DON'T RIDE ALONE, UNSAFE, LET ME KNOW

Recommended Posts

So many things can go wrong, while out riding, even when with others, when getting away from the group! Try to always ride with at least one other person! If your over 50 and ride alone let me know, I'll try to go with you. I know the trails pretty good, up north, around St Helen, Mi. or I'll try to try areas of the state your more accustom to. I know its too cold now, but spring will be here before you can blink an eye lol
I can ride with the slowest dude in the pack, to WOT! Get in touch before season starts for more inf. Thanks, Steve

Great point , and kind of you to put the offer out to ride/w others.  

When im out alone I usually adjust my ride for safety, i dont get into anything over my head lol , some afternoons i just want to cruise the trail  ill go,slow enjoy the ride , but you are right about being alone , very easy to make a mistake ad regret it.  Be safe. Airborne

Love going out just for a cruise. Here is a question. Whith  all of my bikes I add on the front and back Go pro cam mounts.   I do it bc I like to see how the ride looks afterwards. The rear cam catches my son who is usually behind me. And the front just for shits and giggles. But it’s also good to record other things.  So when I’m out solo upstate I like to turn it on and go cruising and hope to catch a deer or any other crazy animal that may jump out. 

Bottom line of anything happens it’s on video!!!

Good idea on the cams seen a bobcat jump out the other day in front of me.

Just picked up a Sportsman Touring.  I've always rode with buddies sledding but I need to find out where and who to go wheeling with.  Definitely wise to ride with others than solo.

I'll go riding solo in the Rockies,  but always carry a pack with enough supplies to last a day or so and try to stay on the more frequently traveled trails

I was gonna write a big long speech about me riding alone .... but I deleted it. Lets just say, you ride how you want, & I'll ride how I want ... and most of the time, I ride alone ... and I like it !! Been doing the "Alone Thing" for over 50 yrs ... hunting, trapping, snowshoeing, camping, and ATVing in the spring, summer, fall & winter (on tracks) .... and I'm still here.  :twitsy:

But like some have mentioned, if one does ride alone, don't do stupid stuff, don't take unnecessary risks, have the means to spend a night or two in the wild, let someone know where you plan to spend the day, and if possible, have a way to communicate with the world or send an SOS. (i.e. Garmin InReach or a SPOT device.)  :unsure: .... BTW, I only got the way to communicate with the world in the past couple years., before that, I was TOTALLY alone ....... YEAH BUDDY !!! 

I'm not trying to justify or say a guy should ride alone, but if a guy has someone to ride with, SWEET !!! ..... If not, well then, you either sell your ATV or ... You Ride Alone !!  :yes:

 

WHAT !?!? :chatterboxn: ...... :biglaugh:

      this is for any who knows the seattle area. i heard of a place called "riders lake", or at least i think that was the name, for a place to ride with lots of mud. i was told it was around Sultan. If anyone knows of this place, could you give me info on where it is and if its legal to ride. i will be heading over that way for a meeting and i was wondering if it woul be worth loading up the quad and hauling it over the mountain,
      Thanks

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
      Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml

      Hi all,
      I have just got a 1995 Bayou 220 from my brother. It is in decent condition ant it has not been used much, yet it has been sitting idle for a long time (4+ years).
      The plan is to overhaul it and move it to a location where it will be used 4-6 times a year, so, beyond having the battery charged, the idea is to have it ready and in good condition. It will be stored in a steltered place while waiting to be used.
      My questions would be: 1. What things should I carry out as basic overhaul tasks / 2. What are the typical aches, things to watch out for in this model/year.
      I definitely plan on changing all the fluids, filters,  battery, cleaning the carb, etc. but any specific recommendation from your experience will be of great help.
       
      thanks in advance!
