    This is a link one of the guys on another forum posted about the new Cannonball ride website.
    The story is of George Wyman's perilous ride from California to New York. This is the book he wrote.
    I read the whole thing, fascinating bits of history too.
    You guys who like adventure will love this.

    as our vehicles become more popular, old george is finally getting the recognition he deserves...the cannonball thing looks like a heck of a good time. for those not aware, our own uncle_punk13 reenacted the historic ride in 2003 : http://www.motoredbikes.com/showthread.php?t=4217
