    What...you old guys missed this anniversary??

    "On August 29th, 1885, Gottlieb Daimler patented the first ever motorcycle. The invention came about because Daimler was tinkering with different ways that he might package the recently invented four-stroke engine developed by Nicolaus Otto."

    Okay - fess up - which one of you guys was the test rider for this thing?!

            It is uncertain weather Harley or Davidson performed the test however the decision was made to scrap the training wheels and then market it.
