    In 1919 after the end of World War 1, RAF Captain C. K. Shepard travels to New York and purchases a 4 cylinder Henderson motorcycle and rides it across America, covering ~4500miles.
    This at a time where only roads in the center of the bigger cities are sealed and everything else is at best a horse and cart track.

    If you think you’re a hard core adventurer check out this ride, complete with having to manufacture engine components out of wood.
