I'm new too, just signed up! The forum looks great. I just found out there are places to ride within two hours of me (Bundy Hill, Mounds ORV and the Sandbox), I'm in Macomb Twp.

I'd don't have a quad yet but given those three places (Mounds ORV being the nearest to me) I listed above I'll have to figure out whether to get a utility or sport quad. Any suggestions?

Hey man, yeah Maccomb isnt too far away from me depending where you are in maccomb as for sport or utility it depends on what you like to do more, I love speed, wheelies, and jumping so I rock a yfz 450 but if you like rocking crawling mudding and stuff like that then utility is for you. Im about an hour from Mounds and Bundy hill so Ill be checking those out every once in a while but trying to find closer riding areas like private land and what not.

I've ridden both utility and sport quads and I am considering the one best suited to the areas I'll be riding in. I like both and was wondering what the conditions/terrain at Mounds favored. The Sand box is defintely a place for sport quads and I'm not sure about Bundys.

Private land sounds great if you can find it. There was a place in Holly called the "Holly Family Farm", this was the info on it:

Holly Family Farm

13219 North Holly Rd

Holly, MI 48442

248-328-0945

(sat 12:30 to dark; sun 10:00 to 8:00pm)

The website is still up: Holly Family Track

There are even some YouTube videos of people riding ditbikes and quads there but there contact info isn't doesn't work.

Holeshot if i where you I would not base a quad purchase off of one place. Personally the mounds is nothing but mud and a utility quad is perfect for there. With that said that is the only place that a utility quad would be better than a sport. Most private land owners that allow quads to ride from my experience wont let the utility quads do any mudding as it creats a lot of damage to the area and they dont want to deal with the ruts and whole from the puddles. As far as the state land I have been up to this year you can ride anything but I personally could not see riding these trails on a utility as they are just way to fun on a sport as you can go much faster and there are a TON and I mean a TON (ha Mike5469?) of whoops that would beat you up on a utilty. Its all on what kind of riding you personally like to do. There are areas around that you can find that would be perfect for either type especially if you look on forums and talk to enough people. You will get in contact with people that know of places for either or. The web is a wonderful place. Good luck and keep us posted.

Holeshot also there are enough people on this thread alone that you could hook up with and ride.

Mikel5469, Me and Ppalimino all ride sport quads.

      Come on up, here to Michigan, with so many great trails, covering half our state! So many trails it would take a life time, to explore them all! Get with me and lets plan a trip, where I can save you years of trying to find the best of the trails, towns, restaurants, lakes, hill climbs, campgrounds, so much clean sand, you'll think your riding in Arizona lol!
      Summer will be here, before you know it! 
      If your over 50, so as to have more in common, join me, and lets ride!
      Thanks, Steve

      Summer days here in the northern part of the state don't last that long! Right now is perfect riding conditions with cooler nights slowly creeping in. 
        My son and I will be going up this weekend but its been nearly 2 months since our last trip up and after our next trip it could be quite some time before he'll be able to get more time off work. 
        If you know anyone that might like a few days out up north to do a trip to ride and camp please get in touch real soon! Thanks Steve

      Need buddy/friend over 50 for up north michigan trail riding companion for camping, outdoor cooking, diners. Have kids to go with but most of the time their too busy. My areas to ride are around st Helens, Mio. Been camping, riding there since 86 with our first Honda 200sx quad that i presently own, but have had many since with my newest Honda trx450r just bought. I have a van for hauling w/trailer if needed and camping equipment. I always share in expenses equally.  If your interested or know of someone get back with me and lets ride!! Thanks Steve
        Ps I have a spare quad but there's a cost to rent for days used, but could be refunded if bought.
