My name is Paul-Emile BESSADE, I’m a 59 Frenchmen, but living in Uruguay (South America) were I own a Farm growing cows for meat purpose only. We live there with my wife and my youngest son since 2004. Uruguay it’s a very small but nice country where life is quiet and sweet.
In 2016 I will try to do my third Cannonball, I was there in 2012, and 2014 with a 1929 4 Cylinders Henderson, achieving with all the miles only in 2014, in 2012 we broke all the valves on by one until it’s runs clear. This time I decided to buy a Harley Davidson 1915 3 speeds just for the purpose of the rally. A very nice man L. I. found the bike in Seattle and I just bought it trusting my friend in his choice. But this time the challenge will be far more much difficult, and for me the goal is: just do it, do as much as you can, try to arrive as far as you can, and ENJOY EVERY SECOND YOU DRIVE, there will be perhaps no second opportunity to do this in your life. I’m very excited by this event and just want to add that I came very late to the motorcycles beginning in 2004 with a 1961 BMW R 69 S, and then falling in love with pre 1945 bikes.
