Rid'in Some Arapeen Trails

Recommended Posts

Decided to get up early Saturday morning & head 165 miles South to Mayfield, Utah to meet my younger brother, who has family down there, and do some rid'in on some of the Arapeen trails. :partyc:

But at 0300 the thunder and lighting & downpour woke me up & I wasn't sure I was going to go. But I decided, "What the heck !" ... but once I got on the freeway, I wasn't so sure I had made the right decision ... Dang but the water was com'in down and 55mph felt way to fast to be traveling !!

About 65 miles down the road the rain quit ... or I should say, the storm had passed that area ... & the roads were semi dry & the sky was clear ... sorta ... for another 40 miles before it started coming down again. I was thinking this whole time that the trails where going to be beyond muddy & slippy if we even went rid'in. But, the last 40 miles the rain had quit again ... so things were look'in up. :hurrayc:

I met my brother & his wife at a small cafe for some vittles & then back to his in-laws to unload .... and meet his brother-in-law, his wife & their son ... so that's when I told there would be five of us riding. Man, that's more people than I've ridden with in a LONG time !! :toetap05c:

And after we got to one of the trail heads, I also remembered why I don't ride weekends or holidays since I retired ... I've never seen so many freak'in people outside of the dunes !! However, it really wasn't to bad out on the trails .... so it really wasn't TOO bad !! :wasntme:

We did 69 miles ... had sunshine, some rain, dust, mud ... and an overall great time !! I was going to head back home, but they talked me into spending the nite & the vittles they cooked up made it all worth it !! Yum ! Yum !

Here’s a short video of some of the days action ... hope you enjoy it !! And remember, change the quality setting to 1080p & use either the middle size or full screen, for an overall excellent viewing experience .............. WHAT ?? :seeyac: ... :smilielol5c:

THANKS TRX Guy !! Glad you liked the vid AND the tunes !! :cheers2c:

It's some great rid'in for sure ... I was surprised at the number of sport quads I saw on some of these trails too. :shock2: I use to have a Banshee and there is NO WAY I would ride it in the mountains. I mean, it can be done, but if I'm hitt'in bottom on the rocks with 27 inch tires ... what the hell is the guy do'in to the bottom of his quad with 20 inch tires ?? :shock: But each his own I guess :thinking:

THANKS for watch'in too !!

I love the fact that you didn't go around the puddles and went right up the middle of them. Another excellent video. Those trails are spectacular.

      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 !!
