Good start but....

It's a good start. I would have gone with a DR650. Also, he needs a good 7mm Rem for the long stuff, and possibly a machete for the hand to hand stuff and then he should be ready for a life long quest of searching for twinkies.

You have to keep your eyes open for the warning signs!




Be up to date with all identification guides, and survival charts.




Then make friends with a girl who packs a lot of guns & blades, while looking hot shooting, jumping, stabbing, kicking, in all directions . . . . . and who's great in the sack when off duty. If she rides a BMW so much the better!

I am with you on the DR650. It is obviously the bike of choice for the zombie apocalypse. I must, however suggest that the humble crowbar is a better choice for hand to hand. Less likely to get stuck in a walker's head and useful for breaking into buildings.

I beg to differ. I don't know why people keep insisting on a machete or samurai sword or some shit. Think about it, with a disease that is transferable via bodily fluids, why in hell would you want to burst a sack of meat within arms reach of you? You're better off with a baseball bat.

And of course, ATGATT. Waterproof gear and facesheild down should keep you fairly bite and splatter proof.

I've got a K75. It will start right up in two million years when aliens discover the remnants of our civilization on this planet.

Sorry, I thought we were talking about the "from the grave zombies" not the 'bio-hazard unleashed zombies". The former type of zombies can only transfer the disease by biting you, and can only be killed by a deep penetration in the brain. I agree that waterproof ATGATT is definitely the way to go.

Late last summer, I was headed back to North Carolina after a trip out to Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho where I'd met my sons for a few days of riding -- they stayed in Washington when we moved here in 2007. When I got to the Mississippi, I found most of the bridges were still out from last year's floods. As it neared dark, I spotted an abandoned farm house looking lonely and surrounded by very tall grass. I turned around, rode through the grass where I thought the driveway had been, and parked around back where I set up my tarp, ate a can of beans, and went to bed.

A couple of hours later, I woke to thunder and lightening. A few minutes after that, the rain began to pour down. It was purely black all around. I heard one animal tear the life from another, presumably smaller, one. I felt disquieted which made sense in the thunderous din.

Then the screams began. At first I assumed someone was murdering hitchhikers in the old house. (It was so close to dark when I pulled in, I'd only glanced inside the place, saw its ruinous state, and assumed it was indeed abandoned.) What could I do to save the hitchhikers? I couldn't even distinguish my hand from the darkness.

In the darkest regions of my mind, I remembered my sons telling me all about . . . Zombies. That did it. My 57 year old heart went to the brink of self destruction and my mind ran away with me. I just trembled as quietly as I could and prayed. When the zombies are really there, right there in the black yard with you, but you can't see anything, what good are preparations?

Either the prayers worked, Bearshark the Bonneville T100 kept the zombies away, they didn't see me in the dark, or, maybe, I decided, it was a screech owl.

Regards, Chuck

One nite we decided to walk home from the bar. There was thick fog on the road and I heard a VW bug coming. I told my buddies to walk like Zombies in the road {sounded like a good plan when your drunk} Anywho..the bug got closer and saw us...he dropped down a gear and punch it...it took off and we laughed . 5 mins. later we hear a V8 coming so we do the same thing..This time the guyin a pick up punches it and heads right for us ..we ran to a fence, he jumped the grass and we had to jump the fence to keep from getting run over ...no more Zombie marches for us

Zombies are no joke my friend...

And those who want huge fire power to kill the soft headed mush brains are asking for it. I want a 22, with 10,000 round so CB...almost no noise and cheap as dirt.

Knives? Only for preparing food, I don't need any zombie juice splashed on me.

I know this is a motorcycle site but they are not going to work when the zombies show up...I would have to take my truck.

Forgot the main reason I was answering this! The .410 in the backpack. Excellent choice for a second weapon. Cheap ammo, enough power to poke a hole in anything and small. I got one of them also.
