Went for a ride yesterday to an area I haven’t been to in about 9 yrs. It’s the Raft River Mountain Range in the Sawtooth National Forest next to the Utah Idaho border. To get to the road / trail I rode, you have to go into Idaho for a ways, then west across about 20 miles of real good dirt road, which is still in Idaho, make a left heading south back into Utah and up into the mountains. After about 7 miles, I parked the truck, unloaded the bike and headed out for a GREAT DAY of RIDING !! :woot:

From my home to where I parked the truck is about 120 miles (one way), so I left the house at 0530, stopped along the way for eggs and bacon … along with my morning “Fee” …. That’s “Coffee” guys & gals !! :coffee:

The mountains actually poke out of the desert floor when viewed from an aerial view in Google Earth. It’s pretty dang flat on three sides of them.

There are some connecting mountains on the West end but when you look North, South or East, it is amazing just how flat the valley floor is & how high in the sky you are. :shock:

I must have seen about 100 Antelope on the way out there and once riding, I saw two big herds of deer. Only got a photo of one group that had split up … and they weren’t waiting around to see if I was just shooting photos of them or a rifle at them !! :wink:

When I got back to the truck and loaded the bike I noticed a sheetrock screw in my tire. :aargh: Luckily it was just into a tread block & not actually into the tire. (See Video Thumbnail)

Hope you enjoy the video and make sure you change the video quality to 1080p for your best viewing enjoyment !! … :seeyac:

NOTE: I also uploaded the video to Vimeo if you would like to watch it there too !!

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      So here where I live in Newfoundland Canada, they let you drive your bike on the road provided it’s registered and insured same goes for crossing highways but on trails you don’t need to be insured. And I don’t even think you need a full license to insure your bike they said it was up to the insurance company. I’m trying to get my old 1985 Suzuki 250 registered they have to do a search for it to make sure it hasn’t been in anyone else’s name first. Hopefully it comes back clean I am pretty excited

      I am in the process of puting it back together after replacing the DPS gearbox.
      The manual I have states that it will need to be flashed by a dealer. Is this still true?
      Also , I have a mystery bolt That I cannot remember where it goes. M6x 70 or so.  Hex head with a flat washer.I will try to attach a pic.
      Pic is no go for now....Cox issue I will try again later
      TIA
