Motorcycle Transportation

Motorcycle Transportation, originally uploaded by CJGilleland.

According to the poster of this picture, this is an 1885 German inventor’s idea of a motorcycle. He states the inventor attached a four stroke engine to a wooden bicycle frame and added two side wheels for stability. He states the motor had a belt of sorts which would turn the rear wheel.

Don't you think history is fickle? All the ideas that came before the so called "first" motorcycle...and we hardly ever see or hear of these pre-cursers....
