The first mass-produced American motorcycle, he Indian, ppeared in 1901; it was followed in 1903 by the Harley-Davidson.

Between 1910 and 1920, eams of riders competed against each other in large tracks built especially for motorcycle racing. The tracks, alled motordromes, ere made of rough-cut lumber and banked steeply--sometimes more than 60 degrees.

The early racing motorcycles were essentially bicycles with powerful engines but no brakes. They had to be towed by other motorcycles to start them.

Speeds of 100+ miles an hour were common and collisions and crashes occurred regularly; often, iders would be upended when their bikes hit 2x4s that had become worn or warped.

By the early 1920s, ocal governments began to crack down, losing tracks, nd the motorcycle companies that sponsored teams began instituting rules to limit speeds.
