pee-essss

back in the day (mid '60s) when I was 8-9 year old kid , I was one of a dozen or so kids that had a minibike
mine a was a pretty typical "No Name" bike like this




couple of the "rich kids" had Rupps
(They were pretty badazz)

But one kid had a Honda Minitrail 50

it just plain out classed everything

I had a Rupp Enduro. I wasn't rich, just saved for two Summers to buy it. The larger Rupp the Roadster was faster than the Minitrail but the Minitrail did much better on a flat track.

A mini is a good option for quick trips around the campsite. I can't imagine being on one for more than ten minutes at a time though.


at 15, I'd steal my brother's Honda 450 Scrambler and take it for joy rides
(til he figured it out started hiding the key):angry:
My little brother rode my dirt bike, so I hid the key. Next time I went to ride, it had been hot-wired. I traded him riding time for mechanical work, since he had the time to outsmart anything I could do to stop him.

ake a look at a Rokon.

never heard of em
so I googled ...

they look pretty badazz
sealed up well and w/2 wheel drive sure oughta go places
But for $8k, there's not too many places they could go that a 4x4 quad couldn't go too..AND have way more utility


they are pretty badazz though
If I was one of Mike's custys with more money than brains, I'd have one "just because" :cool:
