Wow, so you are driving a golf cart now. Have you ridden a Raptor before? That will probably be the easiest transition. With all that torque, the front wheels don't like to stay on the ground, just like when you are riding a trike.:yes:

Negative.....Never been on a Quad other than my Wifes Wolverine....And that was just to go to the Bathroom and Cruise around Camp....:laugh:

I have never had the Desire to ride one....I can still go pretty much anywhere a Quad can where I ride....But....For some strange reason...I woke up and felt I needed something Different...

Anyway,,,,I guess this is what it looks like.....I havent seen it yet:huh:

We have a small sand dune area that is surrounded by Aspen Groves with trails shooting through them and the mountains on the outside of that are covered in trails! AWESOME riding area

I am glad to hear you like it, I'm sure you will able to get comfy with it easy enough. You don't have to feel too bad about it either, it's not like you got rid of the trikes. Just let them know that you still love them and don't let them see how much you like the electric start.

Cool MWKE! I looks very sweet. I would love to ride one. I can't wait until my brother-in-law gets his YFZ 450 rebuilt.

I ran my quad against a fully built YFZ450 at the dunes. It wasn't even funny. He took off so got damn fast you wouldn't f'ing believe it. In a quarter mile straight, he probably beat me by 20-25 yards. I was completely shocked at how fast he was running.(acceleration) I actually went up to him after the race and asked for my nuts back. LOL That's when he told me it was a pro level Baja motor and suspension. I could obviously see the upgraded suspension but I actually laughed half way through the race because how bad he was beating me. (my ride is no slow poke)

Bot that is funny. Sounds like something that would happen to me. My brother-in-law got a good deal on it and now just had to rebuilt it.

      We have uploaded a new web page for Doc Hilt Trails recently. Take a look and let us know what you think.
      We also added more trail to T3 and T13 making full loops, installed tables under the pavillion, and widened out camp areas on T14 thru T16, and installed a free wash station.

      I really like that you have put the most recent posts on display on the main page, however, it would be cool if we could see 15 or 20 of them though.
