    As much as I hate quads, they are a much more viable option for military use. Driving w/ NODS on an ATV at night is tough enough, on a bike it would be hell, plus a quad allows you to carry your ruck, extra gear, batteries, ammo, food, water, etc...

    Not to mention that you can add your squad weapon of choice and have a very mobile platform. :wink:

    I supply the military (via one of my customers) a fair amount of ATV and motorcycle accessories and consumables. Kawasaki is the largest segment, followed by Polaris and Yamaha. But there's a little bit of everything.
