back in town for a bit

Recommended Posts

and thought I would stop in and say hi. Been back and forth between Atlanta and San Jose lately for work. I came home last week and decided to take the quads out on the girlfriends birthday. Unfotunatly, she lost it and rolled her Warrior end over end a few times. Quad is pretty thrashed but I pulled it straight with the porta power and will be welding some gussets in to keep it straight. As for her...2 compound fractures to fingers on her right hand, several broken toes and the rear fender mount came through the plastic and caught her in the thigh giving a deep puncture wound. Plus road rash in several spots.We spent her birthday evening in the local ER. So I am staying in town this week to take care of her and get some stuff done around the house.

yeah she is tough. she already said "I think I know what I did wrong, I need to ride that again"

We were up at IMI Dale. She rolled it on the little track against the back fence. There is a little step up that you cant see very well and I think she had the old dog rapped out and hit it kicking the back end over.

I was on the asphalt track making adjustments to the supermomto setup. I was planning on running the race last sunday but stayed with her instead.

      Hi all,
      Picked up my first Brute Force yesterday. What should have been an awesome afternoon of riding turn a bit into a deception. As I was unable to really take it out for a test drive at the shop, I decided to buy it and agreed that I would take the test drive at home. 
      When giving full throttle I noticed that the Brute was choking and lost all of its powers. Faulty fuel pump most likely. 
      Called the shop and the are coming to pick it up and repair it and bring it back. Good service. Nevertheless feels a bit sour in the mouth as I was told it was a 100% good. 
      Need to have some patience I now before I can really start riding.

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      We made Trail Town as a side product of our mapping products. The concept is simple.. list the businesses that are actually on the trail to help riders figure out where they can rest, eat and play while out on the trails. This program launched a few weeks ago with great results so far. We want to know what you think though...
      Along with the listings, maps and videos we also allow riders to send in their own reviews of the places we post. The businesses listed can also claim their listing and update pictures and info. SO far we started with ATV since we also run www.watva.org and it goes hand in hand. A portion of the Trail Town listing actually goes to make the business part of WATVA too, helping fuel more riding area creation and a stronger information network. It also sparked a new web show called Riding Adventures Today which includes all the trail town videos for a place we visit but also trail info, product reviews and other neat things you'll want to check out when at a location.
      Below are a few clips to give you an idea of what it is about
      Pineland Camping Park | ATV UTV Trail Town Listing
      Again, Trail Town is being made to help riders plan trips and mark locations to visit along the way. We are still working on the site and adding new locations every day.

      Hey guys.
      I just joined the site and I thought that I mite as well say hi to everyone.
      I was a diehard snowmobile guy untill the last few years when we've got jack for snowfall, so now it's time to try this whole ATV thing.
      I have a 2005 Polaris Sportsman 500 H.O. I've had it now for a few months and I really like the bike but i'm starting to think it's time to upgrade tires and lift it!
      So you may see some threads in the future on these topics.
      Thanks guys and the first rounds on me. :cheers2c:
