Thanks

Sara,
I think everyone here at Motorcycle.com owes you a debt of gratitude for the time and sacrafice that you have invested in this brilliant analysis of the early days of motorcycle manufacturing. Personally, I've never seen such a concise grasp of the topic, the clarity and insight your post is only overshadowed by the depth of your insights into the topic.

I'm certain I speak for all of the Motorcycle.com readers, members, writers, editors, and management, when I express my abiding hope that you will continue to bless us with your encyclopediac knowledge of the history of motorcycles.

Bravo, Sara. Bravo.

Its.......A FACT!

Never heard of DWK Motorcycles, but I am no scholar on the history of motorcycles, or anything else for that matter.
And well written Ken.

It galls me to death that these retards think they're fooling anyone with their stupid posts that are just an excuse to post their link to sell crap. I wish they'd realize that insulting my intelligence in that manner is the BEST POSSIBLE WAY to insure I will NEVER purchase ANYTHING from them.

Hey Sara, just post your damn link in the Vendors forum where it belongs.
