A young man named Colin Furze went from the biggest bonfire record to the world’s longest motorbike one with great ease apparently. No wonder as Colin was determined to set a motorbike world record, not a very expensive one just something fun, enough to make him famous.
The challenge was to build a bike that was longer than 9.6 meters (the previous world record) and simply ride it for 100 meters. His homemade machine, previously a scooter ended up measuring 14 meters and Colin had no problems in riding on a runway at Saltby Airfield in Lincolnshire
Referring at how it ended up doing it, Colin says:
“I had a look through the motorbike world records and all the speed ones seemed far too expensive to try to break, so I thought we go for this - a nice big long one. It’s been a lot of fun.
“It’s taken a lot of building. You start doing something at one end and then you want to do something at the other end and of course your tools are 14 metres away - so you’re contantly walking up and down the garden.”
