VIDEO: Melons… rocks…“Wingnut”… what 3hrs a night has done to Nick Sanders

Nick Sanders has returned from a triple-length-of-the-Americas expedition, a journey he describes as "the hardest" of his career. After leading a group of paying customers from the bottom of Argentina to the USA, the adventure rider travelled directly to Alaska to begin a timed 29,300-mile Prudhoe Bay-Ushuaia-Prudhoe Bay double crossing. He completed the feat in just 46 days. Often riding through...

Why????

I've got respect for Nick doing this but I just can't understand WHY. Going to see something is great. Riding continuously and saying you've seen very little because you didn't  take time out is missing something, isn't it??

I’ve sort of got to agree with spondonste and doctortonque. I’ve no idea why he seems to want to turn adventure riding into a competition?

“You’ll not find any other motorcycle adventurer who will come close to this” well that’s probably because they don’t see the point.

And as for being “able to take myself closer to the edge of exhaustion. I’m not sure what lies beyond that edge…” well an accident seems to be the most likely answer. Fine if it only involves yourself, not so clever if it involves someone else.

If “extreme biking” in South America is your bag, if you want to ride long distances every day with little sleep, and then compare your achievements against those of others why not enter the Dakar?

to flowersofmanc- don't confuse me with yourself- i've never 'messed about' with anybody..just saying that taking yourself to the edge of exhaustion on a bike on any  road is completly f..kin' dangerous and stupid..if you think it's smart, then it's not me who's the ignorant morose c..t

nick ''on the edge'' sanders

Also can't see the point in what he does, but if he's happy and doesn't hurt anyone let him carry on, wish i had the time and opportunity to see half the countries he sleep walks through
