I'd like a steel framed mountain bike, the older kind without suspension, and some slime tires.

Far too complicated, as soon as the flux capacitor went out on that beast you'd be shit out of luck. Screw doing the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, you'd be zombie chow.

Everyone knows you gotta have lights when fighting off the zombies ... plus the sidecar gives you somewhere to keep the chainsaw.

Is one of those lights attached to a stool?

Here you go boys. No amount of zombies will stop this thing. Gas might be an issue. Maybe it could be run of veggie oil ?!

Bad ass, an XT or a TW would definitely be more "go to bike" of choice. So many people in this thread aren't going to survive the first 48 hours.

I think you're the only one who posted an actual practical bike.

Others posted bikes that were either:

Too wide, limiting where/what path they can go..

To heavy, making them cumbersome

To much of a gas hog, people not thinking about the dwindling supplies...

Not enough range

Where as your little air cooled bikes like the XT, TW, Super Sherpa, and what not are great end of days bikes. Several reasons include

#1 - Air cooled. No need to worry about hoses, pumps, and fluids that aren't needed.

#2 - Easy as pie to work on and maintain. Adjusting the valves can literally be done in under 15 minutes. I do mine while the oil is draining...

#3 - Fuel Mileage... 70mpg is going to be much wanted when fuel supplies start dwindling... If you prepared properly for the end of days, you'll hopefully have put on a Clarke tank as well. Now you can go 300 miles in between your need for fuel.

#4 - Lightweight! Good chance you'll be off the beaten path, and the last thing you want to do when you drop your bike running from zombs, is struggle to pick the fucker up again!

#5 - Reliability. Both the engines in the XT and TW are bombproof. Keep the cleaner clean, and the oil changed, and they will keep you moving.
