Harley-Davidson made a lot of motorcycles for the American military during WW II; we all know this. What about training troops to use the famous WLA motorcycles, though? It’s not like the United States Army commandeered a bunch of college parking lots, set up some cones, and spent the weekend on it. If they had, those soldiers would’ve gotten a very bad surprise when they got to the front line. This old gem of a documentary follows some of those very troops as they learn to ride Harley-Davidson bikes.
Even though these guys were learning about offroading and bushwacking, a lot of what the narrator talks about is useful in civilian riding, of course. It’s unlikely you’ll have to worry about German artillery shelling the road (although a lot of roads pack potholes the size of artillery craters), however.
