We are thrilled to partner with Fred Wacker for History on the Move. Fred is one of 100 participants in "Motorcycle Cannonball 2016: The Race of the Century," a coast-to-coast motorcycle run starting in Atlantic City on September 10 and ending in San Diego on September 25. The kicker: only motorcycles manufactured in 1916 or earlier can participate!

Fred will be on his 1913 Indian motorcycle, the very same model used by WWI couriers dashing across the frontlines. Fred’s Lucky 13 team is rounded out by Mechanic and Pursuit Person Joe Walano, Fabricator and Machinist Frank Schiddel and the Machine Shop of John Schnittker of Land Air Associates.

Come hear about the Motorcycle Cannonball journey and view images of sights from across the country, meet the Lucky 13 team, and see the motorcycle that is making history. Enjoy pork bbq sliders from the kitchen of the zen of slow cooking and refreshments with fellow adventurers.
