    I've been scrounging the internet looking at farm bikes, military bikes, third world freight hauling bikes or anything which might be a source for ideas applicable to the TW. Add your faves to the pile if you wanna.



    First up, the Honda Motra. Only made for 2 years in the '80's and sold only in the Japanese market. Check out the top view. This little thing was all rack. Stick your Ruckus:

    Anything ever made by Rokon, now or ever. Two wheel drive. Wheels that held extra water and fuel. It even floats:

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    My fave would be the one I learned on......the Kawasaki Trail Boss 5 speed Hi-lo tranny







    This bike survive until the KE100s



    It's the reason I went for a T'Dub and didn't look for something as large as a 650

    Hi-lo definitely on the list of requirements. Makes the tiny, mighty, even a CT90. Gizmow's dual sprocket setups got this wired, short of an actual hi-low box.

    Thanks for the link, the Motra is another bike I'd love to have! Rokon's are amazing machines, one of these days ...

    Shineray GY-7, Honda clone Chinabike. Rough as a cob, but everything you need including a 5 gallon tank, backup CDI unit, front and rear racks. Farm bike on steroids:

    Yep Rokons are cool. I keep threatening my dad, that I'm going to buy him one and make him ride around Inverness or his cabin along the Scott River. I periodically remember them and search multiple venues while day dreaming at work.

    That Shineray GY-7 is another nice one, be great for all the 7 feet tall people out there. At 5'5'' I'll stick with the T Dub, I hope real trail bikes make a comeback for us slow guys.

    I've never even seen one, but The Raccoon....http://www.hydraulicinnovations.com/raccoon.htm....might need to add a suspended seat and/or keep tire pressure low being its a rigid.



    Sold bike.

    The leaf spring seat is the "suspension". That thing is cool.



    Can't find any info on Ronnydog's Farmbyke. Interesting trailer hitch and a "proper" suspension.
