On August 29 in 1885, a motorised petroleum powered bicycle was patented. It was designed and built by the German inventors Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, who called their invention a riding car. However, many call the motorised two-wheeler the world's first motorcycle. For today, the band I chose is among the most obvious, when thinking about motorcycles. England's New Wave Of British Heavy Metal band Saxon have created a few outstanding songs about motorbikes. This time 'round, we're going with the most obvious title wise for the historical link. It's "Motorcycle Man"!
