    It's about time!

    Okay, these photo not only show off my new Rokon, but prove definitly once and for all that I am, like my avatar, a gimpy old man with an accordion.
    Now about the bike. It is a Rokon Ranger. Not to be confused with the older rangers, this one has everything that the top of the line trailbreaker has.
    Plus, it is street legal. The older Rangers did not have the leading link front end, but were absolutely rigid front and back. This one also has a shock absorber under the saddle
    for less butt pain. It has a whopping 7 horsepower Kohler engine and a transmission with 3 gears to select from. In granny gear, and it is indeed a granny,
    It probably won't stop for anything it won't fall out of. It can skid logs, pull a plow or harrow, probably tow a jeep. The book says granny tops at 10 mph
    but I don't believe that, but then It's not broken in yet so I don't want to scream it at warp speeds in granny yet.
    In top gear it is suposed to go 35 mph at 36 hundred rpm. I don't know that either, it doesn't have the license plate on it yet, and I don't want to contribute to the revenue
    enhancement patrol.
    Nuff of the blather, here are some photos, don't get in a hurry, I can only post them one at a time.
    BTW the box in the hack in my accordion which I use as a WMD. That's weapon of music destruction.

    That is about the coolest bike I've ever seen! Rigged out with rod holders and a big ass cooler that would be the sweetest surf fishing vehicle EVER!! The shorts with velcro sneakers were a nice touch too!

    That's my ATGAT riding uniform.
    You may note the cruel winter weather under my coconut trees that grew from coconuts I buried three years ago
