Page 10, paragraph 15 especially caught my eye and made me laugh a little.. LOUD PIPES SAVE LIVES! :D

Very fascinating. I love stuff from WWI

If any of you are around the Kansas City, MO area be sure to check out the only federally recognized WWI museum at the Liberty Memorial. Its just south of the down town area. They have an old Harley on display there as well.

thanks for posting this, i have enjoyed the heck out of reading it....

i loved the part where "motorcycles are built for speed"
but the speed limits were 20mph with the side car and 25 without, unless an emergency were declared.
