In wake of the Zombie Preparation Part I, I decided to expand and outline some transportation options and stealthy mean for dealing with those pesky zombies.
Everyone knows I am a fan of everything of anything with wheels…one to eighteen…I love them all. I am lucky enough to be the owner of a few cars, trucks and motorcycles and love my mountain bike and beach cruisers.
When the zombies attack you will have to make a decision: get out town quick or sneak away slow. Here are my picks.
Get out town quick starts with the Conquest Knight XV. The Knight XV defines the future of the ultra-luxurious, handcrafted fully armored SUV. This one-of-a-kind, V10, 6.8-litre, Bio-fuel powered SUV was inspired by military vehicle designs and features security appointments that are unrivaled in today's SUV marketplace. The vehicle is built on a super duty specially modified F550 Ford chassis platform (making parts and service easily accessible globally). Complete with a Ford, V10, 6.8-litre gas engine with E-85 Ethanol Conversion system added, (referring to as Flex Fuel engine) Flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs) are designed to run on gasoline or a blend of up to 85% ethanol (E85). The diesel engine is also available as an option with 400 HP and 500 ft lbs. torque (approximately). The vehicle comes fully armored in accordance with H.P White’s Ballistic Laboratory Inc.’s Quality Control, the leader in defense testing armor.
Not only is it fast and green it is packed with more armor then the Pope Mobile.
The next option is a 74 Bronco complete with 6 inches of lift, 35 inch mudders, Ford 408 cu in stroker and NV4500 5 speed transmission. Rounding out with a full cage and custom exhaust it is ready to rock on a moments notice. There isn't much that can stop this bronco as I have seen it roll over just about anything.
Next you have a 2002 Suzuki Hayabusa. Lowered 2 inches and stretch 4 inches with a 230 mm rear tire and PM aluminum wheels. Complete with Yosh cams, full titanium exhaust, body kit and painted matte black for stealth. The bike has clocked over 200 mph on the street…not sure I believe the speedometer but it read 200 mph plus. Call Ivy or Chad at Metairie Customs in Louisiana for speed verification.
Hayabusa means "bird of prey" in Japanese and this bike is no exception, especially after shaving 150+ lbs off the factory model.
Rounding out the list is a personal favorite, the Fortune HANEBRINK Electric All-Terrain Vehicle. Comes complete with on-demand hybrid electric system and the latest in bicycle technology. Crank the throttle and the 600-watt motor powers the HANEBRINK to speeds up to 20 mph. The bike is as cool as it looks and rides over anything in it's path. With about one hour of ride time and a three hour charge window this is a must for zombie evading.
If you want to go faster, just start pedaling. Totally silent, totally green and will go anywhere you point it.
I can vouch for HANEBRINK vehicle as I have personally tested it and it is a blast. I hope in the near future you will see you riding one of these in Newport Beach.
When I think of the word “stealth”, two things come to mind. Strider Knives and PSE Compound Bows. I have experience with compound bows and am a sucker for horsepower and big kinetic energy; PSE’s bows shoot upwards of 360 fps and have a stealthy look to them. With 360+ fps you could knock a Cape Buffalo off it's feet, so image what would happen to a zombie...
Striders Knives created the industry standard for cool. I have the pleasure of meeting Mic and company from Strider years ago through my boys and have been lucky to have a few pieces from their vault. I would choose their version of the battle-axe to accompany me on any outing.
However, if I only had one article to stuff into my Kifaru pack when the zombies attacked…it would be my Starlingear Samurai Sword. Handcrafted, razor sharp and well worth the near decade wait...it is my American Express card…I wouldn’t leave home without it.
