No pictures just a short video my friend did for me for my b-day.

Happy Birthday from Doug - YouTube

That was certainly not what I would describe as "smooth".

When I went on the Kawasaki test ride for the forum I was ripping along on the last run of the day. The photographer Kawaski hired for the event was behind me. I saw a nice little berm to pop off. Hit the throttle just a touch to late to launch it. Came down hard on the front tires. Banged my knees on the front plastic and almost went over the front. Unlike you, no one got a video!!!

Just a couple of pictures from here around the resort I took yesterday. We got about 3" of snow.






A view of our Track 89 Caboose Village from both sides.


Our "RR Bridge" that we built out of two 90" flat cars that we brought
in from Nebraska.


From where I took a few of the pictures.


The Sevier River that runs through our resort.

Sevier River in Marysvale Canyon passing through Big Rock Candy Mountain Resort & RV Park - YouTube

I shot this short video for a friend yesterday to show him how high the water is.
Normally at this time of year the river is almost dry but we have had a very wet year
this year and the resevoirs are full so they are letting out as much as the can to try and
be ready for the spring run off.

I went and got my Christmas Tree yesterday.


loaded and ready to go



it's nice having some place you can go that no one else can
One lock belongs to folks who own some mining claims up the canyon.
One lock belongs to the Forest Service.
One belongs to me and the other belongs to the game warden.

That second video looked really steep. Have you bounced back on the Rubi lately just to see how different the two quads feel?

I haven't yet Moose but I was thinking about it yesterday. I have a set or "prototype" tires on it and was thinking of putting my Black Diamonds back on and riding it a bit. I actually haven't even started it since I got the Touring.

I use to aks Doug why he never rode his KQ - his favorite ATV and he would always say; "why ride mine when I can ride one for free?". I now understand that.

I find this Touring with these Black Diamond XTRs to be a very aggressive machine. That hill was quite steep.

It looked steep on the video and videos never really capture how steep the hill is, or how big the rocks are.

It was a pretty good climb Moose. Enough fun you would think it was illegal.
