More stories and pics from 1915

1915…motor cyclists were clamouring to ride bikes on the western front, as despatch riders or with the new Motor Cycle Machine Gun Batallions. But new models were still appearing and enthusiasts were doing their thing in reliabilty trials; in countries not involved in the carnage records were being broken.
PS There’s a great deal of material already posted for the 1920s and ’30s (with more pics to be added as time allows) and for some light relief the poetry section offers its own insight into our lyrical forebears. And you really ought to check out Ixion’s summary of motor cycling history; it’s a treat.
