Lawrence of Arabia's Brough Superior SS100

Lawrence of Arabia's Brough Superior SS100

Built in 1932, the ‘Rolls Royce of motorbikes’. Art Deco genius.

This was the one the killed T.E. Lawrence, but on a plus side (other than being largerly undamaged), one of the doctors attending him was the neurosurgeon Hugh Cairns. He was profoundly affected by the incident and consequently began a long study of what he saw as the unnecessary loss of life by motorcycle dispatch riders through head injuries and his research led to the use of crash helmets by both military and civilian motorcyclists. As a consequence of treating Lawrence, Sir Hugh Cairns would ultimately save the lives of many motorcyclists. Good lad.
