My opinion. These bikes ARE NOT survival vehicles. Especially those with cheesy Chinese 2-strokers. However a good 4-stroke bike built for reliability would be invaluable during hard times such as loss of income, hyper inflation or scarcity of fuel.

Mm, what a shame. He would have made a great survivalist. Well, zombies won't get me. I keep my katanas sharp and my bows heavy.
Kletus, no bike can be a true survival vehicle. No vehicle can. Your best bet in a zombie apocalypse would be a horse. You can trade a horse for your life, food, supplies. You can sacrifice the horse to help you get out of a horde. A horse, with the right equipment can be lethal, stealthy, or a lure, but never two at the same time. A lethal horse will be equipped with heavy armor, and so would the rider. You need a Clydesdale for this. A stealthy horse will be equipped with boots to silence the hooves, and a muzzle to keep it quiet. The rider will have light armor, leather is most likely, and a scent blocker. A lure horse is just that. Noisy, and attractive to hordes. This horse will be equipped with high explosives to eliminate as many as possible while reducing the suffering of the horse. I prefer the Clydesdale because I will be hunting those zombies with a vengeance. I use swords and bows because they are silent, and can be repaired. The arrows can be retrieved. My arrowheads will be ejected from the shaft upon impact and detonate with shrapnel, shredding the brain, destroying the command center of the infection. I will be the one to rid the earth of that scourge, if humans don't destroy the planet first.

Heck no, we are just having a little fun and no slight is intended. But watch out he don't bite you.

4 stroke is probably the best choice for this application as they are more forgiving and not having to mix the fuel while there's a pack of zombies on your a$$.

You will eventually run out of fuel that you can either scavenge or pump. A horse runs on grass, apples, carrots, and the like.

I agree, 4 strokes are the best because of the reliability.

That they are.
But most people would want to use a motorized bicycle before the zombie apocalypse...

Something like this 4-stroke shifter with cargo baskets should keep you ahead of the zombies but still handy for quick store runs ;-}



If a zombie can catch you on that it is one frigg'n fast zombie so let him bite you, then you won't even need a motorized bike, you can run faster hehehe ;-}

I would kill it before I let it increase the sprinter population.
