There will also always be those who choose to overkill, and in 2020 many of these are outriders. this is a huge custom-made recumbent battle-cycle. It is not intended to go against heavy weapons and vehicles as much as to intimidate and defeat sot vehicles and civilians. The peculiar weapon mounting is unique, or close to it; most cycles that mount weapons use outboard pods near the rear axle point. If not for the heavy cargo boxes mounted at the rear, this vehicle would be dangerous to ride. There will certainly not be a large number of these beasts in any tribe.
Most nomads riding this type of bike have spent years bartering, scrounging, and tinkering, so their bikes sometimes end up costing twice the listed price. Attempting to steal a bike like this (while remaining in a tribe, or even within the nomad culture) usually results in death very quickly. No one in a tribe tolerates stealing, and these cycles are as distinctive as a retinal pattern.
