  1. Out and about in 2017

    davefrombc, I wasn't myself calling Kymco junk or crap, that is just what I have heard and read a few people say, in fact I got online and did some research, they do look like a decent machine and I myself read that they were associated with Honda. Too bad they don't make a 2 up machine. We do not have a dealership around here for them but there is one dealership that carries CFMoto

    Really? A Kymco? I've heard they are Chinese Crap! I think there might be a dealer Here I'll take a look. Never know!

    Actually I have, I think that they both look like great machines, the people that had them for sale wanted a bit more than I could afford, I haven't had any encounters with the forest service yet about riding two up on a single so could probably get a way with either one. I will continue to look though. Thanks for the comments on the photos, I am very blessed to live where I live, going to twist the wife's arm and see if I can get here to go out again today to hit another new trail, we'll see.
  4. Out and about in 2017

    Had a very long winter and now a very long Hot DRY summer which I have a feeling will hamper the rest of our riding season as our state has 23 forest fires going right now and makes me a little nervous about going up into the mountains, Have only been out twice this year which really sucks but know one thing for sure am looking for an ATV with PS and IRS. Love the reliability of the Hondas but they are kicking our but when we go out. The Solid Rear Axle is a killer for the wife, and she's not liking the manual shifts so much this season. Don't want the issues that I've read about with CanAm and sorry but Polaris is not even in the running, everyone that I know that has one has nothing but trouble with it. So not sure what direction to go for sure. So here's a few pics from those two rides, can never get enough of being in these mountains. The trail that we were on in the last few pics was a new trail to us so that was fun, found out that it runs for about 25 miles, as the crow flies, into two other drainages and that will be a blast to explore, love the new trails.

  6. Hello from South

    Took the wheels to the dealership and switched out the wheels from my other Rancher and just finished painting those as well. Will put the other one back together when I get home from this Work rotation.

    Amazing how much time all this little crap takes, masking took about hour and a half taking of less than five minutes.
  8. Hello from South

    Some TLC and time. Heard a ticking while running didn't like the sound took it to the dealership. No good news needs top end rebuild. In shop now so working on parts.. Not sure what else they are going to find, it is a 2013 so worth fixing. They tore into the top end and discovered scoring on the cylinder walls, were able to hone it within factory specs. Parts showed up last Friday hopefully by end of next week they will have it back together. Hoping that is all that is wrong, only other thing they said it could be would be cam chain but thought this top end work would take care of it. I guess I'll see.
