Old Person has it right. That is probably an appropriated kettenkraftrad. On muddy backwater airfields they had no equal for towing planes to the runways.

Some of the vehicles with the very long single tracks for both wheels on the referenced page look like they could cause injury to one's backside if not aligned just right.

On my wish list is the Russian built Ural motorcycle. It is copied from the WW11 German army. It may look like an ordinary cycle with a side car, but both rear wheels are driven. Mind you, it is not as high on my wish list as it was years ago when walking 20 miles was no big deal.

I'll settle for ANY motorcycle. I sold my 1984 Yamaha Venture Royale to pay my father in law back for the down payment on our first house.

On a side note ... Welcome back to your home Expat ... I know you just LOVED our country and it's airport taxes and fees 😉

@BD: Thanks, it's good to be home again. Miami International is in my rear view mirror and will stay there! The TSA weenie looked at the screen from my scan and saw that there were 4 points of metal which corresponded EXACTLY with my suspenders. He even mentioned that it was my suspenders while he frisked me front and back. Dho!

You might have had an explosive down your pants thus needing the suspenders.

One could hope that something 'exploded' in his pants but I'm so tired I'd pass out and miss the whole thing.
