       Easier:            Ride gnarley trails

                                Climb steep rocky hills
                                Steer in sand, mud, snow, loose rocks

       Greener:        Surmount obstacles by traction - not by digging trenches

       Better:            Anti-dive, coordinated braking
                                              Both wheels brake together
                                              Front brake lever control
                                              Balanced breaking for descending steep hills
                                              Reduced front wheel lockup in emergencies

       Smoother:      Proven Hossack dual A-arm suspension
                                              No torque or bump steer
                                              Design provides stock suspension travel
                                              Design provides stock steering lock value
                                             

The Lawson motorcycle all wheel drive design provides the same advantages that an all wheel drive ATV has over a rear wheel drive ATV. Its all wheel drive and suspension system provides as much torque to the front wheel as necessary, rotates the front wheel at basically the same speed as the rear wheel thus excessive rear wheel slip is not required and obstacles are surmounted by traction not digging trenches, and provides the quality suspension and ride available from a conventional rear wheel drive motorcycle.

The Lawson AWD motorcycle is a much simpler design than what is now available for off-road and has equivalent or better suspension characteristics than existing telescoping front suspensions. It is easier for an average rider to control on steep bumpy slopes, to surmount rocks and logs, and to maneuver in sand, mud, and snow. As both wheels are pulling to surmount obstacles, the Lawson design motorcycle does not require speed and aggressive spinning of the rear wheel. As a result it is much greener, doing less damage to the terrain, and it can be much more easily walked through narrow backcountry trails such as those used by firefighters or rescue personnel. The advantage of an all wheel drive motorcycle is similar to why a four wheel drive vehicle is much better in difficult conditions than a two wheel drive vehicle.
