The 1922 Henderson

Being a youtube dinosaur, it took me a while.

But this is now posted. On the forecourt at Joe Duffy's.

I'm very interested in riding the SF to NYC leg next year. Is there a specific thread or site for that?? I searched but did not find anything. I live near SF, recently retired, and have a suitable bike so the ride seems ideal. Have done some MC touring and a lot by bicycle, have beed an avid two wheel rider since the '70's....

"FRAZIER PARKED
Dr. Gregory W. Frazier, Chief of the World Adventure Affairs Desk for CITY BIKE, has been granted sabbatical leave from his desk duties. He will be continuing his research on the transcendental relationship between adventure motorcycling, extreme martial arts and the miteration by globalization through LIBOR rates on underdeveloped countries. We’re expecting him to resume his yarn-spinning and pontification in the spring." (Published in CITY BIKE, October, 2012)

Hendersons Across USA

While scouting the route for the USA leg of The Clancy Centenary Ride across Montana I was nearly run over by Indians....Indian Motocycles. They were on a group ride across the USA that included numerous Henderson Motorcycles.

The photo below is of a 1925 Henderson that earlier in the year had scored 99.5 points in a judging contest. The owner later experienced a front tire blow out at speed (45 mph) and went down. He offered me to "take it for a spin," figuring it was no longer 99.5 points and I would not hurt it. For the whole story on the event you can read my view here at Cannonball Endurance Run: Paying Homage to Antique Iron | Accelerate Online - Official Publication of Riders of Kawasaki

Can't Wait to Join in.

I've taken to calling this particular circumnavigation the C3-Ride (C-cubed - Carl Clancy Centennial Ride). We're looking forward to connecting with the flotilla around Cleveland and continuing onto Buffalo. I find it fascinating that it's only been 100 years since Mr. Clancy was able to perform his wonderful accomplishment.

Keep up the good work, Sun Chaser!

100 Year Ride Still a "GO"

March 24 should see the two BMW UK sponsored riders departing Belfast to Glasgow as they start following Clancy's original route around the world. June 2 will find them in the wharf area of San Francisco, CA with other adventurists departing for Sacramento on that day. The rest of the USA schedule remains as posted above.

As the Chief of The World Adventure Affairs Desk for the famed San Francisco based CITY BIKE magazine I will be coming off my sabbatical and plan to be there with my Brownie Camera to record the San Francisco Start, and then join them and others globe wandering celebrants across the USA and eventually into the bowels of New York City June 21 from where the global loop started 100 years ago.
