That's no mean feet.  ;D Most double amputees would not think of getting on a bike.

I'm interested to know what the distance was because there are so many unofficial records on the net.
You can never get lost - you just reach a different destination.
Every road has to lead somewhere - even if it is a dead-end.

 Dié keer kon selfs nie uile, hase en meerkatte Bushy McKelvey keer om ’n nuwe wêreldrekord in die middel van die Vrystaat op te stel nie.

Die middeljarige motorfietsryer van Pietermaritzburg se derde rekordpoging op die Phakisa-renbaan naby Welkom was suksesvol toe hy ’n afstand van 3 251,48 km in 24 uur om die baan afgelê het – dít sonder bene.

McKelvey het sy twee bene in twee ongelukke verloor, maar besluit dit sal hom nie onderkry in sy rekordaanslag waarmee hy geld vir mense met verspreide sklerose insamel nie.

Sy vorige twee pogings het misluk. In die eerste een het hy geval toe dit begin reën het. In die tweede aanslag was daar nie genoeg bande vir die motorfiets nie. Dié keer het hy omtrent tien stelle bande gebruik.

Alles het foutloos verloop.

Hy het Dinsdagnag 24:00 met die aanslag begin en die rekord presies 24 uur later laat spat.

Die vorige rekord was 3 250 km.

Teen ’n gemiddelde snelheid van sowat 200 km/h op Phakisa se 2,5 km lange ovaal baan moes hy in die nag op die uitkyk wees vir uile wat muise jag en hulle nie aan die voortsnellende motorfiets steur nie. Ook hase en meerkatte is volop om die baan.

Hy was boudseer en waar die kunsbene aan sy bene vasgeheg word, was dit maar pynlik.

Sy ondersteuningspan was net so bly en toe die vonkelwynproppe om 24:00 skiet, het hy geweet die derde keer is in die kol.

■ Mense wat wil bydra vir die stryd teen verspreide sklerose kan die woord “oranje” na 41000 SMS. Dit kos R25.

This including fuel stops, tyre changes etc .

Well done  :thumleft:

He was on Ignition a few weeks ago on the bike show, last time he dropped the BMW LC in the rain and did not make it. This year he used a Honda 1200 adventure bike. This is great news and I am sure there will be a follow up on the program.

Respect 

Ca you imagine the concentration it takes to do that kind of average speed for 24hours around a racetrack?

Incredible.

Well done Bushy!

lock the throttle and hang on .

Bad enough keeping constant speed up on the open road at times without the mind wandering off, let alone round a race track for hours on end.
