    The way to travel

    If this massive Global Expedition Vehicles International truck became stuck or stranded, the Yamaha TW200 stored in the rear trunk could be lowered to the ground with the onboard crane and used as a quick getaway vehicle.

    Those sure are some fancy Overlanders. Out west never seem to see these things in any locations more difficult to reach than where you could take your average FireBall motorhome or travel trailer.

    Sort of like Adventure bikes that never get to go on the adventures seen in the sales brochure it is likely that for many their machines off-road capabilities rarely gets fully utilized.

    Have they widened the road at Black Bear Pass now? I read about a lot of riders going over the pass. I would never have made it as far as this driver. Crazy dumb.




    So, the idea of a Toyhauler Camper was thought of a long time ago. I wonder if Fireball actually made one of these or if it was just a concept.

    Black Bear Pass has been widened since that photo. They still have accidents every year.
