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!!!

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 some exciting news for those who ride the Hatfield McCoy Trails!! The trail authority is working on a connector to connect Rockhouse to the Buffalo Mtn Trail. I copied and pasted this from a blog on the Hatfield McCoy site!!

      Devil Anse Connector...starts soon...
      Devil Anse Connector to start work today
      Hey folks,
      Big Jim here comin' to you from the heart of HMT Country.
      And boy do I have some big news for you. In about two hours work should start going full tilt on the new Devil Anse Connector that will hook up our famous and super-popular Rockhouse Trails to the Matewan area.
      As you know, Rockhouse is very popular -especially among our extreme riders- and it is housed in two counties - Mingo County- via Gilbert and Logan County via the town of Man. Some time back it was announced that the next phase of work for HMT would be to connect trails together starting with connecting the trails in Mingo County together then connecting the trails in Logan County together. Well, construction on that phase starts in earnest today.
      Awhile back I ran into somebody I know who is in the know who told me "something big is coming real soon," but would not confirm anything. So Monday evening I ran up to the town of Man where Deputy Director Johnny Fekete lives and met with him after the town council meeting where Johnny shared the good news with the town council.
      Fekete said work will soon be completed over the next two months on the Rockhouse trail connector that should make a lot of different people happy for several different reasons- not the least of which would be lessening ATV traffic in one residential area.
      I hung around a little to talk with Johnny about this.
      “We will start pushing on Wednesday on the Devil Anse Connector, “ Fekete said. “This is a long time proposal and when it is completed it will connect the Rochouse Trail to the town of Matewan.”
      Fekete said he hoped the project would be completed in a few months, barring any unforeseen delays.
      “This is our big project for the year.” Fekete said the idea for the Devil Anse Connector goes back a decade or so to the early days of the Hatfield-McCoy Trails. Now that most of the trails are completed the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority is looking at connecting them together.
      Currently the trails offer over 600 miles of managed trails in and around several towns in Southern West Virginia. The trails have proven to be a great success in regards to bringing in tourism dollars to the area and the HMRRA wants to continue that success in making the coalfields a popular tourism destination.
      “This will be a very big thing for our riders, “ Fekete said of the Devil Anse Connector.
      Great news for the trail riders and area businesses!

      Come on up, here to Michigan, with so many great trails, covering half our state! So many trails it would take a life time, to explore them all! Get with me and lets plan a trip, where I can save you years of trying to find the best of the trails, towns, restaurants, lakes, hill climbs, campgrounds, so much clean sand, you'll think your riding in Arizona lol!
      Summer will be here, before you know it! 
      If your over 50, so as to have more in common, join me, and lets ride!
      Thanks, Steve
