    Yes....I rode one....once....that was once to often.....heavy...awkward …..increase in traction could not make up for the lack of speed and the ability to maneuver ….. I suppose under some circumstances they would be the answer....

    I love Rokons. A bit pricey, but they'll go anywhere.

    The original 2 stroke Rokons (engine made by Chrysler) could literally climb a tree provided you had a rope or a winch. No oil starvation at intense angles, unlike a 4 stroke. Fueling may be a bit rough but it'll do it.

    I've owned a couple one 4 and a 2 stroke. The 4 was by far the nicest. Easier to start, quite and smoother to ride. The 2 stroke was like riding a chainsaw. Sure they will go through anything but at 5 MPH.

    I watched a video sometime last week and saw a Russian 2WD called a Taurus. One can tear the whole thing down into 5 or 6 parts, including the wheels, in about 5 minutes, pack it in the back of a car, relocate, and reassemble in about 5 minutes, and ride again. Fat tires like the BW. Pretty cool apocalypse bike. But if I was buying Russian, I think I'd go with a Ural sidecar bike. A guy in town has one, and boy, it's a snappy looking machine.
