Following George A Wyman: Retracing the First Transcontinental Roadtrip

In 1903, George A Wyman attempted something crazy. And in 2016, John Flores did the same thing on an electric motorcycle. Enjoy a night of these two tales spanning 113 years.

In 1903, George Wayman became the first person to cross the country with a motorized vehicle by riding his motorcycle from San Francisco to New York City along train tracks(!) and dirt roads on his wooden spoked "motor bicycle." The trip was so grueling that he was in bandages for weeks afterward. For some crazy reason in 2016, John Flores decided to follow the exact same route on a Zero DSR electric motorcycle.

John is a photojournalist for RoadRUNNER Magazine (known for their stunning imagery and engaging articles), and his presentation includes truly amazing tales and stunning photos from both journeys.
