That head cloth is really a small wash cloth to catch persperation. It covered a little more than a head band and kept a lot of sweat from rolling down and blowing into the eyes at the speeds we were going.

I had no problem ever and signed a lot of autographs on the circuit.Politics never seemed to be adverse, and people would like to talk about governments and directions, but never directed any unfriendly comments.

If anything I was very welcome and folks enjoyed seeing an American racing, as we were more noted for cars than bikes and wanted to know how we survived among all the traffic. A lot of folks didn't think anyone even rode a bike in the U.S. anymore! Ted Ernst Palos Verdes Estates, CA

That's a great photo. Ted, is your head bandaged, or are you simply wearing something to catch perspiration?

I hope this isn't an insensitive question, but may I ask about the reaction to your stars and stripes jersey in Germany at that time?
