I absolutely LOVE this track!! Well tracks. There is more than one there. I was wondering if anyone else here has riden there? I dont have any pics of myself riding there yet but Im gonna make my husband take some the next time we go. There are 4 tracks there including a pee wee track for the kiddies. One guy from this site came up to me at the track last weekend I forgot his name (SORRY) but hey atleast im not the only one here that knows about it. Here is a link to check what they have. :hurrayc: :elefant:

A lot of my friends from the 702sportbikes forum that ride dirt bikes ride there on a weekly basis. They say it is fantastic. They said to start on the vet track and then go to the national track and none of them will ride the arena cross track (jumps to big). I have not been there yet. I am not much of a track rider (love the trails) and I don't jump very well. I will be going there soon but I will probably take a motorcycle not my quad (quad set up for desert racing).

I love tracks! Gotta admit i like the trails too every now and then though. Im still on the vet track. I rolled the national track towards the end of the day when there werent many people there but im not ready for that one yet. :unsure: Ive only seen a few bikes on the arena cross track. Havent seen any quads ride that one. Dont think its really quad material. If your ever there and see me out there stop me and say hi.

Ok, I'm going to do it! I will be riding the Boulder City Track This Friday. Some friends from the 702 dirtbike forum will be there so I will hang out with them. I will be taking my KTM 450 XC and one of my Honda TRX 450's #402. I will be trying to learn to jump without killing myself. Wish me luck.

Just a quick report on the day at the track.

The track was very wet first thing in the morning (over watered). About 2 hours into riding the track got tacky in most spots and there were lines starting to form. I could not help but notice that I sucked! It seemed that no matter how many times that I went around the track my balls got smaller instead of getting bigger. I looked at the double so many times and I know I can do it I just could not get up the nerve so I will take home the wimp award for the day. The highlight of my day was when a kid on a KTM 65 passed me up and then proceeded to roost me. That kid is going to do well racing! One of the guys (can’t remember name) over shot the table top and flat landed and hurt his wrist. 100_0420-1.jpg

I sat there trying to calculate the height that you would be if you jumped and flat landed and as near as I can figure it that would be about 30’ high. Drop off a ledge 30’ high and It should hurt! I rode mostly the vet track. The group did go onto the national track but we just looked like tourist! 100_0419-1.jpg

I did have fun banging bars with Charlie on the national track for a few laps today. I have never taken one of my quads on a track before and today reminded me as to why. 100_0413.jpg

I never did get on the arenacross track but I was so out of place everywhere else so I thought there was enough humiliation already without going there. It was a pretty fun experience. Charlie was jumping the double at the end and Trevor made it look easy. Robbie tore it up. Paul was having the same problem I was with the double. th_100_0421.jpg

Ok, next time I will take off the training wheels when I ride. Thanks for the ride guys!

What day did you go? You gotta go on Saturday! Which one is you in the pictures so if I see you out there I know who you are? It seems like just lately they have been over watering the track. It sucks. I dont know why.

I went on a Friday because that's when the 702 guys have elected to be their day on the track. They tell me that it has 1/4 the people on the track on Fridays as opposed to Saturday or Sunday. I will be going back because I could tell the difference in how I was hitting obstacles after the track work. I rode in a MRAN race the Sunday after riding the track (mud fest) 100_0441.jpg

and I could really see the difference. I have never really jumped the quad before and found it to be less scary then the motorcycle. I need more practice!

I am the ugly old man in the white and red in the first picture and I drive a black SS with a Best in the Desert sticker in the rear window.

Love the mud pic! I rode on Sunday there once and will never again. Its too beat up by the time Sunday rolls around. I dont think they do any maintenance on the track during the weekend other than watering.

Just an update on my rant. Because I complained that its not right and the safetly reason they came up with didnt make any sense...they are now in the process of making a track JUST for the quads! Sticking up for what you believe in it does WORK!!

Good job!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wondered what kind of a track they were putting in. I went by on Saturday and it looked like a TT track or something like that. I will have to gear down one of my quads and try it.

