I have trawled through literally thousands of military photos on my computer and this is the only Red baron photo I could find. I don't know if this is his bike 'Lola' or another bike he owned or even somebody else's that he was posing with. I believe the make of bike is a Voss, though I don't know the cc. it looks rather small, possibly around 350. Hope that helps.

That's Werner Voss.

Interesting, several of the better known early fliers on both sides had motorcycles.
Need for speed? Adrenalin junkies?
