The sand cycle
EDIT: This moc is old and requires an update.
About this creation
The sand cycle is used primarily throughout the badlands and Po-Koro. It's built specifically for riding in the desert, though it can usually handle other terrain if the need arises. Its wheels are specially built to minimize sound and create an alternating air pattern that erases its tracks as it moves.
The Vorox clans occasionally use them for raids and sieges for their speed and stealth, but Po-Matoran and even Toa have also been known to use sand cycles for transportation. It's one of the safest ways to traverse the badlands, though they are expensive and often in poor repair.
Sand cycles have been in circulation on the market for several hundred years, and they're slowly disappearing as more and more break down or are left to rust and bleach in the desert as Rahi murder their riders. No one's particularly sure who originally built them, but the design is simple enough to learn and some Po-Matoran books have even been written on the subject, so that a good craftsman can build his own version of the vehicle rather than paying copious prices for an existing one.

The abdomen opens to release excess heat.

Yes, I agree with The Texan Bionicle Biulder. This thing has class!! First thing that got my attention: the unique and complex design of the vehicle (yes I said "complex" mostly looking at the chair the rider sits on) Then theres the really different and creative wheel designs! You managed to combine treadmills and jet wheels into one fancy wheel, in which you have 2 of. Overall, You have biult the vehicle that I have many things to say about it, but few big points are mentioned. Your Score: 8.75/10
