Merkel was no ordinary turtle


Merkel was no turtle

With her bright orange paint

All she had was an engine

And a loop for a frame

No brakes to stop her

Has she flew down the track

At 74 miles per hour

Wow that was fast

Sadly in 1915 the Merkel flew no more

Because production came to an end

It was then the motorcycle enthusiast

Lost a very good friend

By Thomas Sims

A tribute to Joe Merkel

motorcycle pioneer
