Cannonball Run 1919

Book Synopsis


"The year was 1919. There was no paved road system across the United States. Gasoline stations were scarce. Cars were few. Horse and wagons were the main modes of transportation. And two adventurous young men undertook a transcontinental motorcycle journey.

The diary of Erling J. Hangerud illustrates their ride from Portland, Oregon, to New York City via the Yellowstone Trail on a 1918 Indian Powerplus and a 1918 Harley-Davidson. Their mishaps and successes take us back to that era, along with vignettes describing significant historical details relevant to their journey.

Join Erling Hangerud and Fred (Fritz) Kunkel on their ride across the continental United States, and then ponder that in 2018 more than 130 million motorcycles were manufactured and sold worldwide. Motor-cycles provide economical transportation and efficient fuel savings to millions of people all over the world. They also provide jobs. A percentage of the sale of this book will be used to fund a scholarship program for young people who aspire to make a career out of supporting the motorcycle industry."
