The first land-speed record for a motorcycle was unofficially set in the early 1900s by Glenn Curtiss in Yonkers, New York. Curtiss continued to push the limits of speed at the time, and by 1907 he had more than doubled his own record, setting a new mark of 136.27 mph. It was not until 1930, in Arpajon, France, that Curtiss's record was officially eclipsed when Joseph S. From the 1930s through the mid-1950s a number of motorcycle riders pushed their motorcycles to set new land-speed records at different locations (mostly in Europe).
