Adam Frasca has set the new Motorcycle Cannonball Record from NYC to LA in 37:07

That's ~2,800 miles in just over 37 hours, at ~75 mph moving average.

A short video of his arrival can be found here.

Yeah, those guys are nuts...

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

This does not seem to be related to "Luxury" touring.

Which is why it was posted on Chit Chat, "a forum for general, off topic discussions that do not fit in the other forums."

I've done many rides that cover 36 hours or more and when done right on a well-setup bike, it can be quite comfortable.
