    Hey Fred,

    Already been there, and done that.

    Looks like a nice clean Rokon, if that is what you are looking for. They are great little bikes for what they were designed to do - which is dragging dead animals out of the woods. They are agonizingly slow and really would not be not much fun at all to ride on the single track trails that you and Betty do so well on.

    I liked the novelty of owning one, much more than I enjoyed the few times that I rode mine.

    Brian

    Didn't realize the Rokon wasn't all that much fun......never rode one.

    I found mine to be a disappointment.

    I am sorry to hear that, Phelonius.

    I would recommend that anyone considering purchasing a Rokon, first take a test ride to see if you are satisfied with its performance and capabilities.

    "....dragging dead animals out of the woods" -seems an apt description.
    Maybe when I'm old and decrepit needing an off-road mobility scooter to haul my carcass out of the woods I'll consider one.

    Yeah Fred me too. Plus a 50cc scooter to go store on pavement. Screw the power chair, runabout thing. Gets real bad training wheels.
