Read story

23-year-old Kane Avellano has received his Guinness World Record certificate after travelling over 32,000 miles around the world in just eight months, becoming the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe by motorcycle solo.

Kane completed his 35 country, six continent trip earlier this year onboard his Triumph Bonneville and managed to raise £2,200 for UNICEF in the process. It wasn't all plain sailing for Kane, who had to battle torrential monsoons in India, blistering heat in the deserts of Australia and powerful storms in South America.

Speaking after his return, Kane said: “The past eight months have been the most exciting in my life. I had the chance to discover what the world really has to offer, to meet many different people along the way and explore their cultures, religions and behaviours, while having an incredible time.

“This will be the first motorcycle circumnavigation to be verified by Guinness in 14 years and I’m really pleased it was done on my Triumph – it’s a bike I’ve shared lots of memories with and was the perfect bike for the job, albeit not your conventional adventure bike.”
