Do you wear your ring?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

I am new to the forum and to riding. I just bought a 2002 Honda 400ex and I love it. I went out riding for the first time last Sunday and I can't wait to get back out there on Saturday. My question is do you wear your wedding/engagement rings while riding? I just recently got engaged and I never take my ring off. It fits fine under my glove and I am wondering if anyone else has lost theirs or had a bad experience wearing it while riding.

I know I'm not a she, but I thought I would chime in on this one. The only time I take my wedding ring off is when I am riding. It tears the callus off of my palm if I leave it on. My ring is a big bulky tungsten ring, I probably wouldn't have that problem with a smaller ring though.

I take mine off when I ride because my hands swell and the ring gets tight on the finger. I also take it off when Im doing work around the house so it doesn't get damaged. When my company was moving I was moving a filing cabinet and it got away from me and my hand got caught between the cabinet and the wall. No big deal until I tried to take my ring off. It got slightly crushed and I had trouble getting it off.

Welcome to the forum and welcome to ATVing SDgirl. Glad you are enjoying yourself!!!

I never wear mine when I race for fear of breaking a finger and having to get it cut off :aargh:

I wore it trail riding a few times but it makes a callus on my hand if we go out all day. I also have to watch taking my glove off because the setting gets caught. I have to watch when it's cold too cause it gets a little loose. :no:

I ran across this thread and figured there must be SOME solution out there... well I found one and wanted to share it with y'all... I found it on a running forum but I bought a purple one to match my helmet. www.ringwrapper.com

I'll let you know how it works out when I get it!

So I got the Ring Wrapper (purple of course) and finally got to go ride in the mud. I had NO questions about it falling off - my ring was very secure on my finger - and it mostly shielded the mud too. I don't like to ride with gloves in the summer time because they are hot, so I'm really glad I found this product!

I take mine off now because its more comfortable without it. Ive been giving it to my husband to hang on to if I forget to take it off before the ride, but soon I will have a front box to carry my own supplies in.

I dont wear a wedding ring at all. It was a requirement not to wear one or any jewelry when I was working but then it became habit not to wear it. I do wear it when we go out. My wife doesnt wear one either.

Maybe that is why I only got blisters on my left hand? I thought maybe it stopped because i have power steering now but I actually stopped wearing my ring at the same time.

I always wear mine. It does give me blisters. You can tell by my pics that I don't hold onto the bars much anyway. LOL

      My Arctic Cat ATV started sputtering and backfiring and losing power on acceleration and sometimes die. It idles perfectly. I thought it may be the carburetor float sticking and would knock on the bowl and it would run great again for a while. It then started doing the same thing but I began hearing a loud knocking like low octane knock. This is intermittent and does not knock all the time. Thinking it was the carburetor float and possibly an obstruction in the jets I cleaned the tank and carburetor and put a new kit in. Still had the same problem. Bought a new OEM carburetor It still has the same problem at any adjustment? It also seems to improve a small amount when carburetor is disconnected from the filter system. I am starting to think it may be something else causing this possible a Coil or electrical? I would appreciate an experienced reply. I do have automotive shade tree experiences but this has me scratching my head. Thanks in advance!

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.

      I'm likely going to have to drop the swingarm on a 300FW. Are the lock rings and pivot bolts standard or left handed threads?  I looked at the service manual and it doesn't specify left hand so I"m assuming standard right handed threads.  Not sure though.  The last Yamaha I had apart was regular right handed threads but haven't had a 300 apart before.

      A clip from Diamonds Are Forever (1971) with James Bond riding a very early Honda Trike! 
      Three Honda ATCs come in at 1:54 with the one on th left pulling a sweet wheelie for 2 seconds! 
      Bond scenes are great!

      I have a 1993 King Quad LT-F4WDXP. I have had to replace the starter 3 times and each time the end of the shaft where the splines are cut in is all worn down. Getting ready to do it again any ideas on how to solve this problem? Is the a starter gear in the crankcase that is worn or broken. It make a grinding sound while cranking after a week or so.
