Motorcycles are vehicles with two wheels (or a pair of wheels), and an engine (also called a motor) like those in cars. They are often driven by one person, but can also have a passenger on the back of the bike.
The first internal combustion motorcycle was the Daimler Reitwagen, developed in 1885 by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach at Bad Cannstatt in Germany. This motorcycle was not a true prototype; rather, it was designed as an expedient test-bed for the new fuel-efficient petroleum-fueled engine being developed by Daimler and Maybach at that time.
Modern mass-produced motorcycles generally have a steel frame, telescopic forks holding the front wheel, and disc brakes. The rear wheel is typically a swingarm-mounted unit, usually of aluminum or steel. The wheel and tire are the most significant elements of a motorcycle’s construction, and they affect its performance, handling, and rider comfort.
Motorcycles are a popular way for people to get around, but they are not always safe. They are difficult to see for other drivers, and are especially dangerous when traveling on busy roads or in cities with heavy traffic. Therefore, it is important to follow the rules and regulations of your state or province when riding a motorcycle. It is also important to practice safety measures before every ride, such as adjusting your horn, making sure your lights work and checking the brakes while you are parked.
