Breaking a Guinness World record AND being a part of Aidan's Posse

   Some of you remember me breaking a world record 2 years ago by riding a 50cc mini bike from Louisville, KY to Sturgis, SD. It was a distance of 1,470 miles and took 9 days. Since then that record has been broke by about 100 miles so it was only natural that I attempt it one more time. The details are what is really going to stand this trip from all the others though.
  First of all I will be riding with my friend Tim Ford. No we won't be riding on the same minibike. We will each have our own stock Yamaha 50cc minibikes. We also will be riding together unassisted in that we will NOT have a chase vehicle the whole way.  That is the plan however according to Guinness rules, it makes no difference whether or not a support team is incorporated.

The distance we have decided is coast to coast. Yes, that's right, we're going to ride from Daytona Beach Florida ( the day after Bike Week) to San Diego, California. a back road distance of 3000 miles. We will be taking 3 weeks to accomplish this.
We are also going to do this for one of the greatest causes ever. Aidan Jack Seeger and The Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation.  On this ride we will spread the message about what ALD is and to advocate for ALD newborn screening in every state. We hope to carry some proposed legislation to several of the state capitals which we pass through. We also are going to attend stops along the way and have fund raisers to help with the Foundation and all the work they do.
We are gathering sponsors for this ride now and scheduling stops onto our course ( which is subject to change as we add new events). We also plan on having individuals pledge by the mileage that we accrue. There will be a page on the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation website for donations.
Much more info will be posted in the very near future. I want to thank Indian Larry Motorcycles, my good friends at Biltwell, Rick Fairless Strokers in Dallas and fellow Texan, Buddy Johnson for their help getting this started. Of course all my regular sponsors on my sponsor page listed here, are always helping me out making it possible to this and all my other projects.
