Recommended Posts

Folks, off-roading is growing and growing here in southeast Kentucky, deep in the heart of the Appalachian Coalfields

With Harlan County and the Ridge Runners ATV Club leading the way with the world famous 7,000 acre Black Mountain Park and an additional 54,000+ acres of off-park riding of all kinds, you can get a feeling of small town Appalachia in the City of Evarts...only city in KY where you can ride your toy legally through town as long as you wear your helmet and obey laws. Price: FREE

For info go to the Ridge Runner website: harlancountyridgerunners - HARLAN CO.RIDGE RUNNERS * *

Here in Bell County we are following suite with the Holler Crawlers Off-Road Club. We are in progress of developing the 9,000 acre Wilderness Trail Off-Road Park with some of the most fantastic views you will ever see of both the Cumberland and Pine Mountain ranges...plus the soon to be world famous MUD BOWL. Even though the park is still under development, it is still open to ride, but you will need a guide until we get maps/trailheads completed. Plus we in Bell County are working on an additional 50,000+ acres of off-park riding. Price: FREE

For info check out the Holler Crawlers website: hollercrawlers -

Also we have Leslie County, our neighbors to the north. Their resident club, the Daniel Boone Trailblazers, offer free guided tours through the Daniel Boone Natl Forest and Redbird Crest Trails. They are the first ATV club to partner witht he US Forest Service. It is not uncommon to see a herd of elk on their rides. Price: FREE

For more info check out the Trailblazers website: DBTrailblazers -

The best part: all 3 counties are working right now to get all of their trails interconnected, making for one HUGE riding area. Keep checking in for more info!

      I was able to get out for some tracking in-between storms ... we have lots of deep powder and on this ride, it was pretty windy ... of course, it usually is on these ridge tops. It was nice & cool too. The day started of at -7F (-21c) and stayed pretty nippy all day long.
      Hope you enjoy the video !!!

      Hi folks. 
      Winter is creeping up on eastern Canada and I felt the urge for a toy to hold me through the winter while my trusty Honda CBF600SA snoozes.
      Can't do it easy tho.... has to be a project of course! So on the weekend found me a mostly there 91 Kawasaki Bayou 300 KLF300. And tonight a 94 300 parts quad followed me home!
      Hopefully I'll have the runner under its own power this weekend. Seller had a terrible time to get it to start, and when it did would only run for a few seconds. .. but enough to hear it and know there was some life in her! Planning a valve adjust, new fuel line (current is super hard and probably brittle as all heck!), and maybe a carb once over. 
      Maybe I'll even try and make this thing un-ugly again later on. 
      Anyhow, glad to be here!

      Gibbs Technologies Ltd, the world’s only High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology specialist, today unveiled a prototype of the first commercially viable high-speed amphibian Quadbike/All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) - Quadski.
      Quadski is the third demonstration of Gibbs’ HSA technology following the successes of the Aquada and the Humdinga. It is capable of travelling up to 50 mph (72 kph) on land and water and makes the transition at the flick of a switch.
      Commenting on the launch of the Quadski prototype, Alan Gibbs, the founder of UK based Gibbs Technologies Ltd. said, “Quadski is both exciting and practical with a multitude of uses”.
      “I know consumers will love the fun of driving a Quadski on land one minute and then head straight into the sea or river the next. But there is a very serious side to Quadski as well: emergency services and aid workers will be able to reach areas and people no two or four wheel drive vehicle could reach.”

      If you are looking for a used ATV for sale, where do you look? I know ebay and craigslist have used ATVs for sales and then sometimes you find local trade publications where they list used ATVs. I was looking online and decided to list out some websites that sell used ATVs. If you know of any additional websites or sources to look for or buy used ATVs, please post as a comment in this topic.
      eBay Motors  - usually has a good selection of four wheelers, ATVs, and Side by Sides and offer seller protections
      Craigslist - usually has more local ATVs, but be careful as there are no seller protections
      ATV Trader - has over 130k ATVs listed by private sellers
      ATVSoup.com - new and used ATVs for sale
      WantAdDigest - Shows local listings of ATVs for sale
      ATV.com - List new and used ATVs for sale
      When buying a used ATV, make sure you do your research and find out the book value of the ATV, look over the condition of the ATV, and as for verification of ownership. Be careful who you buy from and get the ATV checked out by a professional dealer or repair shop if you are baying a high price. 
      Watch our for VIN numbers that are scraped off, this is usually a sign that the ATV was stolen.
