hands down klr diesel .. jp8 = burn anything .. fuel will vanish fast .. very fast .. jp8 will burn anything .. I was just discussing this with someone else . I want everything diesel , old mechanical oil burners like early 90's dodge cummins .. when all those gas cars are dead and out of gas , each one still has 5L of oil in the motor .. that oil will burn in a old diesel .. thats thousands of litres all over the place .. veg oil in supermarkets , any oil you can get your hands on basically .. the jp8 goes one further and burns Kerosene white fuel ect ..
Here is the ultimate end of world bike:
Best outfitted with a harpoon gun and a flaming chain whip.
And you might check out Trevor Williams 100% bio-diesel:
Claims a whopping 170-200mpg for a range of 600-700 miles to the stock fuel tank! Hopping without stopping.
Stunning sound and the smell of fish and chips will sap whatever fighting spirit left in adversaries.
Any way Diesel is the way. Military grade preferably.
The smog will give the landscape that haze and gloom for the perfect photo opp.
Don't forget to post a pic here.
I'll admit that I love Diesels. I have a ole 12 valve Cummins that gets great fuel mileage with around or over 600,000 miles on it now.
If the diesel KLR were available, I would have one in the garage already.
But the bad thing about the HDT is they are unattainable by us common folk.
If you can't get one, then it won't be that great for you!
If you are waiting for this bike, you may have already lost the EOW battle for survival. One of those moto mule trailers would come in handy also.
Gary Fisher 27 speed mountain bike...
Why, so I can die tired?
Interesting stuff! The apocalyptic bike should have blades on the hubs for zombie road slashing. Doesn't Ducati make a diesel now?
Oh they do: $13795, 2012 Ducati Monster Diesel, based on Monster 1100 EVO
Nice, ain't she?
Wouldn't want one for an EOW scenario, though.
Hey, why not an Ural Diesel?
Like this one:
Meet these at: http://www.dieselbike.net/ural/ural.htm
Now we're back on track. Even when the track ain't there no more
Sweet Ducati but you do realize it doesn't run a diesel fuel?
I forgot about the Ural diesel-that's not a bad choice considering you can get the two-wheel-drive sidecar version. I once read about one that could go through an entire time-zone between fill-ups!
How bout this one with the machine gun mounted in the sidecar--now we're talking!
This Duc don't run on diesel... There will more likely be zombies before any Ducati runs on diesel. This monster is a special model, partly designed by the Diesel clothing company founder.
Appreciate the clarification, kyns!
We await the "Old Navy," and the "Dockers" model Ducati!
Why run when you can get a Permit! Unfortunately I'm only good for Wisconsin.
I don't think there will be any laws at that point.
My Alpina trials bike. I figure with all the dead bodies & carnage it will be like one big trials section.
A good Jumping Mule would beat any bike where I would be heading.
Not to mention They are pretty darn tough.
A diesel bike would be nice but hard to lay hands on. I wouldn't expect any petroleum-powered vehicles to be much use after a complete breakdown of society. Like mentioned above, any remaining fuel would be just about useless within a year, and even if you did get hold of a bunch of fuel stabilizer, how much fuel are you really going to have? I'd just use the motorized vehicles to get as far away from population centers as I could and then probably just ditch them.
You can actually cover a lot of ground on foot if you try, and you can get over a lot of terrain that no vehicle could ever hope to tackle. Leave most of your stuff behind, pack light, and hoof it into the woods. I feel like having and using a vehicle would just make you more of a target than anything else.
Learn from Hollywood:
You'll need all the fuel you can amass to make those explosions look cool.
And save the diesel for transportation. You could make your own bio-diesel, indefinetely, but when? You are busy saving the world a day at a time?
Solution: get yourself a work detail pronto, delegate man.
No kidding, let them earn your serving and protecting.
And get one with an original machine-gun mount.
Don't worry about corpses lying about. Enough critters to deal with those.
Besides you have 2WD. Splash along.
I salute you Knights Of The Roaring Days
with one more, while the fuel is still plenty
