This is a first for Chapter I! This is a report on the Membership that comes to me from our National Office
in Phoenix. I will be reporting not only at our monthly gatherings but in the Newsletter each month. I will
be giving a report of the New Members and the Members whose Membership is on the Expiring list. The
only names that will be announced are the New Members so as not to embarrass anyone.
New Members for May were . . . Barron Sproles from Bixby and Floyd & June Boggs from Sapulpa.
New Members for June were . . . Sparky & Denise Mullins from Wagoner.
From the Expiring list we had six in May. All six renewed their Membership. From the June list, we had
twelve Members on the Renewal list with all twelve Renewing. Now keep in mind that we may never see
all of these Members. Some merely are Members of GWRRA and do not want to be affiliated with a
Chapter. Some just want to be Members of the association
for the benefits that it offers, and really don't like riding
with groups and that is their choice. As much as I would
like to see every Member on the ARL list that is assigned
to Chapter I participate, that is simply not going to
So, if and when you guys run into a Goldwing rider or any
motorcycle rider for that matter, ask them if they are
Members of GWRRA. Then invite them to come have
Fun with us! It's really that easy. If the Membership
Enhancement is a position that you think you might be
interested in, come talk to me.
Until next month, keep having Fun and be safe!

A Brief History of the Motorcycle                                                  By Dave Tharp
“Who invented the first motorcycle?” It seems like a simple question, but the answer is a bit complicated.
Motorcycles are descended from the “safety” bicycle, bicycles with front and rear wheels of the same size,
with a pedal crank mechanism to drive the rear wheel. Those bicycles, in turn were descended from high-
wheel bicycles. The high-wheelers were descended from an early type of push-bike, without pedals,
propelled by the rider’s feet pushing against the ground. These appeared around 1800, used iron-banded
wagon wheels, and were called “bone-crushers”, both for their jarring ride and their tendency to toss their
Gottlieb Daimler (who later teamed up with Karl Benz to for the Daimler-Benz Corporation) is credited
with building the first motorcycle in 1885, one wheel in front and
one in the back, although it had a smaller spring-loaded outrigger
wheel on each side. It was constructed motley of wood, with the
wheels being of the iron-banded wooden spoked wagon type,
definitely a bone-crusher chassis.
It was indeed powered by a single-cylinder Otto-cycle engine,
and may have had a spray type carburetor. (Daimlers assistant,
Wilhelm Maybach was working on the invention of the spray
carburetor at the time).
If one counts two wheels with steam propulsion as being a
motorcycle then the first one may have been American. Once
                                                                      Daimlers wooden Framed “Bone Crusher”
                                          such machine was
                                          demonstrated at fairs and circuses in the eastern US in 1867, built
                                          by one Sylvester Howard Roper of Roxbury, Massachusetts.
                                          There is an existing example of a roper machine, dated 1869. It’s
                                          powered by a charcoal-fired two-cylinder engine, whose
                                          connecting rods directly drive a crank on the rear wheel. This
                                          machine predated the invention of the safety bike by many years,
                                          so its chassis is also based on the bone-crusher bike.
                                             Most of the development during the earliest of eras concentrated
                                             on three and four-wheel designs, since it was complex enough to

                                             running without
having to worry about them falling over. The next really notable
two-wheeler was the Millet of 1892. It used a 5-cylinder engine
built as the hub of its rear wheel. The cylinders rotated with the
wheel, and its crankshaft constituted the rear axle.
The first really successful production two-wheeler though , was
the Hildebrand & Wolfmueller, patented in Munich in 1894. It
had a step through frame, with its fuel tank mounted on the down
tube. The engine was a parallel-twin, mounted low on the frame,
with its cylinders going fore-and-aft. The connecting rods                     1892 5-Cylinder Millet
connected directly to a crank on the rear axle, and instead of
using heavy flywheels for energy storage between cylinder firing, it used a pair if stout elastic bands, one on
each side outboard of the cylinder, to help out on the compression stokes. It was water-cooled and had a

water tank/radiator built into the top of the rear fender.
In 1895, the French firm of DeDion-Buton built an engine that was to make the mass production and
common use of motorcycles possible. It was a small, light, high revving four stroke single, and used
battery-and-coil ignition, doing away with the troublesome hot-tube. Bore and stroke figures of 50mm by
70mm gave a displacement of 138cc. A total loss lubrication system was employed to drip oil into the
crankcase through a metering valve, which then sloshed around to lubricate and cool components before
dumping it on the ground via a breather. DeDion-Buton used this
1/2 horsepower power plant in road going trikes, but the engine
was copied and used by everybody, including Indian and Harley-
Davidson in the US.
Although a gentleman named Pennington built some machines
around 1895 (its uncertain whether uncertain whether any of
them actually ran)., the first US production motorcycle was the
Orient-Aster, built by the Metz Company in Waltham,
Massachusetts in 1898 It used an Aster engine that was a
French –built copy of the DeDion-Buton, and predated Indian
(1902) by three years, and Harley Davidson (1902) by four.                   1895 Orient Aster
