Nothing beats the sound of a BMW though. Keep your crappy Harly i will drive around in my superior BMW :p. And no don't denny it, the german BMW's were better then the american harleys.

If only BMW kept building Custom motorbikes, i wouldn't buy a brand new Harley by the end of the month :p Indeed german BMW were better than Harleys cause they had better ground clearance and could easyer be used offroad...

SkipsterI'm just guessing, but I think it's because the Germans used their motorcycles with the armored cars for recon in combat (early on anyway), whereas the Allies used them for mainly message delivery and such. I could be wrong though...

The German army experimented with motorcycles as transportation for motorized infantry units early in the war, but they seem to have mostly given it up sometime after Barbarossa.

Hmm this dicusion of motorcycles reminded me of something I once saw in a book: An allied paradropable motor cycle (a triumph, I think). There also was a paradroppable jeep with an mg that needed 4 parachutes. How cool would it be to paradrop a jeep or motrocylce to some needy paratroops behind enemy lines? This would completly change the effectivity of paratroops, since they previoulsy would be limited to walking on foot or stealing enemy tanks/jeeps. They probably threw the motorcycle out of A C-47 or C-46 door. As for how they transported the jeep to the Drop Zone, I'm guesing that they used the cargo C-47 with oversized doors and then pushed the jeep out of it, since they didn't have the convenience of a aft cargo ramp.

I think there should be an Operation: Dumbo Drop kit on gazala

If you drop Dumbo on an enemy tank it doesnt explode but rather gets squished.
