BMW Riders to Recreate First Round-the-World Trip of 1912-1913

In 1912-1913 - one hundred years ago - two men rode brand-new Henderson motorcycles around the world. Now, two modern men will attempt to duplicate the trip on BMW motorcycles. Ultimate Motorcycling has an article about the trip just begun. Here's an excerpt:
"Two BMW-riding adventurers from Northern Ireland - author Geoff Hill and former road racer Gary Walker - have set off from Dublin on the first leg of an 18,000 mile round-the-world expedition. The duo will replicate and celebrate the inspirational and ground-breaking adventure undertaken by pioneering Irish-American writer, and silent film director, Carl Stearns Clancy in 1912-1913." -- ultimatemotorcycling.com
