My grandfather was a huge influence in my life, and I will truly miss him, growing up he told me the story of his cross county motorcycle journey a hundred times. Mostly the story would come up when I told him I wanted a Harley. He would ask if I had ever ridden a “hard Tail” and proceed with this story. Along with countless other tails of adventure. I was pleasantly surprised at his memorial service to receive a copy of his “wild ride” included with the reception program. My grandfather had suffered from alsimers for the last 10 years, and this is a recollection of his journey transcribed by my grandmother Kitty about 8 years ago.
