Phil Comar of Adrian Michigan is hoping the Guiness Book of World Records will certify his attempt at the longest no-hands ride in history after he rode 300 miles Sunday October 10,2010 using only his knees and  body to steer his Harley-Davidson from Makinaw City Michigan to Sylvania Ohio.

Comar rigged up a special auxiliary gas tank to enable him to make the trip without stopping for fuel.  According to Visor Down, Comar was hoping to raise $4000 during the ride for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, in memory of his father, who died from the disease.
