What are the twelve most significant motorcycles throughout history? A friend and I are working on a project that will highlight 12 significant/iconic motorcycles. I could easily just choose 12 bikes at random, or flip thru my copy of the Guggenheims Art of the Motorcycle, but that would likely anger a lot of folks and overlook any number of bikes. We have an intended audience for our project and want to have a relatively broad appeal. So, I figured that if we want to appeal to as many motorcyclists as possible, I should appeal to as many motorcyclists as possible. This site spans the world and has more opinions than New York City has rats. Significant means what you want it to. Please reply with a make, model and year. Just stating, Triumph Bonneville is pretty vague since Bonnies have been made off and on since 1959. And if theres a particular bike, like Rollie Frees record-breaking Vincent, please state that. We want as specific a bike as possible for each of the 12. There is currently no deadline. In fact, the more suggestions, the better. If 12 of you respond with 12 different bikes, then thatll be our selection pool. But, if 1200 of you respond with 120 different bikes, well, then, thatll be a lot more fun. And if you feel there is a particular reason you chose such-and-such bike, let me know. But, please keep it civil. I dont want to get punted to the basement on post #4 just cuz yall cant act like adults. Thanks, and happy riding!
