Why don't motorcycles have straight steering stems?

I heard they started putting a rake on a bike just after they determined the wheel should be round. Along about the same time they decided brakes were better than just crashing when you wanted to stop.;)
Was this before or after they also decided the cart should be in front of the horse to shield the horse?
