Nice!
I have heard tails that he and his bike sailed into Humboldt Bay (not sure which trip )on his way to the salt flats.
The word is he spent some time here getting his bike ready with the help of some locals.
Pretty cool guy.

nice find. I agree, seems like quite a character and so different from his theatrical depiction
