Those "Germans" are riding Indians or HDs (my American ID skills are limited, but the GMC M3 Scout cars in
the background are a certainty, and they are headed in the same direction). Such a weird photo - were they
training? Was it normal to "slide in?" They MUST have been leaking fuel... but what else could you do?
