A few months after the Armistice of 1918 was once signed, while the debate of
everyone involved was once both once they will be demobilized
or what they might do after they have been demobilized, young
men have been changing perspectives in this comparable topic within the heavy atmosphere
of a really traditional lodge someplace in London.

One was once thinking about how close to, or how a long way, have been the times while he may see
the outdated home-folks once more "way again in Dixieland."

The different used to be thinking about what type of dissipation will be most sensible suited
to eliminate that haunting feeling of unrest, which because of three
or 4 years of energetic carrier used to be so universal among the early life of
England at that time.

"How approximately getting married?" recommended the one.

Then an extended pause, in which the opposite was once obviously considering
the professionals and cons of one of these specific proposition.

"Nothing doing," he answered eventually--"not interesting adequate, old
man." one other pause--"And while I come to imagine, i do not comprehend of any
girl who'd are looking to marry me whether i needed to marry her." And as
if to provide a last determination to any idea of _that_ nature, he
added--"Besides, i could not come up with the money for it!"

"But I inform you what i'm going to do, Steve," stated he, "I'll return with you
across yon herring-pond and feature a trot around America."

So that was once the way it happened.

Two or 3 months later, while I arrived at long island from Canada,
I bought a motor-cycle and got down to go the continent to the
Pacific, and i've it at the most sensible authority that this was once the first
time an Englishman had ever comprehensive the journey on a motor-cycle. If
it is so, i do not ask yourself at it!

The entire journey, which lined simply fifty miles in need of 5,000, was
undertaken relatively by myself, and even though unfold over approximately 3 months,
constituted an afternoon or in need of a month's real using. For the
benefit of brother motor-cyclists who can be drawn to such
details i could upload that I allotted totally with using goggles
from commencing to finish, and other than at stops in huge cities at the way
I wore no hat. i believe that once the motor-cyclist will get accustomed to
doing with no those encumbrances he'll locate the thrill of motor-cycling
considerably enhanced.

The overall variety of replacements to the engine by myself comprised the
following: 5 new cylinders; 3 pistons; 5 gudgeon pins; three
complete units of bearings; connecting rods, and 11 sparking

The computing device used to be completely overhauled on 4 events among the
Atlantic and the Pacific, and on 3 of those by means of the recognized
agents of the brands. The engine cut-out swap was once the only
part of the computer that didn't holiday, come unfastened, or move wrong
sooner or later. i used to be thrown off 142 instances, and after that I stopped
counting! except that I had no trouble.

Contrary to what the reader might imagine, I paid significant care to
the computer, quite within the early phases. For the 1st three
hundred miles I slightly handed twenty to 25 miles in step with hour
in order to offer the computer a very good "running-in" sooner than filing it
to tougher paintings. on the finish of the journey I had spent extra in maintenance and
replacements than the unique fee of the laptop, and that i offered it at
San Francisco for simply over 1 / 4 of the quantity I paid for it three
months before.

And i'm nonetheless as willing a motor-cyclist as ever!
