    I once ran across one out on the trails. That was some 25+ years ago though. The chevron tread tractor tires sure seemed out of place.

    That's a pretty good price, if it's OE.

    Here's some background

    factory is in rochester, nh, I have a couple friends that work there

    also best place to buy EazyRizer bike lift (30% less than anyplace online)

    I only have limited experience riding one, all I can say is 2wd is very different handling compared to what your use too

    older models may have B&S engine, newer ones have Honda engine, not sure what year they switched

    500 mile+ range with fuel stored in wheels

    There is a place just outside of Burlington that actually sells them. It seems the utility of a four wheeler would make it a much better investment.

    Wow, I thought they were all in NH. other states actually find some use for them? That's startling.

    Never ridden one, but have heard they are not much fun on a trail...loads of fun where there is no trail.

    i wonder what the balancign is like, or what it is like when the rear tire spins and the front grips... strange i would think

    automatic? ehh...doesn't seem like that much fun

    but it doesn't seemed like it was designed for fun as much utility, right?

    and even so, won't that suck, since over extremely treacherous terrain, you're more likely to tip over sideways than a 4-wheeler?

    your more likely to tip with a 4wheeler inless you have an inner ear problem and can't stand up

    if your idea of fun is speed, then they are no fun, if your idea of going anywhere is fun, then they are a blast, without much skill, you can go anywhere that a skilled trials rider can go and probably more
