Since the advent of the first motorized two-wheelers, the motorcycle has exerted a powerful attraction for those of us with fifty-weight motor oil coursing through our veins. We might own one or two motorcycles (or maybe four or five), but we're constantly casting longing glances at a whole lot of bikes not in our garages. Whether big or small, young or old, male or female, polka-dotted or striped, we all have one thing in common--we love motorcycles. You might even say we lust after them. "365 Motorcycles You Must Ride" might not take the place of a ride on your favorite bike, but it will satiate your moto-lust when you can't get out for a ride. On these pages you'll find a celebration of the motorcycle in all its two-wheeled glory, from Gottlieb Daimler's original wooden bone-shaker to the latest and greatest technological marvel from the Land of the Rising Sun and the best, worst, and most unusual bikes in between.
