    If they're trying to sell a product that virtually no one has heard of before, much less ever seen, it probably would have been smarter to have included LARGER pictures. Not too bright...

    Maybe something like that but with paddle tires would be good for the deep sands like in Glamis, California?

    I dont know much about bikes.
    But do you know those BMW motorcycles that are like 1/3 cruiser 1/3 sport bike 1/3 dirt bike?
    There is a guy who rides one around here and it has tires like that put on it.
    He says it's really handy during washouts because he doesnt sink in the mud.

    That particular BMW is called the GS (there are different variations in the GS series such as engine size and engine configuration). They are coined as Adventure Motorcycle. A dual sport that more or less does it all.

    Actually this niche is an up and coming niche. KTM also has their Adventure series, as is the Suzuki V-Strom series, Triumph Tiger series, and the venerable KLR650 from Kawasaki.

    One of their dealers phone numbers is from NH, might have to take a ride to check them out. Kind of reminds me of a bike called Rokon that was made in Keene, NH back in the '70's I believe
