Carl Reese, Los Angeles-Manhattan Cannonball Run Record Breaker (among others). August 2015.
How about a 2,829 Mile Test Drive?
In August 2015, Californian Carl Reese completed a 2,829 mile drive from Los Angeles to New York City on his BMW K 1600 GT in 38 hours and 49 minutes, making him the sixth person to hold the solo record for the famous "Cannonball Run."
We did say BMW K 1600 GT, right?
That's one driver on two wheels, not four.
In development, a documentary about Carl's history-making ride - we invite you to preview it on YOUTUBE for a sneak peek at his experiences and challenges.
We are proud to be associated with Carl's accomplishment - if only on the back-end. Unknown to us, Carl had selected the Sargent World Sport Performance Seat and EM-5 Backrest for his K 1600 GT mount. He had this to say about it:
"I bought the Sargent [World Sport] Seat for my epic world record ride.
I understand that not everyone needs to ride from LA to NYC in 38 hours
straight. However everyone can appreciate the world record comfort!"
