Hello all you off-roaders...hmmmmmm, well, I guess with the rising price of fuel (which, I'm told is only the start!), perhaps we will all have to get our "explorer" kicks with beefed-up, knobbly - tyred scooters! Not the same, tho, is it? macho can you get on a Vespa all-terrain? Still, I guess manufacturers will have a ball developing the tow-along campers!! Then, how many mean, off-road assesories can you purchase for a Vespa?....then there is always the all-terrain models to look at ( pastural thingies) for thought....hahahaahha

You may not be far off the mark! On a similar subject .. beefed up bikes..
pushbikes. On Easter Friday, I had the Prado packed up, with the trailer and two quads behind and was heading for the freeway, when I noticed some bloke
( adult ) on a motorised "chopper style" pushbike. No helmit, no shoes, no shirt, and no brains. He was sitting right up my date at about 50k. I excellerated to 70k before I started to pull away from him. Talk about an accident waiting to happen.
And the comment from my 13yo son .... "I want one of those Dad!"

Ray I've got a trailer I pull behind my road bike. Weighs <60kg empty. It can carry all our camping gear/food/grog for a few days away easily.

It's shod with road tyres, but wouldn't take much to change over :-))

I get 15-18 km/l on an 1100 road bike, even when towing. AND NO FITCH FITTED :-)

I reckon I could do even better towing it behind a 600 chook chaser..........

You could always start with roofscooter2's idea and go bush in an X90.
Maybe it won't be long and he will be driving the biggest beast offroad LOL.

Cheers Trevor.
