The History of Motorcycling

Motorcycles have come a long way since the late 1880s when the first motorcycle was developed. But it's not just the technology that has changed, the culture of biking has seen a significant shift too. It seems vital to document those key dates, iconic images and inspiring videos which have helped to shape our passion for two wheels.

The History of Motorcycling will take you on a journey through time to celebrate and recognise the key influencers which have helped to make motorcycling what it is today. Showcasing the generations that fell in love with the biking ethos, the macho-rebel films of the day, those memorable stunts, the 60s subcultures and the masters of motorcycling (both past and present). We also remember those world records, the famed race tracks and we have even attempted to record that unwritten code that us bikers adhere to, whether we realise it or not.

Quite simply, it's a snapshot through time, and as always, we'd love to hear your thoughts and comments - especially if you think anything should be added.

So sit back, relax, and let yourself indulge in nostalgia for the next ten minutes or so
