The figures of the Italeri 1/72nd scale plastic German Motorcycle set.
Motorcycles were often used for recon units, so a man stopped and sitting on his bike is a good one.
This is a very natural pose and will work on the single bike or the sidecar bike too.
The sidecar has a choice of two occupants. One with a light machine gun.
The other passenger has a machine pistol. He is in the looking at the camera pose. Note the gas mask carrier on his lap. This was typical for seated German soldiers because you can't lean back on the metal canister.
