Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone enlighten me as to which unit used the red HD motorbikes? regards Liam
     
  2. You got a thing about red bikes?

    This is the third thread youve started on the subject.
     
  3. Yep, it was the 14th/67th Red Harley Hussars (Davidson's Own).
     
  4. Biscuits I have read a few of your replies to threads over the years and was not 100% certain until today! ;-)~
    Lord flashheart .....it would appear so otherwise i would not pose the question!
     
  5. Do they still exist?
    I have heard the expression "tail gunner on a Harley Davidson" a few times before. I had thought it was in reference to bizarre sexual preferences involving leather chaps and lots of leather tassles.
    I gather these tail gunners hang around in groups and are very "friendly"
     
  6. Three times on three seperate threads??

    The clue may be that no-one has replied with a sensible answer so possibly nobody knows or cares.

    Why do you need to know?
     
  7. who knows and I certainly dont care!

    Nope I've never seen red HD's in the Postie units I was in bearing in mind the role role the bikes are used for I don't think they really wish to advertise themselves as a BFO target
     

  12. Mmm. Same reason we 'civilianised' 110 Land rovers when going adventure training. Hand painted them red or blue. They really blended in. :roll:
