Yamaha Motor Corp. USA, which has a corporate office in Marietta, congratulated Paul Pelland, also known as Longhaulpaul, for setting his third world record by riding a 2018 Yamaha Star Venture for 24 straight hours on a dynamometer, while raising $18,500 for Multiple Sclerosis charity, MS Views and News Inc.

The Longhaulpaul “Nonstop to Nowhere” event was broadcast live on Facebook in a telethon-style fundraiser as Pelland rode his 2018 Yamaha Star Venture motorcycle at freeway speeds on a dynamometer for 24 straight hours with no rest breaks or stops. Pelland traveled an estimated 1,674 miles.

The event featured Pelland playing guitar, eating bugs and raffling $3,600 worth of prizes, all while seated on the motorcycle.

Thousands of viewers from around the world tuned in throughout the broadcast, with hundreds of donors contributing $18,500 to MS Views and News. The donations will fund educational programs for people living with Multiple Sclerosis.

After being diagnosed with MS himself, Pelland began a million-mile journey raising awareness and funds as he toured the country on his motorcycle. After six years, he has ridden 350,000 miles, raised $150,000 for charity and has shared his story with over 250 audiences across the country.

I’ve been seeing for several years now what Long Hall Paul has been doing to raise money for the MS community.

Once again I would like to say thank you both Yamaha supporting Long Haul Paul and Long Haul Paul please keep up the great work.
