I feel like I am in one of the great ATV riding areas. With in a hour and 1/2 drive in any direction I can ride desert terrain of all skill levels (racing the washes is fun), ride ridges with un-obsturcted views for miles. Mountain wooded trails from beginner to the hardest stuff I have ever ridden, sand dunes, major hill climbs, and mud. Wooded trails are my favorite ride and it's so great to just get out, have fun and leave everything else behind.

VERVE must not live very far from me....We are on the eastern slope of the Cascades here so I can ride into the National Forest from my garage. It's the perfect place to test bikes and quads I have worked on! Hardly a day goes by here that I don't hear at least a few motorcycles echoing thru the trees after school's out.... The national forest runs about 300 miles north to south and 50 miles east - and then it is all prairie and desert all the way to Boise Idaho and beyond. [a little over 300 miles].

Nearby is the East Fort Rock Recreation area, the largest USFS developed riding area in the USA. with 110,000 acres and 318 miles of riding trails. I'll put a link in here so you can see how we have developed [the clubs play a big part] the Central/Eastern Oregon area.

WOW what a great way to relax!

I actually have alot of fun riding at RAC with Markdb. He has the video and gps so i just follow and try to keep up. I like to just ride for the day at our own pace. We never have to show off and no egos mean a safe and pleasurable ride.

Second best is riding on the streets. Yeah its not legal but still its a real thrill in suburbia

Third best would be at the mx track. Its just a place to get out my stress quickly. All three mx tracks are less than 30min from my house. But its expensive, tiring and gets boring fast.

I don't get to go far due to family health problems so for now it's my little patch of woods across the street from my house. But it brings a smile to my face and helps with the everyday stress. Reminds me of when I was young and spending the day riding dirt bikes. It's something I missed for many years.

There are 3 types of riding I like to do and its biased because of where I live and the fact that I've never ridden on the sand or in the mountains.

  1. Wooded trails in the spring - nice because the weather is breaking and winter is over.
  2. Wooded trails in the fall - leaves all changing pretty cool.
  3. Wooded trails in the winter - no leaves and all snow.

Summer is nice too, but most of the free time are taken up by BBQs, beach, and other outdoor activities...LOL. 

Now, my list would more than likely change if I did some riding in other areas of the country like some of the videos Gunny and other post. :D

Forgot to add what riding does for me.  It let's me have the opportunity to share the extra machine with friends, hence the ones in the photo, and to just escape the daily grind of life and take advantage of the area I live.

Definitely the mountains for me, getting to the top of a ridge or coming over a rise and seeing a huge open expanse of valleys, nothing better.

Yes that was for a 4th of July video.  I do use firework props throughout the year though.  I have plans for a fire and ice video, but have not been able to pull it off yet. Fireworks and snow..

I ride on paved roads, up and down hills, anywhere my wheels FORCE me to go:D What it does for me pisses off my neighbor's and police and FORCES me to buy more gas.

I know right?  We have just scratched the surface of what is available to us having only been riding for a couple of years.   And these views are the ones available from trails we can access with our machines.  My brother in law and I hiked to a peak that I had never been to and have lived here my entire life.  9839ft to the top was an awesome day, wind was blowing about 50mph(80kph).  We had a great ride to a small mountain lake, (Fairy Lake) then hiked from there to Sacajawea peak. The picture with the peak circled is the peak we hiked to.  Makes me wonder why I've waited all these years to take advantage of where I live. Oh I know........Because I'm an IDIOT!!!!!!

 I grew up illegally riding on old reclaimed Coal Mine land. My home town in Southern Illinois is completely surrounded by acres beyond acres of abandoned strip mines. Miles of abandoned roads, trails, strip hills, slag pits, you name it. You could literally ride all day, completely circle the entire town, only have to cross a few hard roads, and never see the same trail twice. It wasn't till about 10 years ago they started selling off the land to private land owners. Before that time the Land was monitored by very loosely at first the still then Land owners. The mining companies. If you ran into them, as long as you were respectful, not tearing anything up, or trashing the place they would just tell us we were done riding there for the day. A few years after that the local and county authorities along with Fish and Game became involved. At first they only really knew about the main entrances and would attempt to roadblock us there or ensue a high speed pursuit of anywhere between 5 & 30 ATV's. Who aint stopping for shit unless they wreck out. That is if we didn't just bust a 180 and head back in where the cruisers couldn't go. After years of riding we had so many trails leading on and off the property, some of which lead directly to friends and fellow riders property. Which all had garages, pole barns, wooded areas, and houses. We had hideouts and safe havens all over the county. It became a game of really fat Cat vs. super fast little mouse. Sadly, this game would diminish our numbers. Parents started asking where we were riding at. The authorities started tracking bike owners as well as figuring out some of our escape routes. little by little It became increasingly more difficult to go riding without involving yourself in several felonious activities. The final nail in the coffin was all of the Illegal hunting and poaching going on in our absence from the land. It became a huge problem. That is when the Sheriffs office along with Fish & Game upped the ante and bought a fleet of Quads. Utility and Sport bikes to patrol the area. Little did we all know and in hindsight its so obvious now. There was never a HUGE poaching problem on the land because of all of us and our Two to Four wheeled noise makers that came screaming through 24/7.

  If you have never been or if the opportunity presents itself to you. I highly recommend spending a weekend at The Land Between The Lakes in Kentucky (Turkey Bay). Which sits on 170,000 Acres of National Recreation land and has over 100 miles of designated ORV trails. Even in its awesomeness it Fails to even compare to the shear size of all the mines I learned how to ride on.

   It was then and still is today the absolute freedom of riding a Quad that has had me hooked since day one. When I'm wheelin its just me, the bike, and the volume of Gasoline on hand..... I love the smell of Klotz Bean Oil, playing in the dirt, and feeling that ole d*ck tickler between my legs as the power band comes up when i slam through the gears. I also like to go FAST like Ricky Bobby. Sweet Momma Speed!! Until next Rant.... Deuces!!!
