Congratulations to Carl Reese on the LA2NY Motorcycle Record

In November I discussed the 11 new cross country records that were set in 2015. It was an epic year for the idea of Cannonball and the pursuit of extreme distance speed driving feats. One of them I had listed was “Motorcycle NY to LA Record – TBA.” Well, yesterday it was announced.

Carl Reese, who also holds various Tesla/EV cross country records set the motorcycle record from Los Angeles to New York with a time of 38 hours 49 minutes. It is an astonishing feat of endurance, planning, and skill. Bravo sir.
