SSRT Pig Roast Event

Recommended Posts

Another great weekend at Snow Shoe Rails to Trails for their annual pig roast. Thursday and Friday nights were quite cool at night. We run a buddy heater in the tent to keep warm. One of our members brought a drone and was able to get some cool video. Ill have to put it together and upload it to Youtube. They were sold out of food by 2:15pm. Trailhead was packed and they had to use two overflow areas for parking. I took a few snapshots from the drone video. One is a railroad viaduct that a few years ago we were able to cross it on our quads. It has been closed for a few years now.

Wow outstanding pics. Looks like you had some fun.  Freaking drones are awesome.

 So how did the machines run ?

If I were there food would have been gone by 1:30 😂 I love a pig roast, pulled pork especially!

What do you guys do for dinner bbq or head out to a local restaurant?

We had one breakdown on Friday, a Can-Am broke a tie rod end, we zip tied it up and rode the roads back to camp. We cooked out on the trail for lunch and stopped at a local place on the quads for dinner.  The pulled pork was excellent. For Saturday night, I ran down on the quad and picked up pizzas so we ate pizza around the campfire.

When I stopped to pick up the pizza's I noticed grease sling by the front shaft. It has quite a lot of play and the front U joint is shot. So the only thing we missed out on is we usually ride a few hours on Sunday before heading home.  The main rides were Friday & Saturday so it was not a big loss.

Dropped the quad off at the dealer yesterday, I can do most mechanical work on the quad, but not everything since I don't have a ton of tools. So for something like this that is kinda rare to happen, let the dealer take care of it. His labor price is very reasonable and he had replaced the U joint before, so he will give me a break on this repair since it is the second time.

My brother is the one who owns the drone. I took the raw video files and made this video from it.

 

 

Nearby is a 400 foot beaver dam, got some drone video of it as well since you can't see the whole thing from the ground

      So we are almost a month into winter and I've been so busy working on my house that up until today, I didn't realize that we just haven;t gotten any real snow yet to warrant putting the plow on my grizzly. So that got me thinking, what are the latest plows out there and what ATV plows are the best? I've got 2 snow plows for my grizzly, a quadboss pile driver atv plow set up and a snowsport ATV plow. They are both a bit dated now and I tend to stick with the snowsport due to ease of use and I just like it so much. So if you have a plow on your ATV, please let us know what it is and post a picture with your atv/plow would be awesome. Would also like to know what you like and dislike about it.
      This is back a while when I did a write up on these 2 plows.... in 2009 I got the snowsport and in 2012 I got the quadboss.

      Hows evryone feel about blasting around in snow ? 
      I love it usually after all plowing is done ill drop the plow and just go lut and have fun. From drifting all over lol to packing snow trails in woods its fun , never been into snow mobiles ,  where we live its very rural and our roads seem like an afterthought when it comes to plowing lol , usually last to get cleared , so we will hit the back roads to powerlknes and such , we have several people around here with side by siedes ,and the usually hit the powerlines , pack the trails and then we hit them good fun ....Anybody else ?

      Kawasaki Prairie 700 is the machine. It’s starts and runs but has a miss. After running it til it’s warm, it’s start smoking like your spraying for mosquitoes. Has oil in the breather also. Checked compressions and getting low 40psi both holes. I know this has a decompression lobe. Any other ideas? Leak down check? I’m guessing it pretty much has to be rings. With it blowing oil back into the breather. Normal typical sign I suppose?
