1904 Hercules courtesy Glenn H. Curtiss MuseumHammondsport, NY — If you have never heard of Glenn Curtiss, don’t feel bad. Most people haven’t. If you have, you probably know him as an aviation pioneer. If you’re a motorcycle enthusiast, however, you might know him for his place in the annals of motorcycle manufacturing (tucked between Indian and Harley Davidson), and maybe even for that legendary ride on a beach in Florida in 1907 earning him the title “Fastest Man on Earth.” This August is a special time at the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum thanks to a new world-class exhibit called “Dawn of a Legacy” commemorating the 120th anniversary of Glenn Curtiss establishing his motorcycle and engine manufacturing business.
