By 81 years of age, most men have settled down to puttering around in the garden and sitting on the porch. Not Bill Krieder. He drove his restored '42 Harley-Davidson WLA most of the trip, trailering it only for short stretches when mechanical problems occurred. The bike is painted like the one he used as an MP at the end of World War II, and during the occupation of Germany after VE-Day. Krieder's post-Army career was as a motor cop, so he was also very useful for traffic control.
