Buck Perley and Amy Mathieson logged 29,500 kilometers over 131 days of riding aboard their CFMOTO 650TK motorcycles to set a record in the Guinness Book of World Records.

On Nov. 27, the duo arrived at CFMOTO headquarters in Hangzhou, completing their epic adventure that gave them record of Longest Motorcycle Journey in a Single Country. They rode through 27 provinces in China through grasslands, deserts and mountains. The previous record was set in the U.S., at 29,034 kilometers.

“Even though we rode 650TK for such a long time and miles, there are only tires changed and no other problems met. Especially the 650TK’s engine is really good, very powerful. It helps us a lot in this journey,” Perley said.

With the theme of “Love journey riding around China,” Perley and Mathieson rode the 650TK counter-clockwise through China and supported the charity organization “Free Lunch For Children” on the road. CFMOTO employees actively participated in donations for “Free Lunch For Children” when the pair arrived at the CFMOTO headquarters.

They have fought over all the difficulties in their journey. What is more, the purpose of their riding activity is for donating money to the charity organization ‘Free Lunch For Children,’ so here I call on all of you to donate your love to our children who could not enjoy a good lunch as their peers.”
