Changing Attitudes Towards Motorcyclists

A client who was injured in a motorcycle accident said that attitudes towards motorcyclists have been changing recently to become more positive. I pointed out that this is been going on for a long time and that Malcolm Forbes is the person who can probably be most credited for starting it.

I remember seeing Malcolm Forbes drive down Fifth Avenue in New York City in a suit on his motorcycle with other executives following along. I tried to find a photograph without success. However, I did find this photograph of Malcolm Forbes sitting on his motorcycle in his Fifth Avenue office in 1976.

But my father started first!  This is my father in a suit on his motorcycle in 1946
