Wow, Thye's trip from Lake Oswego to Chile in 1963 was quite an awesome experience. Although I'll probably never have the nerve to do a similar run, it wouldn't be the same as it was back then anyhow. Anyway, I feel like I've been there having read the book. They tell me Thye is a respected BMW dealer in Washington now. His experience with the machine certainly qualifies him as such. Thanks to the folks at SoundRider.com for tipping me off to this book.
