A motorcycle is a two-wheeled motor vehicle, the derelict remains of which litter the wastelands.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

An open-seated, two-wheeled vehicle propelled by an engine, resembling but heavier and larger than a bicycle, often having two saddles. Used to convey people from place to place, these vehicles are often called a motorbike, bike, or cycle. Before the Great War, motorcycles had varied designs to suit a wide range of different purposes, from long-distance travel, commuting, cruising, sporting, racing, and off-road riding.
