2 strokes are god's gift to sand dunes, just not yours! I saw a 2 stroke 4x4 the other day at the competition. Don't know what brand but it was old.

two stokes= rebuild after one trip to the dunes. ha the sand tears them up. While they might be fast and if done right can not be touched on the hill climbs the sand tears them apart and they already are extremely touchy.

To me riding is an escape from reality. It's a way to get away from normal hectic life and just go out and have good old fun.

It's also an awesome hobby...I love the outdoors and going places that most don't even think of going...

I ride in MA and PA. NY (my home state) sucks big time and doesn't have any state parks.

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
