Building a little track

Recommended Posts

The last two weekends I have been taking equipment home from work and turning a friends' blackberry infested field into a little track. I should have some pics and maybe some video tomorrow. My camera isn't working, but my buddies girlfriend was taking pictures and video of us riding around a little bit, and some of me working on the track with a backhoe. I am hoping to get things finnished up tomorrow, it is still a bit rough and hard to ride on, but it is coming along ok.

Well, I had a ton of good pics and some video, but I can't find the files, the just dissapeared somehow. I did manage to find one pic and one kind of crappy vid of me on my 500R and a friend on a 400ex. There was a cool vid of me unloading the quad from the back of the trailer with the back hoe. There was just enough room to fit it on the loading ramps behind the tractor. I gently scooped the bucket under the frame and carefully picked it up and set it on the trailer. And a good one of me doing a little smoke show on the street in front of the house. If I ever find the rest of the pics and vid, I will surely post them.

There is one jump that could be decent, but the track is a bit short, it is hard to get enough speed up to really get good air one way, and not enough room to land properly going the other way. It is still a work in progress, and it may be a while before I get a chance to get any more equipment out there. I can take it home from work, but they don't like people to abuse the privilage too much. But it is a nice place to hang out, barbeque and put around a bit on the bikes.

Yeah, that backhoe works great, I brought that out there last weekend. The weekend before, I had a small excavator. It was ok, but it's slow and you can't move large amounts of dirt at once like you can with the backhoe.

      I have bought a 1996 suzuki king quad 300 and I have noticed that it smokes but I have put oil in it and plenty of gas had to fix shifter bc the nuts and bolts came out somewhere. I have had to replace the wire for the starter but now when I try to start it it wont idle at all and when it does run it smokes really bad like a whitish blue I guess, and it likes to stall a lot. So anybody can help me out please and thank you

      Just wanted to let all quad riders / racers know there is a oval dirt track race this sunday at Beever Creek Raceway. I spoke with the promoter and no special tires are required so if your curious or have been taking a break from racing, come on down and check it out.

      The website has the wrong date listed. The race will be on Sunday the 27th, not Saturday the 26th as listed on the beevercreekspeeday site.
      please see

      I had put a "Teaser" video on Youtube a day or two ago, but didn't put it on the forum. Here's the full version of the "Last Track Ride of The Season".
      Sure hate to see the tracking season come to an end ... but it's only about 234 days from now until it returns, so .. PRAY FOR SNOW !! :woot:
      We had a fantastic day on the snow & this video is longer than usual for me. There was just to much good stuff & I still left a lot of good stuff out of this. So, grab some popcorn & sit back & enjoy this 15 1/2 minute movie !! :lurk5c:
      Hope you enjoy it ....

      Put a little video together using timelapse ... what a pain ... of installing the tracks on my Can-Am. I didn't include taking the front A-Arms guards off, the rear CV Boot protectors off, of me greasing the bike, fixing a loose front brake rotor, and swapping out the Elka's for my Can-Am HPG shocks for the winter.
      Anyway, hope you enjoy the video .... Now … if it would JUST SNOW !!
