Brough Superior Motorcycles

As a teenager I read Seven Pillars of Wisdom without much comprehension, but I re-read it in my late twenties and began to understand that it was more than a great "boy's own" yarn. When I discovered that Lawrence was also a motorcyclist I began researching his history in ernest. 

This page was started in 1997. At that time there was only one other site about Lawrence and that one was mostly about his guns. That page has gone (I have a partial archive of it) but there are now many others proclaiming the machine as the rightful owner of the phrase, "The Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles", and which hail Lawrence as its most aclaimed rider. 

If there were a top ten of motorcyclists, where would he reside, I wonder.

Thank you, Peter, for the inspiration.
