IF YOU FEEL LIKE COMMENTING on the timeline feel free to get in touch. The sheer scale of this project ensures a multitude of typos, omissions and mistakes. If you spot any please do let me know. Most of all, if you would like to add to the timeline…yes please! At the time of writing (February 2021) the timeline is reasonably complete up to 1924 but any facts, yarns, gossip and/or images from those years will be gratefully received. There is some text for later years but I’ve barely scratched the surface and it’s woefully incomplete. I’m adding to the timeline as fast as I can but it will be a lifetime’s work. So if you have access to contemporary sources for any year up to and including 2021 I’d like to hear from you. Naturally all contributions will be acknowledged.
As you’ll have seen this timeline includes a good number of features including touring yarns and the like. If any veteran riders out there would like to send in reminiscences, particularly if you have pictures, there’s a home for them in the timeline.
The gallimaufry (isn’t that a wonderful word?) is the place for potted histories, biographies of your favourite motor cycling hero, technical definitions, definitions of obscure motor cycing slang…you get the picture.
If lockdown is boring you, kill some time by contributing to the timeline. I’m setting up a picture gallery so your eyecatching snaps are welcome too.
The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you.
Be well, and, of course, ride safe.
