Have you ever wanted to know why Harley-Davidsons are referred to as "hogs"? Have you ever seen a 77-year-old man race at over 100 miles per hour? Or have you simply wondered what in the world a Flying Merkel could be? Modern Marvels: Motorcycles will set you straight.
This History Channel series takes viewers on a thrilling, fact-filled ride, exploring the history and popularity of that two-wheeled wonder known as the motorcycle. The 50-minute program showcases more than 100 years of motorcycle technology and the machine's effect on society. Through interviews with manufacturers and enthusiasts (such as The Tonight Show's Jay Leno), viewers learn about the rise, fall, and resurrection of the motorcycle industry and why the machines are just as popular as ever.
From earlier models that could literally set riders aflame to the most up-to-date versions of classic Indians and Harleys, Modern Marvels provides a fascinating and complete vision of the fright and fun provided by one of modern history's most prevalent forms of transportation. --Zachary Lively
