Merle Norman Cosmetics manufactured the first 2x2 Trail-Breaker motorcycles in 1963. The company known for Lipstick and Eyeliner set up Nethercutt Industrial Corporation to manufacture the only 2-wheel drive bike produced in the history of America. Got your breath yet? This documentary is about this unique two-wheel mechanized mountain goat and the people that own them. It is one of the best-kept secrets of American ingenuity of the last 60 years. Just pull into a service station with one on a trailer and you will instantly have a curious crowd. The Rokon is the only true ATV on the planet that has the ability to do anything that the rider is capable of. It is a simple woods bike that you can really do anything you want with except go fast. Who invented this machine that would climb 60 degree grades, weighed less than 200 pounds, would carry heavy payloads, climb over 24 inch logs and float like a raft across streams? Why did Jim Fowler of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom carry the Trailbreaker half way around the world to film Condors? The Rokon Cult consists of people from all walks of life that have seemingly familiar traits. They are smarter than the average hammer, self-preserving, independent, full of life and proud to be Americans. They love the challenge of taking a machine where the roads don’t go and don’t lose sight of how life was meant to be! They have been bitten by the Rokon Bug and are hopelessly incurable. Simply put, this will be the world’s first and most comprehensive documentary telling the story of the American made Rokon motorcycle, including its founders, high profile folks that have embraced them like Jim Fowler and the enthusiastic group of Rokon owners world-wide. Rokon is the second oldest motorcycle manufacturer next to Harley Davidson in America. Will you be the network that lets the world know about “The Other American Motorcycle Legend?”
