Adventure ATVs Best Gear Guns & Gear Survival

The Ultimate Predator Assault Vehicle

When hunters think of all-terrain, off-road hunting vehicles, ATVs and UTVs are often the only options considered, but for many, two wheels may be better than four. Consider this: Dual sport motorcycles are easier to trailer to the hunting area than an ATV, and, if going short distances, they may not need to be trailered at all, as they are street legal. Most dual sport bikes can also pull double-duty as a commuter vehicle during the week—getting over 50 mpg! They are extremely maneuverable on tight trails and can access places ATVs or UTVs cannot. They also cost about half of a UTV.

While pretty functional right off the showroom floor, there are things that can be done to make them even more effective for hunters. To prove it, we sent a 2006 Kawasaki KLR 650, to Jim Pearson of Cycle Tech to create the ideal two-wheeled hunting machine.

    I would have put a padded shooting bar across those handlebars……….comes in useful for fast shots at rapidly fleeing game without having to dismount. Down south in Australia trail bikes are a common sight on the pig flats and usually the rifles are slung over the shoulder. Nice looking setup however :)
