Circa 1929, Wall of Death, Revere Beach, MA Yes, that's a real lion. * With the quickly improving build quality, speed, and more oil-tight engines, motorcycle racing was able to move from dirt tracks onto the motordromes of the 1910s– large wooden board tracks used for streamlined competition with banked turns of 70-80 degrees. Riders soon learned a neat trick– that with a little speed, centripetal force made it possible for them to stick their bike sideways in turns on a completely vertical wall.

ROYSTON VASEY MEMORIES Miss Timkins, secretary of The Royston Vasey Wine Circle, was a bit of a goer in her younger days. She was the first woman in West Yorkshire to own a motor cycle and did not confine herself to sitting primly in the saddle but was prone to startle other road users by standing on the saddle and steering by swaying to one side or the the other.