      I saw this article on Motosport and thought it was pretty good. Anyone add anything?
        You might think hopping on-board an ATV and going for a spin is just as easy as taking your regular 4-wheel car for a ride around the block. After all, both have four wheels. How hard could it be?
      In many respects, you're right. Some adventure riders choose quads over their two-wheeled counterparts of the dirt because there's less chance of crashing and it's easier to learn. ATVs also offer more manageability for younger riders to get acquainted with outdoor riding than a dirt bike.
      However, beginner riders on ATVs tend to make the same mistakes that result in crashes, roll overs and injury that could be avoided with some instruction and know-how. If you're looking at a fun family outing by renting ATVs or want to get into the sport take advantage of the following points and avoid the same mistakes so many other first time ATV riders make that end their day early or before they barely get started.
      1. Nerf Bars
      Get Nerf bars. These are not soft cushy add-ons that are cousins to the football you use during backyard football games. In many respects, Nerf bars are gigantic foot pegs. Don't bother with traditional foot pegs because you'll constantly slip off and because of the "I feel safe factor" that comes with riding a quad you'll also have a tendency to let your feet drag when riding. That's a recipe for getting one or both of your feet caught in the back tire resulting in serious injury. Nerf bars allow you to stabilize your feet and get maximum control over the ATV

      Rest your feet easy on Nerf bars
      2. Rolling Over
      Believe it or not, it's fairly easy to roll an ATV over. And you don't want to be on the bottom of that sandwich.
      The most common way of ending underneath a quad is looping out. That's done by hitting the gas and having little to no experience with the power of an ATV. The front spikes up like an out of control stallion, throws you onto your back like a bucking bronco and then pins you like a UFC Champ.
      The second way is when you're having a bit too much fun sliding around in mud or other slick conditions, the tires finally do what they're designed to do and grip the ground but the rest of the bike, with you on it, keeps going.
      Finally, those who think they've found their bearings take aim for a steep slope and try to conquer it only to end up upside down or in their attempt to arch alongside said steep hill, tumble over the side.
      3. False Sense of Security
      This goes somewhat hand-in-hand with the roll over capability that many riders fail to appreciate therefore they also neglect wearing proper protective equipment. Don't think wearing jeans, t-shirt and sneakers is adequate protection when riding a 4-wheeled machine powered by a gas engine that doesn't have seatbelts. You need a helmet, goggles, gloves and riding boots at a minimum. Once you start ripping it on the track or trails add a chest protector, neck brace, knee brace, etc.
      4. Throttle Control
      Everybody wants to skip the kiddie stage and get right into hair-raising speed when it comes to riding ATVs. OK, most everybody. But for those who do so many put on the cloak of invincibility and think a quad is merely a mini car that finally enables them to release all sorts of pent up childhood inhibitions.
      So they jab their thumb into the throttle with the expectation of a controlled roller coaster ride. Instead, they loop out and end up underneath the quad or manage to stay seated only to careen off course and introduce their 4x4 to a large tree. ATVs normally have a thumb throttle and most have an automatic clutch so the clutch is one less thing to worry about. So go slow and figure out how much "thumb" is too much and get used to the speed and power an ATV delivers before really going for a ride. Oh, one more thing, learn to take your thumb off the throttle!

      It's not to hard to loop out on an ATV
      5. Loading the ATV
      Never, ever ride an ATV up a ramp into the back of a pick-up. If you want to know why just go to YouTube. If you want to know how to load an ATV check out this fine piece of quality information on How to Load a Motorcycle, Dirt Bike or ATV into a Truck.
      The bottom line to riding an ATV the first time is treat it like you would anything that comes with a modicum of danger. Careless behavior endangers you and others but with common sense and a willingness to learn you'll enjoy of lifetime of riding quads.

      This is out near Vegas Valley and Hollywood. People have been riding there for awhile now but they have been building stuff out there and I didnt really know what it was till recently. This is some information that I have found about it so far. The link included is a map of the area and what they plan to do.
      Sunrise Trailhead
      The trailhead is a vital staging area for motorized and non-motorized trail users near the County Wetlands Park and the Sunrise Management Area. This trailhead also provides linkages to the River Mountains Loop Trail, Rainbow Gardens Trails, and the Flamingo Arroyo Trail. Construction is set to begin in late February and the trailhead should be ready for trail users by late Fall 2006
