    Are there any world records for motorized bikes?

    Fastest motorized bike?
    World longest, world smallest, worlds tallest?

    How about most distance travelled on a motorized bike? I'd like to ride one across the country and be the first.

    George Wyman did it in 1903 (1st motor vehicle of any kind to do so) and Rif Addams (uncle_punk13) did it in 2003...i suppose if you hurry you could be #3.

    my current long-ride is only about the pleasure, i'm in no hurry to get anywhere or set any records...however, i do have a recorded time at the bonneville salt flats of 32.4mph with a 32cc GEBE/Tanaka, so i'll claim that "record" until someone does better on the books with 35cc or under.

    While both drives across the country stand..(along with many double dipper bicyclist...they dip one wheel in the atlantic then ride till they can dip it in the pacific) could ride around the country, following the boarder all the way around. Or you could still be the first to ride across the country, if you include Alaska...but that would require a ride through Canada.

    of course, some standard for documenting and instrumentation would be required in order to establish a true "record" by definition...are there any current guiness entries for MB's i wonder?

    Turbo charged, EFI Tanaka. That would be interesting to say the least.

    there are probably lots of undocumented cross country MB rides, especially since motorcycles evolved from motorized bicycles...

    Modern MBs aren't creating history, they are RE-creating history :)
