For all the Cheapie 650 gas mile braggers

No interest or affiliation - just laugh for the Weestrom guys who make their own air filters from FRAM Chevy filters and use tupper ware for saddlebags....

These rarities do pop up. I'd love one.
The military wants to have one fuel for its fleets, diesel or jet A, whatever goes in jets.
Too bad they are only at military auction and not available at the dealer like the civilian Humvee was.
Rattle on, baby!

I read an article in cycle world a few yrs ago about the military bikes. @ 100 mpg is accurate, top speed @95mph. The sergeant in charge of the bikes said he has seen them fall off a 30 foot cliff and ride away, with minor damage. (Didn't say what shape the rider was in.) Of course, a Ural with a sidecar and 50 cal. is a nice option too.

I don't want a pickle, I just want to ride my motorsickle. A. Guthrie.
