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!

app_full_proxy.php?app=10442206389&v=1&size=o&cksum=8cbf7f67822c9b03c5163f76a1d84445&src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rockymountainatvmc.com%2Fimages%2Frmsite%2FSocialnetwork%2FRMRiders%2FIMG_3573

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.

That's awesome ! Would have loved to have been on that trip. I've been seriously considering selling my DRZ 400, and buying a KTM 530 EXC dual sport for a few months now. Your trip footage just might push me over the edge come spring. Thanks for the updates.

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.

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. A year or so ago we got it running after replacing the kill switch. It ran great but after some use for a couple months it got a flat tire and for some reason we just forgot about it and it sat for some time. Before it sat i replaced the gas cap, fuel filter, fuel pump, petcock, battery, starter relay, oil and oil filter. I recently went to start it and it started so quickly and without choke or throttle but the ATV wouldn't move till about 1/4 throttle and it wasn't really a smooth ride until 1/2 throttle. it also would bog out randomly after you came to a stop and sounded like it was getting too much fuel. I cleaned the carb and adjusted the air/fuel screw to 1 3/4 turns out.  I also messed with the idle and the throttle cable adjuster up on the handlebars. It's safe to say it now runs worse than when i started working on it 2 days ago. It takes more effort to get started and bogs out idling after about 30 seconds. I tried adjusting the idle but every time i do it'll get to a sweet spot but after driving it down the driveway and back the idle will go up and down to the point where i can't put it in gear because the gears will grind. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      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

      Hey All,
      Looking for some recommendations on an ATV for my Daughters-in-law to ride when they visit with my sons. We ride mostly woods trails. It needs to be fairly easy to ride, automatic is't necessary but shifting should be forgiving and it needs to be under $2000. I have a Banshee and a Polaris Sportsman 500HO now.
      One DIL is tiny, 5' and about 100lbs, the other is about 5'8" and 130lbs. I'm concerned that steering on the Sportsman may require too much upper body strength and the Banshee is definitely not a beginner's ride.
      I'm thinking about a Warrior (may be under powered) or a Honda 400EX but I'd love to hear what others might suggest?
      Thanks!

      Went for a ride at Murdock Basin, which is on the South side of the Uinta Mountains. I hadn't been there in about 13 yrs & I had forgotten just how rocky this area is. I did ride some trails I hadn't ridden before & even found one short ATV trail.
      I had the "Check Engine - Transmission Signal Fault" message, but the bike never did go into limp mode, so I just kept riding & a little while later, the message disappeared, so all is good. I did check the wires when I got home & put some dielectric grease on the connection thou.
      Over all, it was a great day of rid'in, I hope you enjoy the video.

      We went for a ride in the day and enjoyed a good old fashioned "North of Seven" party with a few local bands that evening.
      I decided to mesh the two together.
