Loved it. I would not have been able to go up and down the sandy hill at 4:37 mark. Just fly up the hill and let go.

Actually, the NORTONs were the cream of the Dispatch Rider bikes, the MATCHLESS bikes were very good as well. I owned a 1943 BSA M20, & was surprised how simple & forgiving it was. All those machines were purpose adapted versions of civilian production bikes, completely tested by the military before ordering them.
I enjoyed the video - big singles are music to my ears. BTW, the India made ROYAL ENFIELD "EFI" BULLETS, are extremely good versions of traditional Brit Singles - brought up to date.

I'm partial to the Harley WLC's in the video.
I've ridden mine in conditions similar to that.
It's a good thing the military ordered them with the skid plates.

Interesting video!
Noticed a few things: Smoking in class? Go back to there units as 'highly trained men', Son, any eight year old around here can ride a dirt bike like that! Loved the part where the dispatch rider comes up to the semi hidden officer and radio operators, stands at attention and salutes....in coming!!
