Hat Tip: The Original Transcontinental Bike Trip

Credit where credit is due.

In 1903, a fellow by the name of George Wyman became the first motorcyclist to traverse the country. Riding a 1.25 horsepower, 90cc motorcycle and braving all sorts of elements in his 50-day journey, George blazed a trail—and we're eternally grateful.

So...dear, George...we'll pour one out for you on the road. Good man.

For more info on George's journey, check out his page at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
