The apocalyptic look was often worn in anticipation of brake failure

Coathanger Engineering 101
Harley with coathangers
If it could be done with coat hangers Mike would do it with coat hangers.
Most of his theoretical Physics Studies at Oxford were centered around coat hangers.
While other physicists worked on string theory Miked worked on wire theory.
He proved that although coat hangers are not the basic building blocks
of the universe they are what held the basic blocks of the universe together.

Mike at Grand Canyon
After 40 years we finally got there
In 1966 Mike tried to get to the Grand Canyon but fell asleep on his motorbike and broke his collarbone.
In 1968 Charlie tried and ran his motorbike into a cow.
In 2004 we rented the biggest SUV we could find and finally made it.
