Mini bikes on D-Day

D-Day, the day of the Normandy landings, initiating the Western Allied effort to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi occupation during World War II. And even back then, the mini bike was used by the military as Herman mentioned in this article.

My partner pointed me at an article in Spiegel Online also showing a mini bike in action on D-day. It seems to be a different type than the one pictured above, but it is a mini bike nonetheless!
