is an excerpt only, to give a general idea of requirements for
Motorcycle Ride by a Team
(formally “couple”) – We list this
only as matter of interest, as the complete rules are updated
continuously. Any attempts should be confirmed directly with
GuinnessWorldRecords, prior to commencing
a journey, for the latest updates in requirements.
Fundamentals: For longest motorcycle ride by two or
more riders. The record is based solely on mileage.
Number of countries is irrelevant, as is duration of journey.
The riders should be on separate motorcycles. Only those riders
who have made the entire journey are eligible for the record, and at
least two riders should have made the entire journey.
Any route may be followed, but in keeping with the spirit of
this undertaking, the ride should take in at least five continents,
and a substantial and extensive amount of travel must be done on each
It is permissible to visit a particular country more than once.
However, under no circumstances may the rider double back on
him/herself or ride a ‘circuit’ continuously in order to clock up
The journey should be continuous, with each leg of the journey
beginning at the point at which the previous leg ended.
Public transport (scheduled air, sea, or rail services) may be
used between major stretches of the
route, i.e. between continents or over water. Details of these
journeys must be included with the record claim and the distances
covered by this means do not count towards the record total. The
riders must remain with their motorcycles wherever possible (that is,
travel on the same vessel, aircraft or train). Where this is not
possible the riders must await their motorcycles either at the city
from which they were shipped, or at their destination.
Although it is not necessary for the riders to be on the move
constantly, in keeping with the spirit of this record the riders
should not remain in one place for more than two months.
When not on the move riders may travel ‘locally’ in their
immediate vicinity using other forms of land transport, but may not
travel a significant distance away from their motorcycles (except
during shipping). Under no circumstances may riders fly to any
destination, whether local or national, except when in transit with
their motorcycles between continents etc.
