    The go anywhere ATV

    Great concept. Worth watching to the end.

    A "gun free zone" is tyrannies playground.
    I carry a gun to give me options, not a single solution.

    More information on the Russian Tarus, it's current cost is less than $1K. The big version that is seen in Robs clip weighs about 165 pounds, top speed 37 mph. A gallon of gas will let you ride for about 3 hours. It has a 4 stroke engine.

    They plan to make it available here in kit form sometime in the future.

    From this site, The true history of Rokon motorcycles by Bob Gallagher they have been around since the early 60's.
    Another of the original ideas patented by Mr. Fehn was the hollow aluminum wheel, each of which holds 4.5 gallons of liquid ballast or fuel.

    I know a guy that had a Rokon back 40 years ago. He said they suck! The big front tire makes it suck, is what he said. Bitch to steer, cant handle any ruts on a trail + a bunch of other shit.

    Seems much cheaper than buying and boarding a horse.

    It is harder to pull a horse over a boulder, or fit it in you sino-euro subcompact car....
    It is pretty cool, but I could not see me riding one.
    The caliber of the man counts more than the caliber of his gun.

    I poke Badgers with spoons....
