It was cold and snowing but we decided to take a ride today.....typical end of may weather, snow and sunshine. ;D We had an experienced group so we did not stop very often for pictures. We had to stop and shed some layers. Half way up we made another stop. It was pretty neat to see the snow line from last night in the trees behind us. Yes it is still cold. Looks like a good place to stop for lunch. The fire felt great!! We took a rocky trail to the top that we haven't been on in a few years....it was defiantly fun and awarded us with a partially blocked view due to the weather. It looks like they logged this area of the trail recently. We had a great trip, we rode a hard 30mi in everything from sun to snow. I am ready for the next one.
Dave got new paws on his new Sportsman 850XP EPS so we HAD to take it out this morning for it's first real trip. It was about as nice of a spring morning as they come so we decided to attempt the summit of Chase mnt. Great looking quad!! One happy camper...can you blame him? Those Bajacross tires are sick! Part way up I had to stop and take a few shots. Spring time makes for some good photo ops. Looking back at Topsie where we started. It wasn't long until we found show. It was SOFT and deep in the drifts. First trip out and first time stuck, thats what you get for letting a PoPo try to break trail. We need to install the winch.....Grizz to the rescue. That XP can throw some snow Enough playing around...follow me. We made it to the summit. Great views all around. Dave texting his wife telling how cool his new ride is. Great views on the way back down. Good times.
A very good friend of mine who lives 100mi away and has been working another 100mi further away called and wanted to ride his quad. I quickly got on the phone and we put together the dust bowl ride to the Chase mnt lookout. Getting ready. With the thunder storms at night there were quite a few lightning fires around, a lot of the smoke was coming in from No. California. Dave and his bike. He had a hard time in the beginning but was very comfortable by days end. The tower There was a guy manning the tower that day so he invited us up to look around. Smoke all around Shasta in the background above the smoke We had one minor mishap on the trip. Super Don lost his transmission so we headed back to help him load up. After the load up a few of us ran over to a play area we call the moon. It is very soft and flowery in the summer and EXTREMELY slimy in the winter, not to mention it is steep all around. It is very technical and I will have to get better pictures of it sometime. Jackonager learning to use his diff lock. He is new but learning fast. We had a great BBQ at a buddies house after words....mmmmm Tritip.... Later that night we were treated to a great sunset. Great ride and even better friends.
A small group of us decided to brave the temperatures in the teens and go for a snow ride. Only the third trip out on the new quad....need to break it in right. The group shot. The views did not disappoint We went up the mountain until the snow just got too deep to continue and headed down. Dave busting trail for a while, the Polaris 850 Snow Machine.

On a short steep hill we did a little tire comparison. Polaris 850 stock tires. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnnAeVt-Jqc]YouTube - 100 2221[/ame] Same rider 850XP with ITP Bajacross tires....big difference. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIqSR-6zwJQ]YouTube - 100 2223[/ame] Usually my ITP MudLites prove very effective in the snow but he was able to run circles around us with those tires. The Mudlites do well but when you loose momentum you dig, the Bajacross kept him moving forward. It was a great trip, good powder, good friends and great views.
