Wheels Through Time Photo of the Day- "Henderson Endurance Racer". In 1917, the Henderson Motorcycle Company hired Maldwin Jones to attempt a 24-hour endurance record attempt aboard this one-of-a-kind model.

Guess what else is going on in the world right now, Sturgis. LIKE pilgrims to some holy land, but tattooed and on two wheels, thousands of adventure motorcycling enthusiasts converge in Sturgis, South Dakota, USA every year to be part of one of the country’s largest and longest-running gatherings of bikers. Many of them ride for days, enduring miles of blistering sun, bouts of rain and the occasional mouthful of bugs before arriving in a cloud of dust at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
