Why?

I been watching SG-1 lately and have this question, why no vehicles thru the gate. Yes I know the remote vehicles, the Russian sub but it seems that everything on the other side of the gate is in walking distance. How about a motorcycle or ATV?

Re: Why?

It's this little thing called stealth - vehicles are noisy. It's nothing for special ops teams to hike a number of miles to reach the mission objective in RL. Also, if you noticed the gate ramps aren't all that wide. You might get a motorcycle to fit but many ATV's are too wide & a jeep is definitely too wide. The other thing you'll notice if you watch carefully is the gates on other planets are generally placed fairly close to an area with a concentrated population or that had been a heavily populated location at some time in the past. It's quite likely that the population centers grew up close to the gates or were deliberately built within walking distance of population centers. Tactically, the gate ramps are choke points for invading forces. Each person through the gate has to clear the destination ramp quickly so they don't end up being a "mattress" for the person behind them. You'll notice that even though SG-1 walked up the ramp at Cheyenne Mountain together - they went through the Gate individually.

Re: Why?

I guess they use the Drones for wider exploration, but some off road motorcycles could have been handy sometimes when stealth wasn't required.

Re: Why?

The big Freds they use as mules are almost the size of a Jeep. The Goauld have used gates to transport death gliders.

Re: Why?

I would think if the wings of a Death Glider could fold, they could fit in a stargate. If you mean the Vietnam era mechanical mules I think they are a little smaller but alot lighter than a jeep.

Re: Why?

I think in the opening they have one fly near the stargate, but I'm not sure what episode that was maybe season 1.

Re: Why?

Now that all the logical reasons have been covered ( in a real world aspect ) the easiest answer( in a show aspect ) is money, it just wasn't in the budget. Several members of SG-Prometheus have forwarded ideas of building a mule similar to the one used on the show to carry all our gear on larger airsoft fields, and the answer has been the same, "who's going to pay for that?". So until one of hits the lottery, we'll just keep carrying everything we need on our person.
