It’s rare that a pro-motorcycling story makes it to a news source as big as CNN, which is why I was excited when a buddy sent me a link to CNN about Bridget McCutchen, a 22 year-old from Wisconsin who is attempting to become the youngest person to circumnavigate the world on a motorcycle. What a badass.
If you’re now daydreaming about what that ride would be like, Guiness World Records states that you have to cover at least 24,900 miles and ride across the Equator at least once. Oh – and you can’t stay in the same place for more than two weeks, so you better make sure you have your money saved up as you’re probably not going to be working to pay for the trip while you’re on it! Bridget started her journey in August and she’s riding a Kawasaki Versys-X – an excellent choice for the ride.
She’s also got excellent choices when it comes to gear, as she’s rocking an Aerostich Roadcrafter for the trip. I’d have chosen the same.
