Went for a ride the other day .... but I got to were I wanted to unload ... stepped outta the truck .. AND HOLY SHYTER !!! ..... Damn skeeters started crav'in hunks off me. It was terrible all day long. It was overcast, a threat of rain (which it do later), no wind ... not even a freak'in breeze .... and then mother nature calls & says, "You need to take care of business Tough Guy !!" ........ DAMN SKEETERS !!! c002.gif

I rode for hrs before I even made my first stop ... didn't even eat my lunch when I was hungry cause I didn't want a skeeter sandwich ... I don't remember them being that bad since Nam !!! HOLY MOLY !!! c029.gif

Saw deer, a Moose cow & her calf (which had started some antlers), antelope, snowshoe rabbits, a mean & nasty badger, some deer ... Oh yeah .... and did I tell ya, lots & lots of skeeters !!! 93.gif ... and found some Elk Antler sheds ... both sides ... 5 on one side, 4 on the other .... they were on a ridge top about 75 yds from each other ... 72.gif

Found some new trails & got to try out my new clutches ... one of which I'm taking off cause I'm not happy with it ... and then the rain started ........ WOO HOO !! .... Anyway ... I continued up the road until I hit a huge snowdrift block'in the road. And I've never seen so many downed trees ... I was knock'in the branches off one pine so it wouldn't have any "Tire Stabbers" .... & put one thru my boot .... sure glad it didn't take any skin !!! 57.gif

Only thing is when it rains were I was, the road I had to drive back on .... is like wet cement !!! ...... Then I came upon a woman about a mile & a half from the highway slid into a ditch .... in sandles ... no coat ..... rain'in & skeeters eat'in away at her .... dumbass woman .... I tried winching her out but her little truck was to heavy down in the ditch & on that grease called mud .... finally talked her into backing down the ditch ... she finally got out, but man, did she tear that poor little truck up .... dumbass woman !!! 38.gif

Did 70 miles total & that's a lot of miles for me ... and I DIDN'T SEE ONE OTHER PERSON ALL DAY .... except that woman that was stuck ... damn near ruined my day !! .........but what a GREAT DAY OF RID'IN !! wee_hee.gif

Here's a short vid of the day & some photo's ... enjoy ... wootSMILEY.gif

      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. 😎

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      Bulldog truck bed ATV carrier - Haul 2 ATV’s with a short bed truck and tow a trailer! 
      I am selling my Bulldog truck bed ATV carrier for $750. This rack slides into the back of a short bed (6.5') or long bed truck and allows you to rear load and haul 2 full size ATV's, and tow a bumper-pull travel trailer at the same time. I purchased the rack about 10 years ago from a dealer in Eugene, OR. When stored it has always been covered with a tarp. Now we only have one ATV which I carry in the truck bed so I no longer need the rack. This rack is stoutly built and all welded together, unlike other flimsy carriers currently on the market. Bulldog Manufacturing out of Marysvale Utah quit making them about 5 years ago. It includes two 12 ft. aluminum folding ramps that store under the ATV's. Also included are four heavy duty ratchet tie downs for each corner of the truck bed, and six over the wheel tie downs to secure two ATV’s to the rack. The measurements of the rack are:
      Base – base of rack measures 73" long, 47" wide, and 23” tall.
      Deck – deck of rack measures 80” long and 102” wide.
      My name is George and I am located east of the Sacramento CA area, pick up only.  If you’re interested or have any questions, please text me or call me at 916-826-5587.  Thanks!

      I have a Sportsman 450 HO and almost killed my self when loading it on my truck with ramps.  It rolled off the top of the ramps and tailgate and nearly landed on me.  I now want to winch the ATV in to the truck.  My question is are the front side bed tiedowns in my 2011 RAM strong enough to winch to without distorting the hooks or sides of the bed?

      A friend and I went for a chilly ride last ride of the year and it was a chilly one. The high during daylight hours was 4*F (-15.5c) with a 30mph wind which gave us a wind chill of -20.4*F (-29c). Then when the sun went down, the temp dropped to -11*f (-23.8c) and the wind picked up to around 40 to 50mph, so we had a wind chill of -39*F (-42c). Yup, it was Nippy !! I had a heck of a time because my glasses, inside of my helmet, kept freezing over with ice & I couldn't see. I think I had more wind blowing into my helmet than breathing air going out. We were riding at a lower elevation (6700 ft to 7200 ft) and since it's been so cold & we've had so much wind, the snow was sugary & not very deep. But we still had a Great Day On The Snow !! WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO !!!! Hope you enjoy the video !!
