The motorcycle was invented in 1885 when two visionary Germans decided to attach a small internal
combustion engine to a bicycle. From that humble origin begins a remarkable story of technological innovation, record-setting, and the formation of a whole new subculture of society. People began racing motorcycles not long after their introduction. In grueling endurance races, an American company named Harley-Davidson rode to the front of the pack with a thunderous roar. Meanwhile, motorcycling was also becoming popular because motorcycles were a convenient and economical form of transportation. As motorcycles became more commonplace, riding clubs formed, people began to customize their bikes, and a new subculture emerged-one that wholly embraced the free-wheeling spirit of the motorcycle lifestyle-bikers! Featuring a colorful reading from narrator Kerin McCue, From Boneshakers to Choppers gives listeners the scoop on the wild story of the motorcycle in all its many forms.
