That first night alone under the stars is a right of passage in America.

I don't know if we make people like that any more. In the 30's my dad bought a Harley in Oakland, Ca, and learned to ride it on his way back to his job in Nevada. I wonder what would happen to a guy with a shotgun draped across his handlebars nowadays.

I scrolled down looking before I posted anything about the M109. I can't believe I could have 3 Grande Lattes instead of this wasted time.

Great story Fred, thanks for sharing. I always wonder why I think of getting a big "tourer" to do a long solo trip when I have a couple of bikes your grand-father would have thought were overkill in 1917.

Speaking of, get out there RIGHT NOW... The Orionid meteor shower is peaking right now for those away from city lights and awake. Make your first night, the best night ever http://www.serve.com/wh6ef/comets/me.../orionids.html

Well done. I think I've gotten choked up here, thinking of my dad. Thanks.

My question is, what happened to the bike?



If it is still out there, someone will want to read about its history.
