The bottom of a drainage ditch and a swingset

Recommended Posts

Rough night, tons of tasty beverages involved. Well you might have seen my thread on my new Zilla mud tires on my 700cc 4 wheeler. Well after 3 solid days of rain me and a buddy decided to go see what we could go get into. We left out about 2am and took off down some dirt roads near the house. We went into an empty grown up lot (est 10 acres) and went a path we have been down a dozen times before. I guess I miscalculated our path and we pummeled down past a 6ft tall concrete culvert with the 4 wheeler on top of us in a shallow pool of old rain water. I estimate it was about a 10 ft drop off straight down. We immediately flipped the 4 wheeler right side up and after choosing an appropriate path out, it started and took us home. Here's what she looked like the next day: Damage was front and rear racks, brake handle, and sticky throttle.

Remember where I said sticky throttle???? Well as I went to put it in the garage later that evening, I blipped the throttle while I wasn't hanging on, did a backflip off the rear rack and watched the 4 wheeler drive itself into the kids swingset. Damn it.

Well I've got a new swingset coming and spent a few hours repairing and cleaning the bike and she looks like it never happened.

Those racks saved a lot of damage.  You lucked out for not having any broken limbs. That's one tuff quad wow. You could say you drove off a cliff with a passenger.

      It's been a while since I looked around at buying ATV tires, so just wondering where everyone is buying their ATV tires from these days? Do you just go to the dealer or do you order them online somewhere? If you get them online, who do you buy from and did you mount them yourself? Also please list your ATV tire brand. 👍

      OK, so I'm a boxing fan...anyone watch last night's fight between Manny Pacquiao & Ricky Hatton?

      The PacMan is just too fast and too accurate. Floyd Mayweather just announced yesterday that he's coming out of retirement to fight Marquez in July. Maybe we'll get a December fight between Pretty Boy and the PacMan?
      So, Manny has convincingly beaten up DeLaHoya (just announced his retirement from boxing) and now Hatton...
