SUMMARY: ***image1:right*** A Marine wearing a forest-green helmet and battle fatigues rides a camouflage-colored motorcycle down a steep hill on a rugged off-road test course at Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base near Oceanside.
He loops around a mud puddle, climbs powerfully up a hill and launches the imposing machine a few feet into the air.
The rider is one of a number of Marines at Pendleton that have been putting the motorcycle, developed by Hayes Diversified in Hesperia, through real-world tests.
Hayes Diversified recently received a $2.2 million Defense Department contract to manufacture what might be the only diesel-powered production motorcycles in the world.
