    Good stuff. Had a great time reading through. Amazing photos! Would like to thank you again for taking the time to meet up with Pete and me and walk us through the entire process. We are now sitting pretty in Luong Prabang, Laos. Been about 1500km so far, but what great riding! Thanks again, and can't wait til your movie & book are released.

    RE: Guinness World Record Awarded to MKRIDE

    Canadian Brothers Set a World Record for their 18,000km Journey Around China on BMW Motorcycles:

    Canadian brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle are honored to receive an award by the Guinness World Records(TM) for their 18,000km odyssey around China on BMW F800GS motorcycles. Their journey will become a documentary film and book entitled The Middle Kingdom Ride.

    On March 9th, 2011 Canadian brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle received a confirmation by the Guinness World Records(TM) that they had indeed set a World Record for their motorcycle journey around China. According to the Guinness World Records(TM) the name of the record they received was for the “Longest Journey by Motorcycle in a Single Country”.

    Canadian brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle completed their epic motorcycle journey by returning back to Shanghai on Sunday October 17th, 2010, after 65 days on the road circumnavigating China on their BMW F800GS motorcycles. Their journey was a unique one, as they have become the first riders to fully circumnavigate China by motorcycle in one single journey.

    During their remarkable 17,674km odyssey the brothers have encountered some of the most intense changes in culture, weather, altitude and terrain that exist in the world. They tackled heavy rains, flooding, landslides, freak hailstorms, extreme altitude (above 5000m/16,000ft), sand, gravel, thousands of kilometers of road construction and even bureaucratic / military interference.

    Colin and Ryan intend to produce both a documentary film and a written book on their experiences in China, which have been far from regular. Anytime someone puts him or herself out there, into the wild, and opens themselves up to the experiences of such a vast and unique country one can’t help but encounter moments of danger, humor, sadness, gratification and personal gain and setback. Their journey will prove to be both colorful and dramatic, both intense and fulfilling.

    Colin and Ryan Pyle are brothers from Toronto, Canada. But that’s about all they have in common. Ryan has spent the last decade in China building his career as a Documentary Photographer. Colin stayed closer to home, in Toronto, and built up, and sold, his own successful currency trading company. Together they plan to showcase much of China’s change and development from factory to farm. The general purpose of the trip is to put China on display. To explore the visual and cultural wonders that is China. With a massive population, crowded cities, abundant minorities and its stunning natural landscape; China offers a traveler an experience like no other. Colin and Ryan have titled their project, “The Middle Kingdom Ride”, as China’s historical name was once The Middle Kingdom.

    Ryan and Colin will be raising money for the SEVA Foundation during their journey. SEVA, is a San Francisco based charity that has, for more than 30 years, been serving people around the world who are struggling for health, cultural survival and sustainable communities.

    You can follow The Middle Kingdom Ride at MKRIDE.com, FACEBOOK, YouTube and Twitter.

    The Middle Kingdom Ride would have never happened without our amazing sponsors: Mandarin House Language School, BMW China, Touratech, The Tomson Group, Airhawk, Pelican Products, Kodak, Oakley, Cardo Systems, and Lowe Pro.

    Wow awesome Guinness World Record, congrats! I don't do Facebook so I can't bump you there. I observed years ago Facebook to be "spamming, attention whoring, and stalking has never been so easy. Just point and click!" said in TV-shop voice. Thus I saw it is not my thing and never went to hype.

    Wow! Congratulations Ryan & Colin ... Yeah Canada, eh! Truly an accomplishment.

    Now, you must realize that you've thrown down the gauntlet, of course ... maybe your record will be challenged by some crazy JH600 (and JH600B) riders? Takers?

    Don't worry, though - my picture-taking ability is ... well ... hmmmm ... I am a much better hockey player.

    Again, congratulations!

    Not wanting to take their record away but in my opinion the record should certainly be challenged by bikes made in China

    Ah, that's what the Guinness records are all about ... the longest submarine sandwich, the biggest block of cheese, etc ... are always under challenge.

    What can never be challenged, however, is the fact that they actually did it ... and they were the first! Can't beat that!

    Eh, no, the guinnes world record was about "The longest continuous journey by motorcycle within a single country is 16,240 km (10,091.05 miles) by Ryan and Colin Pyle (both Canada), who toured China between 16 August and 17 October 2010."

    Before that there was a similar world record too, the lenght of the trip inside the country was just shorter.


    Edit: Or who knows if there was such Guinness world record. Maybe the trip was first to be acknowledged. However there has been similar things done whether they has been taken as world record or not.
