:2 Associated Press Photo from San Francisco Bureau - Please credit Associated Press. Seeing new thrills, Charles A.Lindbergh is experimenting at Del Monte, Calif., with rides in gliders, on polo ponies, and more lately with a motorcycle borrowed for the purpose from State Traffic Patrolman Leo Ramsey. The famous aviatior seemed to enjoy his experiment with the two-wheeled machine better than that with the four-footed animal, which last week threw him after a short gallop.


:3 Associated Press Photo from San Francisco Bureau - Please credit Associated Press. Charles A. Lindbergh, who deserted his gliding experiments at Del Monte, California, last week for a short but active ride on a polo pony, tried a motorcycle this week, and found it somewhat easier to control than the pony. He borrowed State Traffic Officer Leo Ramsey's motorcycle for his trail ride.
