A TWO-WHEELED SOLUTION TO A CROSS-COUNTRY SHTF PROBLEM

Very Informative Link:
With the uncertainty of our economy and questionable things our government says and does to other countries, either the collapse will materialize, civil riots or with technology as it’s shared globally an EMP attack or a nuke set off in New York City by a rogue nation are possible. We’re getting uncomfortably close.
You have been prepping for just such a time when you must abandon your home or residence and get out of town for your own safety, to a safe secure area better known as your ‘retreat’. Your retreat is a place/destination known in advance that has about a year of food/supplies and an RV or cabin already there for your shelter.
One huge issue when trying to Bug Out is everyone else is also trying to get out.
My living in hurricane country has shown me first hand what it’s like when the government decides to issue an evac order to move just 100,000 people. The 3-4 evacuation routes are immediately clogged to a stand still. Vehicle break downs and most common, running out of gas. Myself, I avoid that mess by watching to hurricane forecasts (NOAA) and leaving a couple days earlier than the order. If the hurricane turns away good, I just had a mini vacation.
A Motorcycle as a Bug Out Vehicle?
When the roads are clogged a motorcycle can ride down the medians, the roads shoulder, cutting across farm fields, ride on sidewalks, ditches, etc. The Link above will take you to a detailed outline of how to make the motorcycle do the job.
