Michigan looking for trail riding friend over 50

Recommended Posts

I'll keep looking/asking until I find someone that's in same boat, or atv as I'm in lol Well maybe not the exact same atv, any atv would be ok lol
Riding skills from slow poke to flat WOT is fine with me, as long as were out there in Gods country!! Get in touch before the season starts to get acquainted before hand! Thanks, Steve

Sounds great!! Sorry I didn't get your reply in my mail for some reason, so its lucky I happened back here to see your message to possibly ride one day. I have been riding up around St Helen to Mio region since 86, with kids and know the area real well, and have many great places to show if you've never been there yet! My kids have stopped riding last year after blowing rod and can't afford repairs.

I'm very familiar w/the R's, had all three model years of 250 and 2 of 450's, which I presently have and really love it! Fast/quick/lite, kick start 2004 that starts easily and reliable! 

Been to Silver lk many times, not many trails, and usually just stay a day, but up north is better where there's so many trails, you'll never cross the same one twice, and can ride for days!

We have either camped at campground there or stayed at Trails Inn, right on trail head downtown St Helen on colder days, and with friends with their campers, with rustic and electric sites at campground, and it too is right there in town with atv dealer for parts and hardware stores. Great restaurants too!

I'm semi retired here in Taylor, Mi. and have plenty of time for trails/camping once weather breaks, how about something about yourself?

If you might know of anyone that would possibly be interested in riding with another trail friend/buddy, or someone riding alone that might prefer to ride with another trail rider, give them my offer to join up, not safe riding alone, I'll be lining up trips soon, to be ready when weather warms up. 
Thanks, Steve

There must be someone in Michigan surely.

How many quads do you have mate?.

My view is one bike is never enough, I have 4 including the road bike. :)                                                                                                                                                               Or get a mate to buy a quad or trike, then at least you already know them.

GETTING READY FOR THIS YEAR ATV RIDING SEASON!
Just installed new tires on my quad hauling van, to have one other thing out of the way, before riding season begins! Also getting together camping/ATV reminder lists, to stick in/on things like ATV storage box, van tool box, ATV box, Map folder, list taped on kitchen cupboard door, riding gear box, camping bag, clothes bag, food/drinks list etc.  Don't need to get all the way out, to ride somewhere, and possibly forget something as simple/little as the key, its happened to us before lol Don't leave home without it, the lists that is lol Also trying to rig up a longer antenna on radio talkies, hoping to get a mile more range, while out on trail.
We have to be ready when season finally arrives, this far north, with only having around 4 decent trail riding months in Michigan here! First with having to wait for snow to melt, then for flooding to dry up, hopefully sometime in mid May, then stops suddenly in mid July with humid 90 days, until end of Aug. then ending again in late oct. 
Don't ride alone get with me and lets ride!

Not getting any response on this forum, since having my posts so lost, way down in, away from new posts! Other forum allow posting in many areas and keeping posts on top, easier to find, receiving new reply's often!

Might be wasting my time again, but here goes!

TRYING TO FIND A FRIEND/BUDDY TO TRAIL RIDE WITH THIS SEASON. GET WITH ME AND LETS RIDE 2019

      I have an Outlaw 110 that will struggle to turn the engine over. Jump starting doesn't help other than the battery will drain LONG before the bike eventually starts, so is required. If you keep messing with it long enough it will eventually magically begin to crank fine and sometimes finally start. Once we finally get the bike to start and warm it up thoroughly, it will turn over and start just fine the rest of the day like nothing ever happened... next day it won't turn over again.  Internet research has found lots of people saying they replaced starters, starter clutch, wiring, etc. but with only about 50/50 success rate for their particular problems... and I never found anybody describing a problem like mine, so I'm looking for advice/experience. Would rather not just start blindly throwing parts at it. Does anybody have any thoughts/ideas?

      Thought i would share a fix that I came across. I was working on a 99 scambler 500, The customer complaint was that even with the fuel shut off the tank would slowly drain out onto the ground. First I found the fuel shut off was bad/ leaking/ dripping so I installed a new one thinking that would fix it. Then I ran it and and seen that the overflow was flowing fuel out from the bowl. So I cleaned the needle and seat and changed the float height to lower the fuel level in the bowl. Well... It still overflowed and flooded. So I bench tested the needle and seat with a pop off tester. I found that these newer style needle and seats just utilize an o-ring to install the brass seat into the carb.
      The o-ring for the seat had hardened up allowing fuel into the float bowl from under the seat. New o-ring and problems solved.

      I made my intro about a QuadRunner I was working on and found a multitude of problems. Most I fixed, but I'm thinking that I'll be making more trips to see the 90' LT-250/4WD. Age and needing regular attention is the reason. The owner, NOT being mechanically inclined, adds into the equation.
      So, I deliver it and was offered, as payment, a 95' LT-250/4WD, with paper. It didn't run and had been sitting outside for last 12+ months. It was (basically) all there. This happened Saturday and this "Barn Find" came home to live out it's final years (I suspect).

       
      Today I finally found time to look at her. Not a pretty sight. Rough life, many hrs....... MANY! Only 2399mi, but the speedo is disco'd. I just want to know if this will be worth pursuing. First things first, a really good cleaning. I hate working on dirty vehicles.

      The battery actually took and held a charge! The carb was pulled, cleaned and the tank drained. Found a broken orange wire, dangling loose, near the carb. It was hot when the key was on and ended up connecting to a 10A fuse block. Well, I wonder why it didn't run???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm! 
      Carb back on, fresh non-eth fuel, had to remove the air filter for this test (needs replacement), sprayed a little ether..... hit the starter, fired and died. Third time's a charm, she runs. I'll be going thru things as I can and questions will follow, in this thread.

      Went on a great ride on Sunday from the M-33 trail head to the Lupton trailhead in the Huron National Forest.

      More videos from the ride to be uploaded to the channel soon.
