Carl Reese traveled from Los Angeles to New York in 38 hours and 48 minutes, becoming the fastest man in history to cover this historic distance. You can now be a part of his awesome adventure by helping him and his team raise enough money to bring their Iron Riders effort to fruition.

Iron Riders is a documentary movie that tells the story of motorcycle cannonball records from the days of Erwin "Cannonball" Baker and his 11-day transcontinental journey aboard an Indian motorcycle up to the present days.

Obviously, a hefty part of the movie will be dedicated to Carl Reese's recent US crossing using the BMW K1600GT, alongside with all the ups and downs, and moments of crisis and joy.You're not doing this only for the record holders, but also for the veterans
No less than 20% of any profits made from this film will be directed towards the Motorcycle Relief Project, a charity helping combat veterans.

Iron Riders will showcase a century of transcontinental records and Carl will also be traveling across the USA and visiting BMW Motorrad dealerships, giving talks where asked to, so you may even have the chance to meet him in person.

"We have a solid film team assembled in Los Angeles to get the project completed. Film team that includes Peter Gray, Matt Bartona, Indra Bartona, Delaney Ashley, and special consulting assistance from former Tribeca Film winners," Carl says. He also adds that any donations, no matter how small, are a valuable helping hand.

The campaign was moved from Indiegogo and is now supported by GoFundMe, so if you feel like you want to be a part of the Iron Riders, you know what to do.
