Motorbike Tours
 

"Perhaps more than any other single object of industrial design, the motorcycle can be considered a metaphor for the 20th century. It was the first form of personal mechanized transport to emerge from the beginning of the industrial age; its subsequent evolution follows the main currents of modernity.The motorcycle is an immortal cultural icon that changes with the times. More than speed, it embodies the abstract themes of rebellion, progress, freedom, sex, and danger."
Text from "the art of the motorcycle" exhibition,
SOLOMON R. GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM
JUNE 26-SEPTEMBER 20, 1998"
