    Oh yeah, I've seen those before. It's an all-terrain motorcycle. Uses a bendable track so you can steer. Not a very tight turning radius though. But it would in theory take you most places, probably even better than a Rokon Trail Breaker. Don't know if they're in steady production yet but, if so, I can't imagine they'd be cheap.

    Well, if you got mad skills like this, an all-terrain motorcycle isn't *that* much a necessity. I could see it being somewhat handy for the rest of us. Especially around snow or slush or deep mud.
    But a good dirt bike in experienced hands can take its rider a great many places, 'tis true.

    I like watching the super talented fellas on those stunt bikes, but I have to say that being someone who has road motorcycles all his life street and dirt, if you wanted a good all around all terrain rig that would do about as well in deep snow and mud or sand as it does on dry land I'd say either a track bike like this or one with much wider balloon type tires will excel above what one of those little stunt bikes will do in the same situations.

    Aggressive tread and wide footprint is ideal for sand, snow and mud and those stunt bikes don't have any of that.
    They do great for what they're designed for and much of what can be done with them is all about the rider rather than the machine.

    I like most all things with wheels and an engine which includes tracks also, its all good.

    Hello Trey :) The photo is WW1 era and the British are responsible for its construction.

    Just the thing for a quick run down to the shops ;)
