A 6’ 3” man of 240 pounds wants to ride a minibike made for a 7 year old for 500 miles...
World Record Mini Bike Attempt...
What is he thinking?
They say, “growing old is mandatory... but growing up is optional.” As a kid he always wanted to do something big, like break a record of some kind. He and his grade school buddy Mitchel would constantly challenge each other to one-up the other.
Boys will be boys!
At age 50, Will Rodgers of Cunningham, Tennessee will get his chance. Will is going to break the Guinness world record by riding a 50cc mini bike for at least 500 miles down the Natchez Trace over a four day stretch. Beginning March 1st he’ll be leaving the Appleton Harley Davidson dealer in Clarksville, Tennessee and will arrive 4 days later at the Natchez National Historical Park in Natchez, Mississippi.
Pictured is the Honda 2002 XR 50R minibike that he’ll be riding. Check out the video to hear the back story of how this all came about.
And a few of his fellow members will assist him with chase vehicles,
cameras and other forms of support.
Will is a member of the Prayerborne Eagles, a local chapter of the CMA,
