The World of Motorcycling
Two wheels and an engine. The basic ingredients of the motorcycle are so simple; but its attraction, stronger than ever after 110 years of relentless development, is so hard to explain.
Part of the reason for this is that motorcyling means so many things to so many different people. More than merely a form of transport, it incorporates everything from an ancient Scott roadster to Aprilia's modern 250cc Grand Prix racer, from a booming Velocette single to Honda's futuristic EXP-2 desert racer.
This section takes a winding ride from the first ever motorcycle - Gottlieb Daimler's Einspur - to the fastest ever - Dave Campos's 322mph (518kph) Harley-Davidson - via Chelsea Bridge, Hollywood and the Nurburgring. But if it is the machines that form the outline of the motorcycling picture, then it's the people who design, build, modify, pose, commute or tour on, race, crash, repair, fight or save lives on them who add the colour.
The World of Motorcycling is their story: from Mick Doohan pulling a wheelie on his Honda NSR500 to Marion Brando leaning on his Triumph Thunderbird; from a medical worker delivering supplies in the African Bush to a Sunday-morning superbiker cranking a Ducati 916 through a turn.
Different people, on different motorcycles, and in very different situations, united by a shared appreciation of two wheels and an engine.
