Desert Rider

The DR1, or “Desert Rider” was put together by Jack Pine in his free time after the formation of Section 6. It is a motorcycle made as a personal project of his, designed for better traversal of 188604's desert terrain.

About the DR1

The Dr1 is designed for speed, with a low output thruster built into the back of the bike, and is equipped with tires specifically designed to counteract the traction reducing effects of sand by itself, or on the road.

Key Features

The DR1 is equipped with a weak thrust, and specialized tires, but is otherwise just a means of transportation for one to two people with a small storage space built in under the seat.

History

Jack even though his usual hobby is guns, decided to try his hand at vehicle design as he does it everyday at work already at Section 6. With his recent familiarization of the tech in the U1 and his new access to information on hand at Section 6, and he thought a more family friendly hobby would be nice.

Appearance

The DR1 is very geometric in design with flat surfaces instead of sleek curves, has dual supports for both tires, and its systems and engine are visible in the lower section of the bike.
