Why didn't the paratroopers want to use the bike? Also, how fast is it? Seemed slow.

The engine unit is post WW2, the bike itself was regularly used during WW2. This would probably have been a better idea then the small wheeled Welbike that was the ancestor of the Corgi/Papoose.

I would enjoy riding that BSA with my Enfield rifle slung over my shoulder.
I used to go deer hunting with a rifle (M70, M98K, or LE#4Mk1, LE#5Mk1, P14, I have a few) slung over my back. Actually brought a deer home slung on this bike (with the M98K). About 1984.
