We have a Yamaha WR250R that's powerful enough to cruise on the highway, but light enough for a normal human to pick up and gets 90mpg.

Or you can go to NH and buy the original 2wd bike, the Rokon. They have a "Survivor Edition." "EMP Proof!" Hint, the bike may be EMP proof, but the Rider isn't.

if you think you can out run the apocalypse on that i'll be your bitch. [wink]
"Dont need to outrun the Apocalypse: just need to outrun you!"

TW200 will do 65, but manufacturer says 55 because of the tires. The Suzuki VanVan 125 and 200 use the same tires. It seems to be the official state bike of Alaska.

Cant go wrong with a XR100 or even a 200. Something older has easy points to work on ( bonus is EMP proof ) and can be pretty simple to work on plenty of parts all around, really the only down side is no electric's to run a light, but one can be installed on and installed with a side cover Mag.

An XR100 with points? Come again? And the model has been changed to CRF100F for about 10 years. Minor differences other than bodywork.

I thought about getting a Honda Ruckus to keep in the back of my truck / SUV. Then I'd have a bug-out vehicle inside a bug-out vehicle
