1885 Daimler Reitwagen (Germany)

In the 1880′s, most motorcycle innovation was done in Europe. The designs were pretty crazy by today’s standards. This wooden motorcycle with training wheels the 1885 Daimler Reitwagen (Germany) is an example.

This is a short bio on me and my history with motorcycles. Hope it doesn't bore you guys. I just thought I'd get it out of the way. I served in the US Navy's submarine program (SSBN 626 - Daniel Webster) from 1965 to 1971. Me In San Juan PR after retrofit USS Daniel Webster when she had bow planes. My 1968 Yamaha 250 cc 2 stroke Street Scrambler While I was in the yards in Newport News , VA I bought a new  250cc 2 stroke Yamaha Street Scrambler. Paid around $500 for it and had it shipped to Oahu, HI when I got transferred there. Used it there until 1971 when I was discharged.Fast forward to 1973. Married, no kids. Went to a picnic @ my wife's cousin's camp and dumped a 650 Norton in a ditch on a backroad, flipped over the handlebars but was wearing a helmet. Decided to stay away from motorcycles for a while. Again, fast forward to 2008 when I decided to get my M/C license in CT. I was building trophies for my buddy Dick Lupkas who was running a motorcycle show every other week behind the Valley Diner in Derby, CT. He  had a 1991 883 Harley Sportster he bought for his wife. I believe she injured her ankle while attending the M/C course and changed her mind. The bike became available, so I bought it. Never took a picture of it though. My 2006 Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportster The 883 was fun, but it was a "leaker" and didn't have enough power. It sounded like a beast though. So I went to Yankee Harley in Bristol, CT and traded it in for a 2006 1200 Sportster. In 2010, I decided I wanted to have a (as my buddy Dick Lupkas indicated) "real" bike, so I bought a 2012 Softail. I'm partial to Harley-Davidson. My 2012 Softail with my grandchildren Nathan and Maddy. I had plans to travel and wanted the amenities of a Touring bike, cruise control, storage, ABS and an infotainment system, so I bought my 2014 Ultra Glide Ultra Classic in 2014, and that is the one I currently own. My 2014 Ultra Glide on a trip to Mohegan Sun for a Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction.
