At the same time that Karl Benz was inventing the first automobile, Gottlieb Daimler was inventing the first motorcycle. Together, the automobile and motorcycle have grown up and changed over the years, but in this exhibit, the motorcycle will be getting all the glory it deserves.
Powerful, fast, dynamic, stylish, and with only two wheels. Motorcycles are admired and used from many different walks of life, and from Harley-Davidson to Ducati to Honda, there is a motorcycle for everyone to love.
In California, motorcycles were particularly popular and with their own special sub-culture within the state. From good weather to electric vehicles, from Hells Angels to Hollywood, from the deserts to the coasts, motorcycles will always have a special place in California’s vehicular history.
