This is one of the cooler publications of The Quartermaster Corps in WWII. Dated September 25, 1942, this was the manual given to motorcyclist trainees as they learned to operate their Harley WLA's or Indian 741's for wartime service. This is an authentic and true to original reproduction with great pictures and illustrations. We've seen better pictures in other manuals, but the content makes up for the less than perfect original production.

Under Qualifications for a Motorcyclist: "To become an efficient motorcyclist, a man must first be an excellent soldier. He must be interested in his vehicle; be a quick, logical thinker; have initiative and mechanical ability; be strong, and have an excellent sense of balance. He must know the rules of the road, the principles of safety, and how to control the vehicle under all conditions."
