    On the TV show "Pawn Stars" last night they had a '60's trail bike "Trail Breaker" looked US made, had TWO WHEEL DRIVE, big tires, looked something like a TW200. Both wheels driven! Extra gas was stored in a gas tank built into the center of the front wheel!

    They still make them: http://www.rokon.com/products/trailbrkr.htm



    I bet the TW would give it a good run for the money, what do you think?

    That'd be a Rokon. Still being built today. First bike to cross the Darian Gap.



    I wish we could get them 'down-under'....

    And you can get a plow or a cultivator or a lawnmower for them, plus a water pump, a generator and more!!



    I would think a TW would do 85% of what it could do?

    A member on this board has a Rokon. He posted about it a few months ago on the old site. It's a really neat bike, and looks like it can get to places even a Quad wouldn't be able to get to.

    Many years ago a friend of mine had one. He kept the hubs empty so he could float it across deep water.Several times when we came across a deep water crossing he would just step off and wade beside the bike holding it upright. When he got to the other side he would smile and say " Lets see you do that with your SL-125"

    Arctic Cat built one too. The Cat was a little smaller. About '65.

    Rokon is built for off trails only .TW will out run it and fly up trails but Rokon will win on the steep stuff. It is 2x2 and no foot controls so you can use your feet as stablilizers and nothing to hang up on the underside. So you could say that if you want.

    This was at one of our meets.



    We had a Big wheel ride with us at one meet and it had to be pushed up several places because it just spun the rear wheel.

    I had a Rokon about 10 years ago. It was a neat bike but too slow to actually trail ride and very buzzy when you got up to speed. I looked into a 2 wheel drive Yamaha they where testing a few years back but it was about $7000 extra. I settled for the TW200. I think I made a good choice.
