Zombie Apocalypse - Motorcycle or UTV?
Tuesday, May 29, 2012
Now that we’ve seen our first zombie eating a Florida man’s face
, it’s time to bug out. Fortunately, the outbreak is in Miami, which is about as far away from the MotoUSA headquarters as possible. But, even if Rudy Eugene, aka the Miami Zombie, is the first, the virus is bound to spread quickly.
I’ve got several motorcycles, ATVs and side-by-sides in the garage to choose from. I’m most comfortable on a dirt bike, but they just don’t go far enough on a single tank. I’m leaning toward the KLR650 project bike
for its long range, nimbleness, storage racks, true on-off capability and abundance of parts. Plus, we installed Dunlop 606 dual sport tires
so I can head for the hills with confidence. Unfortunately, it’s suffering from an electrical gremlin so I might have to leave it behind.
In that case I’m taking a different Kawasaki – the Teryx4
. Then I won’t have to swerve as much – just lock in the differential and run ‘em down. I can also haul other survivors and plenty of spare gas and supplies, and the new centrifugal clutch/CVT will help avoid the dreaded belt failure.
The flesh-eating has begun. Which would you take?
