After travelling more than 53,000 miles across the country in one year, motorcyclist Danell Lynn has completed her Guinness World Record-breaking attempt on Avon tires.
When she set out on her 2006 Triumph Bonneville for a trip she dubbed, “One Woman, One Bike, One Year” on Sept. 19, 2014, Lynn knew this would be a life-changing journey. What she didn’t know was how quickly the constantly changing weather and road conditions would wear out her tires. That’s where Roadrider tires from Avon Tyres made all the difference.
“The benefits of the Avon tires were outstanding,” stated Lynn. “The Avon Roadrider’s outperformed any other tire I’d tried, providing up to 11,000 miles on the rears, and up to 20,000 miles on the fronts. They proved road worthy through the backcountry roads, as well as the highway, and the ultimate challenge in northern Alaska, the Dalton Highway into the Arctic Circle. I simply could not have been happier with these tires.”
Lynn’s Guinness World Record attempt – in the category of “longest journey by motorcycle in a single country” – was achieved by riding through the 48 contiguous United States. The most recent Guinness World Record in this category was set in 2014 – a 23,760-mile run. Lynn’s trip totaled 53,800 miles and has now been submitted to Guinness World Records for confirmation of the new record.
“When Danell called us to share her story, we were thrilled to provide our proven Roadrider tires for the remainder of her trip,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America. “We celebrate her completion of this incredible journey and her safe return home. We’re proud to have been a small part of her success.”
Mustang Seats is dropping in on the 2016 Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS) at the Javits Center with some surprises this weekend. Look for local daredevil Doug Danger to land at the Mustang display in NYC, along with our staff of seat experts and some other surprises at the IMS tour stop this weekend. Spanning 10 cities and stretching from October 2015 to February 20-21, 2016, Mustang will be at every venue this season.
“In addition to treating people to the finest seats in the house, we are thrilled that our neighborhood daredevil Doug Danger will be channeling his inner Evel Knievel and landing at the Mustang display in the Marketplace section of the show when he is not on the main stage,” says Mustang’s business development director, Marilyn Simmons. Of course the real star of the show will be the seats that Mustang handcrafts in their historic Three Rivers, MA factory.
“Come by the display and sit on one of our ‘seat horses’ to get a feel for the most comfortable motorcycle seat you have ever sat on! Not only does this give a rider a better feel for the seat, but we have even positioned some foot pegs on the seat horses so that a passenger can feel the difference when riding two-up,” says Simmons. IMS show-goers should look for the brand new Mustang kiosk in the Marketplace section.
Featured at each stop on the IMS Tour, the Marketplace is an interactive retail space for motorcycle parts and accessories. This unique show-within-a-show offers attendees the opportunity to touch, test and/or try the newest top parts, accessories and gear while interacting with factory specialists from leading manufacturers.
The destination may be the ride, but the overall experience is even better when the pilot and the passenger are comfortable! Drop in at the Mustang display and discover the Mustang difference for yourself at the Big Apple IMS event. See the full schedule of International Motorcycle Shows at:
Just in time for online Christmas shopping, J&P Cycles, was recently featured in a Business Insider report which listed the top 25 retailers with the best customer service. It’s an illustrious group of retailers too, with the likes of Apple, Nordstrom, Zappos, LL Bean included as well. J&P has been dedicated to optimizing the customer experience since its fledgling days in the late ‘70s. Founded by John and Jill Parham, J&P Cycles provides motorcycle parts and accessories through its mail-order catalog, online retail site and at its Destination Daytona Super Store in Ormand Beach, Florida.
The Business Insider report cites a Stella Service survey which sought to determine which companies provided the best customer service from August through October 2015. Telephone and email service, shipping and return policies were all evaluated in the survey. In the overall ranking, J&P finished 24th of 25, was 10th of all companies surveyed in the chat-based response service area, 14th overall in shipping and 18th in returns. We would have to say that is pretty darn good. Way to go J&P Cycles!
