Have any of you know of any company that make a 2WD scooter with fat tires, like a Rokon ?.

Or do you know who sells new or used Rokons? For off-road travel and climbing virtually nothing can outdo them. But I haven't seen them advertised for a long time.

Any info or websites freatly appreciated. Thanks as usual. :tg:

Turboman,

I actually own one (2004 Trailbreaker) that I use primarily for puttering around the house and for various yard chores. Give me a shout if you have any specific questions.

Here's a site that I usually visit for tips on maintenance or info about "Romps" .

www.RokonWorld.com

Aren'tthose long exposed front drive chains on the left hand side a pain?

Not really, checking the spring tension is just part of the"pre-ride" steps you need to perform.At the base of each fork is a kingpin that is adjustable and allows you to increase or decrease tension. The real problem riders need to watch out for is debris build up between the chain and sprocket. As you can imagine, this can eitherpop the chain off the sprocket or bend the sprocket's teeth. Due to this "design feature", it's not a real good mudder.

It's not the kind of vehicle you want to ride if your buddies are riding quads.....they'll leave you in the dust since the top end of machine isn't much more than 15-20 mph. Even at those speeds, the vibration is very noticeable cause there are no frame dampeners or wheel suspension.

The vehicle'slow end torque gives it theability to climb 60 degree grades. Also, since it's much narrower than a 4-wheeler, you're able to run along deer trails and traverse side-hills without the worry of rolling over. What's most amazing is it's only a 6-hp Kohler, but given it'slow gearing, it can tow about 3,000 lbs.

Later,

Buwahnah

Someteamarewe,

A former Rokon dealer out of Calif is now an exclusive Eco Rider dealer: http://www.ecorider.us/

If you got the time to search about the history of why he jumped from Rokon to the Eco Rider, you can check it out on www.rokonworld.com.
