North Country Man Enters Motorcycle Cannonball Run
If you’re old enough to remember the Burt Reynolds film “Cannonball Run” back in 1981 you’re probably going to appreciate what a North Country man, Erik Dunk of Adams Center, is going to do beginning tomorrow. YNN reports that Dunk has entered the 16 day, 3,800 mile Pre-1930 Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run race from New York to San Francisco for vintage motorcycles. Did I say vintage? Erik will be riding a 1929 Harley Davidson JD. What could possibly be his motivation?
“I’m going because I’m crazy and I like to have fun,” Dunk said. “I love motorcycles and Harley Davidson.”
The race gets underway downstate in Newburgh tomorrow and finishes up in SanFrancisco in about 16 or 17 days. Good luck Erik and as the song “Born To Be Wild” goes,
Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way
