  History Of Motorbikes
BSA Gold Star

Birmingham Small Arms was England's largest and for a time, the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer. The company began in 1854 as a joint venture of a number of small Birmingham, England area gunsmiths to supply armaments to the British forces during the Crimean War. The progression to build bicycles came in the 1880's as a result of a decreased demand for firearms........

  Quad Bikes
Quad bikes are the sit-astride four wheel bikes with handlebars. The farming community tends to call them ATVs, while the forestry calls them ATCs (All Terrain Cycles). Leisure users tend to use the term Quad Bike. We use the term interchangeably!
  Bike Security

In the past five years some 115,000 motorcycles worth about 70 million have been stolen and not recovered. Yet of the 900,000 motorcycles in the UK, less than half are fitted with security devices.
