but not necessarily BEYOND. Perhaps someone on another continent can out distance him but I truely have my doubts. If so I'll GLADLY annoint that person as his successor. 

This rider is none other than Ofreen aka Greg. He did an amazing 3554 miles aboard his long time 1975 CB750F with an astonishing 130,000+ miles on the clock without a hiccup in cold and snow, in the spring and again the fall, as well as gorgeous weather across 2 long stretches/regions throughout the western United States much of it by himself. Without Greg's love of his 750F, his love of riding and Godzilla this Relay could have well succombed to defeat. I bow at your feat/feet sir and I'm glad we met. I now consider you a true friend and gentleman  :D 

"OK, my part in this is finished, so I'll chime in with the combined mileages for the Nevada-Utah leg, and the Montana-Wyoming-Idaho-Oregon portion.  Total Godzilla miles are 1954 1754.  All miles turned in during the course of the relay are 3554."

So, the strategy is to lie to people you are asking for help?

I think I'll be busy going for a ride.

Good luck!

Yikes, I just did the math and New Zealand is only 1306 miles (2102 klm)from Cape Reinga to Bluff.
Not much chance of us Kiwis taking your crown Ofreen! ;D
Good on ya mate.....any chance you'd like to ride a few legs for us?  I can offer you half the South Island leg ;)
I think the thing I most like about motorcycling is the speed at which my brain must process information at to avoid the numb skulls who are eating pies, playing the ukulele, applying make-up etc in the comfort of their airconditioned armchairs as they make random attempts to kill me!!!!!!!

Outstanding!  Well done.  I give my appreciation to all of the people who have been part of this rally.  North America has been blessed by the presence of such a devoted group of men and women who have given so much to maintain these old horses.  My hat's off to you all.  I am proud to have been a part of it.  I made some good friends and and had some great rides.  I look forward to doing something even bigger.  SOHC Sturgis, anyone?

Thanks Sam.  I don't know who had the shortest stint, but you probably had the leg with the highest average speed over the whole leg.

Yes, David M. did less than one mile. (We insisted he at least turn the wheels a few times with GZ, as a reward for his help with the relay. 8))
