    Hi Jim,



    Very cool!



    I can't wait hear to your first impressions and ride reports - both on the road and off road.



    I am jealous. Want to trade for a Rokon? It is all wheel drive also.

    I've looked into those Christini motorcycles pretty extensively. They are very capable machines and will be a ton of fun. Lucky you indeed!

    Brian , I have two rokons .



    I have to find some stylish hand guards and a larger shield . I think it is made for standing up and riding and That 4x4 seat just isn't going to do the job.

    I have a Jimbo shield wedged in and it seems to be staying .I haven't been on many trails. It is geared high so lower gearing is planned .Lots of power.I have been easy on that part. real smooth with the long shock travel. It vibrates lots and more noise but it's twice the cc of my tw. I have maybe 10hrs on it now. Been pimping it a little bit with handguards,shield and rack. With snow on the way and rain I am not getting much time on it.

    To be honest, I'm not sure how a Christini works entirely, but I'd imagine you need to do some reading before you change gearing. Changing just the rear and on an AWD/4x4 causes problems in a hurry. You want your front to still spin slower than/at the same rate as the rear, to a controllable extent.
