Today we take a look at the strange side of motorcycle-related world records
Khodrocar - Motorcycle technology and engineering is constantly improving, and with them come faster, better handling, and more durable and reliable machines. These advancements allow the envelope to be pushed a little further every year, with world records routinely being broken in categories pertaining to speeds or distances. As impressive as those are, that’s not what we’re gonna be looking at today. Instead we’ll be shifting our attention to the, let’s say, less orthodox world-records, almost all of which you probably didn’t know existed, and for good reason. They’re really weird. So without further ado let’s get into it.

Longest Motorcycle

There are dozens of world-records for "longest” in motorcycling. Longest distance ridden in a single trip, longest wheelie, longest stoppie, etc. But on March 12, 2013, Bharatsihn Parmar of India entered the world record books with the longest motorcycle on the planet with a 54 foot long bike. Talk about a wheelbase.

Longest Time Balancing a Motorcycle on Head

This is another weird one, though it’s definitely worth mentioning that this is actually a contested record that multiple determined weirdos have risked their neck over. The latest record holder is Gerard Jessie of the Philippines who on May 15, 2015, balanced a bike atop his head for 14.93 seconds, setting a new word record.

Youngest Person to Ride a Motorcycle in "The Globe of Death”

Another one for America. While I want to give the parents shit for this one, the kid here happens to be a seventh generation circus performer. In fact, then-four-and-a-half-year-old Maximus Garcia—who on August 16, 2006 became the youngest person to ride a bike in the "Globe of Death”—travels with his family performing the stunt on his little Suzuki eleven months out of the year. This was one really cool little kid.

Longest Continuous Ride Standing on the Seat of a Motorcycle

A moving motorcycle wants to stay upright. This makes standing on the seat of a moving bike easier than you’d think, but this becomes a much taller order when the stunt is carried out for miles at a time without ever touching the handlebars or sitting down. On December 5, 2015, Ratnesh Pandey of India set a new world record when he stood on the seat of his Honda Unicorn for 20 miles (32.3km).
