I saw this on Shorpy today.

Motorcycle racing 103 years ago at the old Benning horse track in Washington.

May 30, 1912. "National Capital Motorcycle Club -- Decoration Day motor races at Benning track."

Kick azz.
Now them Boys were tuff. Considering the roads back then and believe only rigid frames existed. Even if you were only a road rider you had to be pretty hardcore.

Face Guys. We have gone soft.

The first motorcycle race was probably the first day the second one was built. Them old guys were tuff. Think about the WWII soldiers that rode 45" HDs. Great picture. :thumbsup :)
