Excellent! I'm looking forward to future installments of this. It's well written, has great illustrations, and covers some new (for me) material.

I particularly liked the Victorian version of Evil Kenevil!

Its.......A FACT!

I'm an avid reader about all things motorcycle, and this article was full of info I haven't read before. Good stuff, and more to follow!

If you guys like this kind of article, pass the link around to your friends and post it on your Facebook wall. Our bike reviews get the vast majority of our traffic, so feature-y stuff like this isn't regarded as equally valuable, relatively speaking. It's all about the numbers.

Personally, I love feature-type articles and believe they augment MO's worth. Bike reviews can be found everywhere. This article can't.

Cool!

BTW, "Einspur" means "ONE track", not "on track".

Sylvester Roper invented the motorcycle in 1869. He was an American.
He later died at 73 on his third model. His bikes were steam powered, they were not 3 or 4 wheelers, and they were not converted bicycles. His first patent application was in 1869, for a machine he had completed and ridden. He should be mentioned as the inventor. Google him up. He didn't market them, but he was the original inventor.
