I know it's all ATV's here, but here's our first video showing some of our guys getting ready for their 2,000 mile round trip ride to LA Supercross and back. It will definitely be a tough, but fun ride. If it goes well hopefully we'll keep making these videos for people to check out riding areas, and trails. It will be cool to test out some products and give reviews from the trail too!

Check it out and let me know what you guys think,

Thanks guys. The ride started out a little rough, one of our bikes batteries died about an hour after leaving. We got it taken care of and we're back on our way though. We'll be putting our video and pic updates on here but if you want to see more updates you can check out our

New updates guys, there was a lot exciting moments yesterday that's for sure!


Day two dawned and we were ready to take off to find another battery issue. One of the KLR's was having fits. We attemped a bump start, but in 40 degree weather, it wasn't happening. After a couple other short cuts, we gave in and tore it apart. I guess the heated gear took more of a toll than we thought.

We were able to get on dirt outside of town. This combined with warmer temps had us in a much better mood. Most of us on this ride cut our teeth on dirt bikes and migrated to dual sport/adventure riding. Adam, on the other hand, came from the other side of the tracks. Needless to say, he is increasing his skill set!

Our prototype panniers are holding up, but our mount system needed some work. A very rough pole line trail wreaked havoc. I finally reached the limits of my patience and tossed the quick release stuff and had them bolted on permanent. It is nice having our engineer on the ride. He makes me feel like I'm a factory rider!

We made our way through Goldfield, NV. Outside of town is a junk collectors mecca. Someone has modge-podged several cars with stuff I can't even describe; poker chips, shells, sand, Santa Claus statues, etc. They have even woven a giraff out of shredded pop cans. Good stuff.

Sunday 1/23/10 – Today we decided to head south to see the Salton sea. The morning started out with no problems and we expected (hoped for) a smooth sailing day. We made it to the Salton sea. It is huge! It was pretty windy and stinky!! We looked around the visitor center. I guess it was quite popular back in the 50’s and 60’s. They are working to clean it up and revive it now. The beach is loaded with dead fish (which explains the smell). Infact, the sand looks like it is made from fish bones and scales.

      Hi everyone. 
      Let me explain the thread title. 
      My husband and I are very active in the nudist community, and we have stayed at many and most of the mainstream nudist and clothing optional campgrounds in the USA. We are now approaching our retirement and would like to start a podcast to share those off the road / backwoods / little known camping areas where nudity is allowed. We have purchased a 5th wheel camping trailer with a rear garage for the ATV and now need some good reports on the one to buy. 
      We are most interested in a side by side unit but would love to get your thoughts. 
      Feel free to stop by and say Hi and ask anything you would like to better understand what we are looking for in an offroad unit. 
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you.

      Hello everyone, I just picked up an 02 LT-F250F the other day and have been in the process of tearing it down to fix some stuff- one of which was the cylinder base gasket leaking like a sieve. Well, I know why that is now, and I also discovered that someone had been in there before. I didn't take pictures, but it looks like it was probably run low on oil at some point, the cam journals and the "bearings" (for lack of a better term) in the head and the valve cover are totally wiped out, very deep grooves.  From what I know it's very difficult to repair aluminum in this way, so I'm trying to figure out where to go next.
      1. Have someone grind down the head and valve cover and fit actual bearings in since the aluminum is screwed, and have the cam ground down to match.  I have no idea what this would cost.
      2. Buy a replacement head+cam+valve cover.
      #1 I was hoping someone might have some advice on, but #2 seems like it'll (probably) be the more cost effective option.  However I'm running into some difficulty, it seems like the 2001 and 2002 models specifically use a different head part number,  11100-19B10, instead of  11100-19B01 like for all earlier models.  What exactly is the difference between them? There are obviously far more of the earlier heads because it ran for over 10 years.  Are they actually interchangeable? I've also noticed there are heads from the LT250EF that has 4 valve heads but also otherwise look identical.  Would those work as well possibly?  I'd like to not have to drop $500 on machine work or new heads on a $1300 quad that I'm already putting a bunch of new parts on.  Oh, and it has a new piston and the cylinder itself looks pretty good too, as I said someone was in here before me.
      Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I'll post pics of the carnage tomorrow.

      If you had to choose one mod that you couldn't live without, or had to recommend one what would it be?

      The ATV Supercross at Daytona International Speedway once again proved to be a demanding and rough track that would fully test the mentality of riders in attendance. View the full article
