Sure, he was talking about tractors, he would have said "Masey Ferguson" I guess.

Sgt-D is right, they where talking about Masey Fergussons. Or whatever it's spelled! You see thats why they accidently put down Harley Davidson.

Spencer the Great;4760781 The needs of the Third Reich would have been better met with a Honda.:D In all seriousness, a BMW sidecar, R-71 I think they are called, would be a great addition. We could have Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade-esque motorcycle chases.

Most movies use lots of crappy postwar bikes.. The R71 copies today are pretty far off.BMW only made like 3,000 R71s..The biggest thing I noticed is on the postwar bikes are the gearbox and shifter being different.There are plenty nore things but thats sticks out the most.The bike in Secret Weapons is the BMW R75 or a Zundapp KS 750 but pretty sure it is the R75.I would need a screen shot to confirm. The only movies that I can say I have seen a real WW2 bike in it is Crosses of Iron and Valkyrie(plenty) BTW Invictus/Fuchs that is a BMW R12 rig like mine in your signature.

I know =p It's a beauty. And the burning building is also quite impressing, although that was too large to fit in the sig. And another reason why I wanted it in is because the white emblem on the front looks a bit like the Lehr logo.

I really like the idea of a Metroclyce (or how you write it now?)

As I wrote in an another post, those bikes would be a real addition for the FH-Crafts. In my eyes even more then the Kettenkrad *takes cover*

The Motorcycles were frequently used in Russia/Ostfront too... if thats a theatre of war the FH-Dev team is thinking aboutt to work on after Normandy (hope so ^^)

Bringt them ingame Puh-Leaze and give 'em a authentic Horn. I love every vehicle on FH1+2 that got a horn sound. From K├╝belwagen up to Opel Blitz.

Meep meep.

On other hand, motorcycles were used for recon and linking duties, sorta tasks not really portrayed ingame.
