Well, new to the forum but not new to ATVs. I've been on ATVs for the better part of my 25 years. It started out with a Honda Big Reg ATC shortly after I could walk. I later graduated to a Yamaha Warrior. That was my first exposure to sport quads. The Warrior was swapped out for a Honda Rincon when it became clear that welding a hitch to the warrior and calling it a utility quad wouldn't cut it.

The Rincon was a great ATV that I still have around as the utility and toy for the mud. One of the best trips it took was the Silverton Colorado area. Awesome country:

I then had an itch to get back into the sport world. I bought a Bombardier DS650X back in 2005. The quad has been great to me. I managed to bend all 4 wheels the first day I had it at the MX track. Turns out I have a photo from that day... I probably didn't bend them on this jump but one of them:

All patched up with new wheels:

The most memorable trip the DS has taken was a week long ride on the Hatfield McCoy trail system. Best was this shot one of the guys managed to get. That's me at the bottom after rolling a few yards down the mountain... a true testament to my riding skill :skeptic:

I've also been involved in photography for several years. That's about it... glad to be here.

Welcome aboard schef! I'm glad I posted the link to those pics over at ATVOutdoors! These are some great pictures you have here, I can tell you are a photographer.

I noticed you are an Admin over there. Looks like you are a seosoned poster and any board would benefit from your input!

I'm not as active in the ATV world as I have been. I started ATV Outdoors back in 2002 but I've spent the last year and a half away from the ATV world after passing ownership on to another individual. I still have admin status on the site but that's more of a symbolic role more than anything else.

But it's time to start dusting off the quads that haven't been ridden in a few months and put them to use.

      Looking for advice on what to try next I bought this quad and it’s has spark and fuel but won’t stay running only fires when I hold the starter button in even when spraying gas into the carb it still dies right away oil was milky white so I was thinking it maybe went under water 150 psi compression so I might be wrong but not a head gasket I am stuck Cause it should stay running with the straight gas through the carb so what should I try
