I bought this. Its a Minsk. Russian, 125cc, and its, well, basically the AK47 of bikes. Rugged, simple, easy to repair. It is built specifically to be used in countries where there are no roads. It will be for whatever they throw at us, perfect. 

These bikes are quite a common site all over the world, and in certain places, they are usually seen with members of the Taliban on them, carry AK 47s, and rocket launchers. 

In Minsk we trust, more than just a machine. Plus look at it, it’s a galleon carrier, a style statement, its, it’s a disaster!
