Wtaf is this thread even about?
1 Unless the stat is from a years old search, no they didn't1 google says that there's 8 million motorcycles in the US
2 and all of them can carry enough gasoline to cover 1000 miles without stopping. 3 Some can manage twice that. 4 Some can average 100 mph when there's no cops to worry about, too. Think about what that means. No place in the lower 48 states. is out of reach of millions of people, with just one night's ride and maybe 5 one night's hike. You're not nearly as "remote" as you think you are. Google also says 6 15-20 million bicycles are sold in the US EVERY YEAR. So there's 100 million of them around, A lot of them are sized for little kids, of course, But the US, all 3200 miiles of it, has been crossed in 8 days on a bicycle, by a number of people. With a gel seat cover, 7 anyone can, in a week or 2, get hardened in to pedal 100 miles per night, on relatively flat terrain. For $40 each, you can get solid rubber tires, so a flat is never an issue, either. 8 Millions of people can reach you in a week or 2 and they WILL be trying to do so, too, if shtf.
Thank you for doing this.1 Unless the stat is from a years old search, no they didn't
2 Not a single one can w/o modification which may decrease safe handling and increase danger to the rider
3 See #2 and at least double the safety factors and quadruple your BS factor
4 A bike either can or cannot maintain 100mph. Average is determined by the operator, not the machine
5 I ride my bike, not take it on hikes but you do you
6 Holy shit, you got sumpthin right, congrats!
7 I didn't realize a gel seat heals the disabled, how come you're the only one that knows?
8 Well, I'm not cleaning the toilet or feeding them.
Thanks, that was fun. Tell another story ? ? ?
