MOTORCYCLE ADVENTURER – CARL STEARNS CLANCY FIRST MOTORCYCLIST TO RIDE AROUND THE WORLD 1912-1913
WRITTEN BY DR. GREGORY W. FRAZIER

This travelogue originally authored by Clancy is for the avid motorcycle adventurist, the travel dreamer thirsting for motorcycle touring. Clancy circled the globe during 1912-1913 on a 1912 motorcycle. There were no GPSs, ATMs, Internet, and often no gas, roads or motorcycle repair shops. It describes the first motorcycle global adventure ride by the man who survived a dream quest with his gun, determination, grit, and guts.
