Someone buy this!

No time or funds for it but this looks like a blast. A street-legal 465 2-stroke. What could go wrong? :lol3

A buddy wants to take his kid four-wheeling near Atlanta. Nothing crazy, just something to get out in a 4WD truck in. I've heard of a couple of places (the mud flats) but don't know the details.
