Christini AWD motorcycle - anyone drive one?
« on: July 08, 2018, 09:21:11 AM »
I'm familiar with Rokons, but am curious about the Christini's.  Anyone have any experience with them?  I keep thinking one of those,  lowered,  with a rekluse clutch,  would bethree ultimate hunting motorcycle.

nope, rode a ton of motorcycles and anytime I had a hill or obstacle there wasn't any weight on the front anyhow.  It's an expensive chunk of weight prone to failure.

Think I will stick to my TW for now.  Be interesting to see one and ride one.

My question is,where can you actually ride a motorcycle and hunt.....not in Washington. Or can you?

Depends on where you hunt.  If legal to ride yes.  Me and several others I know just use them for getting from camp to the area we are going to hunt.

The engineering in these things are cool. From their website, the military is using them also. I saw on a Youtube video they make AWD bicycles also.

Asking about experiences with the Christini.  I can ride my ktm 300exc, trials bikes, and CR's with the best of them, but know of their limitations.   2wd adds in places where you can't get speed or traction.   The rokon flat out works but is rough on the body.

dual sport model would be my choice.  Might have to trade in the honda fat cats.
