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

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!

    • Hi folks! Time to try 4 wheels when its time to put away the toy with 2!

      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!

    • National Recreational ORV Park (KENTUCKY)

      The Land Between the Lakes Kentucky, Turkey Bay ORV Park... Sits on 170,000 Acres of National Recreational Land. Turkey Bay has over 100 miles of Trails and Hills decently maintained. I Used to go every Memorial Day Weekend. Thinking of going back soon!!! A few things you absolutely must know ahead of time. #1 The nearest Gas station, last time I was there was around 45 min away... bring extra cans!!!! #2 Rocks on the trails range in sizes from Quarters to Bowling balls to Volkswagens.  Tire Plugs, Spare parts, AND TOOLS recommended. Again nearest town is 45 min away. #3 THIS IS HUGE!!!!!!!!   The park is located in a DRY county... nearest adult beverage over an hour and a half away one way. They do sell Ice at Ranger station. #4 Easy as hell to get Lost. Ride in pairs. No telling how well GPS will work in the deep woods. #5 Plan on staying a weekend. one day is no where near long enough. Link to official page with all the INFO you will need other than the above fore mentioned..... https://www.landbetweenthelakes.us/   Enjoy!!! Deuces

    • STOLEN ATV: Stole 3 four wheelers and one was a young child’s whom is heart broken

      Well we are in the process of moving and we come to the house and the shed is broken into and all three four wheelers are gone and then they broke into our house and stole a bunch of stuff but the main problem is the four-wheelers especially the child’s he was heartbroken it was his first four wheeler and it was from his grandpa for his birthday. And currently since we just moved we don’t have enough money to go and get the poor little guy a new one and neither does his grandpa. The post Stole 3 four wheelers and one was a young child’s whom is heart broken appeared first on Stolen 911. View the full article

      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.

      I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.

      Can somebody please tell me if 250x or 250ex nerf bars will fit on 96 300ex, and will 93-98 300ex nerf bars work on my 96 300ex? Thanks
