Snowbound? Try a Snow Hawk!


I've been feeling guilty for a number of months. Despite torrential rains and nasty wind storms, riding to work all Winter has been possible for me. I know that a lot of you have been inundated by snow storms which has severely limited your riding. Like I say, I can hardly enjoy my rides, I feel so guilty. ( care to buy oceanfront property in Arizona? )

In my fervent desire to help you all find a solution to this single track deprivation ( note the emphasis on single track, not two wheels ) I can now offer you a way to commute in the heavy snow. Drum roll, please! We proudly unveil the Snow Hawk!

This single track vehicle will handle snow covered highways, sidewalks, yards, and the occasional pedestrian unlucky enough to get in your way. Just in case you might be thinking there's no thrills in a vehicle like this, I took it out for a test ride. Check it out in full adrenaline mode.
This beast has a Rotax 800 High Output motor. 140 horsepower pushing 410 pounds less rider. Yee freaking haw!!!

I'm also testing it out on mud flats. My thinking is that I have a little more time to present the mud flat test. Mud slides don't happen too much in our part of the world. I'll limit my mud test to short cuts around traffic only. The biggest issue I'm having is with vision. My CAD / CAM program is feverishly working on a built-in sprinkler system for the visor. Mud riding would definitely be a solo sport. Pity the fool who rides behind me! Come to think of it, perhaps the mud version would be perfect for commuting in Washington DC. Those folks are quite adept at mud slinging and side-stepping.

Should you wish to acquire further information, here is the web site link:

This is a real product. I get no commission so I am sharing this out of the goodness of my heart. Don't say I never did anything for you!

Miles and smiles ( don't smile too much when riding in the mud, though )
