Jan Wagemaker: Excellent, the fast and the furious! Robin Clark: Imagine trying to ride that monstrosity. Teppo Saarinen: While useful in some situations, I doubt a tiny detail like this could have made all the difference. However, British anti-invasion innovations never fail to interest and surprise. Misheck Njai: Maybe not ALL the difference, but the Germans would have been caught off guard for a few crucial moments. Rudy Hunter: It may have made a difference in terms of slowing the advance and enabling reinforcements to arrive. It may have been just enough. Marc Leloux: Once the ammo is out or he needs to move, he'll be picked off or would have to run and give the enemy a working motorcycle. I don’t think this is an amazing solution. Ray Stanley: These were desperate times and desperate measures were needed. Credit should be given for those who took up the challenge. Tony Davies: This would have been awesome support for my father, who guarded airfields with Ross rifles and only one clip.
