I bought an 09 Ruby about three weeks ago. Only have 30 miles on it. I will share my opinion of it with you.
It has a 499 cc liquid cooled engine. Part time four wheel drive. Automatic tranny with High and low range. With the ability to be in auto or thumb shift mode.
The tranny is very smooth. It's a hydro stat transmission.I mostly use auto mode, but when I have used ESP mode I also like that feature.
Going into 4x4 mode is also smooth. Engine braking is unbelievable!!!! Handling for trail and dirt road riding is outstanding!! Stock tires work great for stockers. Ergonomics are also great(for me).
I have added a 2500 lbs winch. I will be adding hand guards, and a snowplow soon. I currently modifying the plow from my old Ozark to fit. I have widen it from 46 inch to 58 inch wide. Looks like something out of a Mad Max movie.
These guys are trying to get a Club together to purchase some land and have a riding spot in Sumner Co. I am interested in joining them.
We're putting together a group of people, to lease purchase some property to ride on, we are in negotiations on 614 acres in Sumner County. It will be structured like a Club with dues so that we have the money to obtain and improve the property. The dues would be higher than a traditional ATV or motorcycle club because the club would own the land.
We are simply tired of driving 2+ hours to Coal Creek, Windrock, Brimstone, Turkey Bay etc. to ride.
We need serious riders that are willing to commit for a minimum of a year, to make this work.
If interested contact us at [email protected] with your contact info including phone number and we will contact you to discuss options and ideas.
Thanks in Advance!
We’ve got over 80 people so far and some great options, but it will take more people to make it work.
Pass this on to everyone you know!
