway, and the ultimate challenge in northern Alaska, the Dalton Highway into the Arctic Circle. I simply could not have been happier with these tires.”
Lynn’s Guinness World Record attempt – in the category of “longest journey by motorcycle in a single country” – was achieved by riding through the 48 contiguous United States. The most recent Guinness World Record in this category was set in 2014 – a 23,760-mile run. Lynn’s trip totaled 53,800 miles and has now been submitted to Guinness World Records for confirmation of the new record.
“When Danell called us to share her story, we were thrilled to provide our proven Roadrider tires for the remainder of her trip,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America. “We celebrate her completion of this incredible journey and her safe return home. We’re proud to have been a small part of her success.”
