First Trip of the Year

Recommended Posts

Well Mike5469 and I went up to Hale Mi yesterday with much anticipation for our first ride of the year. The weather was perfect, the trails in the morning where icy and a little wet, but we didnt let that slow us down. It felt so good to get on the machines and finally ride when it is not 10 degrees and 10 inches of snow. I cant wait until next time.

Getting Ready to take off

25 miles in to the first destination this tree jumped out in front of Mike and clipped his right rear tire bending the axle. WTF I cant believe that tree didnt look both ways before crossing that trail.

The Damage the tree caused. The best part is Mike was A OK. Just a bruised ego.

ya I am very glad he didnt get hurt. Thats why I am giving him crap because I know it wasnt that bad and he is fine. Plus he had an extra axle at home so shouldnt cost him jusch but time to get it ready to go again.

That must have been a pretty good hit to bend your axle like that, could have easily knocked you right off the quad, did you get some good hangtime?

nope first wreck my quad caught a tree root and sent me flying wish I got that on camera, the one that broke everything I hit a little jump went a little to far into a turn and the tree was in the way. The third time was when we were riding back and the wheel with the busted tie rod dug into the ground and almost sent me flying again.

it's a good thing that you didnt get hurt either,our quads can be fixed or replaced,we can't be replaced and sometimes we are not able to be fixed. I have alaways respected the power of a wheeler,but never have been afarid of them

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
