Training Army Dispatch Riders

When motorcycles were still a novelty, back in the 1930s and 1940s, many young men got their first taste of biking in the Army, as a military dispatch rider. This short clip from Harley-Davidson shows riders on WLAs learning to cope with rough terrain – and not always staying on. A great piece of history to end the week!
