Episode 179 - Interview with Tim Masterson of the Wyman Project 

Hello Boys and Girls!!

Welcome to another wonderful interview episode!! Time now for some motorcycle history!! My guest today is the president of the George A. Wymann Memorial Project, Mr. Tim Masterson. Tim tells us all about the first man to ride a motorcycle across the United States back in 1903, George Wymann. An amazing and fascinating story about a young man who took off on his Motorbicycle from San Francisco to New York and he did it in 50 days.

Here are some amazing links to this historical event.
