Unlike modern off-road bikes these bikes were intended to go through the woods at a crawl and were light and simple enough to operate almost anyone could ride one. There's something to be said for a bike that allows you to gently visit the outdoors rather than blasting your way through it and get fantastic gas mileage doing it.
Great vid.
Thanks for posting.
Love the Honda trailies.

Enjoy the Holiday and safe riding in the new year.

I was drooling over that setup the other night. Watched the promo videos and they were, indeed, very suave. Bit outta this Santa's budget though. Still, I'd like to try one out for a bit. Looks like a blast!

Bring on the snow & ice!!

Okay Mother Nature, show us what ya got! The Austrian Punkin' Chucker is ready to rock & roll through some ice & snow now.
Here's the front tire all screwed up...




Here's the rear all screwed up. I wanted to try the street legal Shinko Radial trials tire to see how that works...








Handles just as expected on dry asphalt on the way home, not so well. Needs something slippery to grab onto...
