Letters to the Servicemen of WWII from the Motorcyclist Community
This article was a compilation of open letters sent to the troops who were defending America and our allies across the globe during WWII. It starts off with "Memories of Yesterday" by Francis Richardson, was a wonderful tale of a pre-war trip he had taken in New England. Richardson tells the tail of his journey from Waterbury, CT to Mt. Mansfield, VT. Along the way, he and his crew encountered a fairly substantial roadblock which nearly ended the trip. While "lunching" in Rutland, VT., a runaway truck took out two of the bikes. The owner of the truck offered to "on the spot" replace the machines and a hunt for replacements began. One was found quickly enough and the riders were about to give up when a second steed was sourced.
