Peter Bergstein has made many trips to destinations across the United States, many of which he has undertaken on his motorcycle. He has joined his cycling club on rides through Redwood National Park in California and along Highway 1, which runs along the state’s coastline. He also rode through Canada during one of his trips. When he became a U.S. citizen, he drove his bike to Manhattan to visit the Statue of Liberty. A collector of rare Harley-Davidson motorcycles, he displays his acquisitions in his office.
