The Provocation....

A skittish motorcycle with a touch of blood in it is better than all the riding animals on earth, because of its logical extension of our faculties, and the hint, the provocation, to excess conferred by its honeyed, untiring smoothness.

T. E. Lawrence The Road

This is from a man who, in 1935, rode his SS100 Brough Superior into a tree at over 100 MPH.

The SS100 is a fascinating bike and was scary fast for it's time.
