Just after midnight on May 14, 1914, a ferryboat from Weehawken, New Jersey chugged along in the darkness across the Hudson River to Manhattan. On board with a tired-looking motorcycle was Erwin G. Baker, who was about to complete the fastest transcontinental trip in American history.
Baker’s journey of 3,497 miles had taken him 11 ½ days. And, oh, what an incredible 11 ½ days it was! After leaving San Diego on May 3rd he rode by himself to New York, averaging four hours sleep each night.
