 Re: 1899 First Packard
This is really scary stuff. I ride a 1907 Triumph 500cc motorbike and in those years it had no traffic, clutch, gearbox and negligible brakes. That driver is controlling a very, very basic machine, he has no escape plan and will readily admit that it is a very interesting experience. I had a fall from my 1907 bike in August 2007 as someone stepped out in front of it and I have no clutch or brakes. I crashed heavily and took a few months to heal. I admire anyone who can and will drive or ride these true veterans of our hobby. Best Regards. Peter Packard
