WOW!! Those are some great pictures. Thank you very much for posting that. Really makes me want to go out there. I was in Arizona's Grand Canyon as a kid, years ago before I was atving. Maybe one day I'll be able to get out there with my atv. Looks awesome!

I talked to you on ATV pathfinder and you told me I should get a Rincon. You have a Rincon and I was wondering if you have any trouble pulling or if you have trouble on hills, or any trouble at all? I went to Honda today and am going to get one next week I hope unless you tell me something bad. I hope to take a trip out there either this spring or next fall and want to ride as much as possible while I am there.

HA! I've had more than one conversation with Desert Hawk on ATV Pathfinder too. You'd be hard pressed to find a nicer, more knowledgeable guy. I'd say welcome to the site, but you've been a member here longer than I have.:wink:

      I just picked up a 2006 Kazuma Falcon 110 for my son. The previous owner ended up taking off the airbox and filter and replacing it with a cone style air filter and no airbox at all.
      My son loved to ride through puddles, big ones, with his Polaris Predator (before it got stolen) and I'm wondering if I buy the OEM airbox/filter for the Falcon, will it protect the engine from the puddle splashes. Someone told me the standard airbox may have vents that won't protect it.
      Anyone have experience with the Falcon and riding in wet conditions?
      Thanks in Advance.

      New to ATVing and by the end of the summer I'll probably be heading out into some remote mountain regions for some back country trail riding, and I'm wondering just what kind of stuff/tools etc I should bring along in case of breakdowns/events etc. Short list so far includes a GPS (probably a Garmin Montana 650T), a tire repair kit, and courtesy of my Mom one of those satellite personal locator beacons, probably the ResQLink+ from ACR.
      Any other suggestions for stuff that might come in handy?

      My son riding his LT160


      of course I took off the GoPro then we rode another new trail and he somehow got it upside down in a gulley 5 feet below a trail in a rat's nest of Prickers, trees, tall grass, weeds and tree braches. It took me 20 mins to get it out and it started right up! The LT160 is a tank. Wish I had GoPro on that ride
