Bend, OR – Adventure-proof packing systems and gear company Giant Loop is proud to announce that sponsored rider Danell Lynn has set a new Guinness World Record for “Longest journey by motorcycle in a single country.” Traveling for a year on her Triumph Bonneville equipped with Giant Loop gear, Lynn covered 48,600 miles while riding throughout the contiguous 48 states of the Unite States of America. Lynn is the first solo woman motorcyclist to hold the record.

Although her travels actually covered all 50 states, as well as three Canadian provinces, totaling more than 53,000 miles from September 2014 through September 2015, Guinness only counted the miles logged within the continental 48 states. Duplicate miles also did not apply to the record; each of the 48,600 miles covered different routes.
“Giant Loop was my first and only bag choice as the ride began its planning,” says Lynn. “I am so pleased with it all: The ease of use, and complete dryness of my gear through downpours, will keep me coming back to Giant Loop.”
“We are very proud to have played a role in Danell’s incredible journey,” says Harold Olaf Cecil, owner and founder of Giant Loop. “Daily use really puts our products to a degree of testing most riders would take many years to equal. Danell is also personally dedicated to positive change in the world, and her spirit matches our mission as a brand and company. Well done, Danell!”
