In 1915, Bud Baker and Dick O'Brien made a 5 month journey across the US, riding tandem on a 1915 Indian.

Reminds me of the time my buddy's Moto Guzzi broke down in Daytona and he had to ride back to NC on the back of my Sportster. That was only about 500 miles and it was a shitty ride for both of us. I don't know how that guy could have sat on the back of that Indian for 10,000 miles.

Perhaps Bud Baker and Dick O'Brien were just nicknames...wink wink
