Motorcycle Cannonball Rider #32   Dieter Eckel – 1913 BSA

Thinking sensibly about it… it seems a hard task to me! But what choice have I got? I can’t let my wife go on her own!

I started my motorcycling life at the age of 12 and, genetically conditioned (my father had Nortons), I always had English bikes, specializing in BSAs. Riding them through summer and winter, I was finally spoiled by getting my first car 8 years ago – the start of comfort. For some discomfort and to get trained for the run, we had now started a long term fitness program… and we will start it again in springtime!        ~ Dieter Eckel
