Geez, I'm a tree hugger and yet love riding off road with my 1200 and 800GS.

What's with the anti-tree hugger attitude?

Here in California tree huggers hate dirtbike riders. Maybe it's different in Canada eh? 800 and 1200 gs? Maybe ride dirt roads. Not offroad.

But the even crazier thing is we love trees! where else are we going to get any facking shade? So we love trees, just not trail closing tree "huggers" but we love trees too, dont hug them, but run into them from time to time..


and the only thing missing from the Mars Rover? a facking ADV STICKER!

I disagree dicky, it's the pinnacle of human technology. Besides, it puts us that much closer to getting the galactic empires flying dirtbikes, the ones from return of the Jedi. Robotic limbs n such. No more arm pump or whoops!

1. Is it really offroading on Mars when Mars has no roads?

2. Are they using the OHV funds to pay for this?

3. 2.5 billion dollars, is it worth it?
