    On the Life Presurvers, you put it on your kid upside down, tie the straps wrong, or around the kids neck, he gets hurt, you and your lawer team sue the goverment. Easier for them just to destroy them......sad.
    I will bet you a cold one that is why the ATVs were destroyed.

    I have a KLT250, working with racks. Dont believe its mil but its pretty cool. Not sure why they werent more popular than hondas...

    The hub on the left side "locks out" by turning a dial, just like a jeep, so you could turn off the posi rear giving it one wheel peel. Great for not wearing out the tires and making tight turns on asphault. Once you got into the sand you would turn the dial again and lock the hub and would it go through sand. Very durable and reliable. Electric start only, no kick. Mine happens to be marpat USMC right now.

    I had on just like that. I really regret getting rid of it. I agree they are much nicer than Hondas.

    I think mid 80's is when they forced manufacturers to stop production of the 3 wheelers. 85' I think, because of the dangers of the machine. This may have been the reason for them being destroyed. I have never seen the Kawasaki 3 wheeler before now. If I see one I will know who to contact. good luck on your search.

    86 was the last year they were sold here in the US, but 88 was the last production year. The were sold over seas up until then. If you run across one let me know. I might have some money by then.

    They're trying to do it again with the UTV's. But Yamaha just won a big victory regarding it's Rhino.

    There will always be somebody looking for some one else to point the fingire at. I hate them as much as I hate liberals. Oh wait, they are usually one in the same.
