Injun Pete Posted July 18, 2005 Share Posted July 18, 2005 I'm sure all you motorcycle Guru"s already know this but...... I didn't and wanted to share it with the others who didn't. I read the following artical in a schedule of events paper for the "Little Sturgis Rally". Because of their maneuverability both on and off the road, motorcycles were put to military use as early as 1915, says Ed Youngblood of Westerville, Ohio. Mr. Youngblood is as outside contractor who works as a curator for the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickeringtom, Ohio. In 1916, the U.S. Army used Harley-Davidsons with sidecar-mounted machine guns to chase Pancho Villa, he relates. Appropriately, Pancho Villa eluded them aboard an INDIAN motorcycle.
