Feeling the wind in your hair, the adrenaline pumping through your body, or simply being able to weave your way through busy streets effortlessly; owning a motorcycle does have its advantages.

From Britain you had companies like BSA Motorcycles and from from the United States of America you had companies like Harley-Davidson pumping out some of the best metal beasts. In addition to this, from the far east you had Japan sending out state-of-the-art motorcycles from companies like Yamaha and Honda.
