As any rancher knows, nothing beats hands-on knowledge of your range. Sure, aircars are faster, but the only way to know land is to ride it. The Canrith model mechanical steed takes the drudgery out of range-riding, leaving the pure pleasure and real experience you need.

A legged version of the all-terrain cycle, the Dust Bunny can race across the roughest terrain at over 100 km/h. Most commonly used by urban cowboys, the Dust Bunny is nicknamed “Seadoo of the plains” by those loving the quiet outdoors. (Although the Fusion Plus power plant is
silent, the transmission although tales of Dust
makes a loud buzzing-whining sound that repels most wildlife - Bunnies and riders suffering the ardent advances of large rutting
herbivores are common pub tales.)
