According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the longest distance for a motorcycle pilot was attained in October 2014 by a South African named Matthew (Bushy) McKelvey at the Phakisa Freeway racetrack in Welkom. In a 24-hour period Bushy rounded the defunct MotoGP circuit 1,297 times for a total of 2023.5 miles. By the way, Bushy is a double-amputee from a hit-and-run accident in 1999 (notice his boot?).

UPDATE: Just over a week after we published this post, Carl Reese has broken McKelvey’s record, logging 2,119 miles in less than 24 hours on his BMW K1600GT.
