The Beast Electric Off Road ATV Style Bike


Recommended Posts


I watched this thing develop over the last year and it just got more expensive---- and the ground clearance is probably a whopping 3"

 

But --it doesnt need a receptacle because it is solar charged ------the foot plate is a solar array...

 

I have something up my sleeve for this spring ---i will post it then..

 

In the meantime the Makro Gold Racer is here so i will upload a video---dont make fun SS, or CP--

I just talk with one of the dealer they show here in San Antonio Tx..He did have one of the ones that first came out but it was under powered. It was better on the road than off. He said he thinks the newer models may have more power with two motors but less run time. I was told to check back with him in June and just maybe he'll have one then.

G'day,

 

There is a similar bike being developed at present in New Zealand for the farmer market  http://www.ubcobikes.com/ 

The pricing has not been officially announced yet, but ... it looks like it will be around NZ$7,000. The manufacturer here will need to have a price well below $7,000 for them to sell in any numbers to Kiwi farmers. I like the bare bones nature of this NZ design, but being electric, and the high purchase price, kills it for me. 

 

I've been using Honda CT110 bikes since the 1980s but as Honda are no longer making them I will need to get something else shortly. My current bike has over 80,000 ks (after 5 years) on the clock and I expect to get to 100,000 ks ... if I take care of it!  The best aspect of the Honda CT110 is that its so light I can easily lift it out if it gets stuck in mud or snow. All of mine have had hi and lo ratio so I can gear it down to get up any steep hill. It does have a problem getting through water and will cut out if water splashes on the motor. I wonder how electric bikes handle going through streams, or even rivers.

 

Petrol bikes still seem to have all the advantages over electric bikes for accessing remote areas. Electric bikes are probably only for getting around town.

I traveled many miles in Plumas county on my Honda 110...or 90. 100 miles to the gallon. I had a very big box on the back and could camp with tent, detector etc...I wish they still sold them in California...

      I am finally after 5 long months going to get to swing the GPZ again I think, crossing my fingers I’m not jinxing myself being optimistic. In the beginning of May I blew a head gasket that took out my radiator frying a cylinder and time for a new engine...that’s the short story. So far I’ve put in a new stroker engine, new transmission, new fuel system, new gears from 4.10 to 5.13, new radiator, new control arms, new control arm mounts, new toyo M/T’s and engine computer tuning. First shop I took the Jeep to was a disaster and in the end everything they did I threw away, fortunately my luck improved and the Jeep is almost ready to go, transmission shop misaligned the driveshaft that made for an uncomfortable drive home and now I’ve got and appointment at Adams Drive Shaft to get everything balanced on this coming Monday, I still intend to change the shocks and springs but this has all gone on too long and I really need to find a nugget or at least go look!
      while all this was happening I snagged a good deal on a used Aliner Scout lite with an off road package, the off road just gives better ground clearance everything else is standard duty. In the Aliner at 10 feet long and 1200#’s while I’m 6’4” Still gives me headroom I can at stand up in the center and the bed is comfortable, I think this will work out otherwise there’s going to be a discounted Aliner for sale. I have never ever camped out on or near where the claims are or where I’m prospecting so this will be a totally new experience, I do day trips or rent a room someplace doing lots of driving. I’m a little concerned about camp security, getting back in some place where turning around might be difficult and beating the camper to pieces dragging it along dirt roads (I know, slow down). I’m wondering what solutions other have found?

      Hi all... I'm starting to make plans for Winter in the AZ gold fields, anyone on here own an RV park before I give my cash to a non nugget hunter. :o)

      I was on my way to the central Indiana goldfields this weekend when I pulled off the Interstate highway at the  rest area and spotted this ? Kinda looks like a Unimog, but fitted up with a backhoe and dozer blade? Just what us prospectors might need....

      Upgraded from a Toyota Troop carrier(28yrs old) back in 2012 to a Hilux 4WD. Heading off this morn to new prospective area hit a bump not a jarring jolt going slowly in low range. Front strut busted limped home and removed photo below.
       

       
      Independent suspension, nice ride but not impressed but I do know I`m going back there, the Goddess of Gold is trying to keep me away.

      Northern Nevada gravel roads will tell you when your trucks tires are getting to thin! My last trip there, I couldn't plug the thumb size hole and had to trust my old spare for the last couple of days of the hunt and to tow the camper back to NorCal. I also noticed my hunting boots were getting my socks awful dirty and a few little rocks would sneak in as well, as I would boot a possible target. Well we made it home and ready to make some new tracks in the goldfields. Hunt report, after that big storm in the Rye Patch area the ground was hot and stingy with letting go of the gold. But, no skunks in our party of 8...beer was cold at camp for soothing the looks of our pokes and Baby & I, have some new shoes! Until the next hunt,
