They may be a dealer for Hisun but under the Coleman brand name. Many dealers are using the Coleman brand name for recognition as hardly anyone knows the Hisun brand unless you have one. Same machine with different decals on it.

This week we're looking at a company that went from one employee to 65 on account of the human desire to conquer muck:

One of my brothers has a Sportsman 850 High Lifter edition that comes with some of their aftermarket goodies like 29.5" High Lifter Outlaw 2 tires straight from the factory. The 850 is way cheaper than the 1000 and has plenty of power. He plays in the mud a lot and is happy with it as is with no additional mods.

I never had much of a desire to conquer muck, except when I was in it up to my eyeballs. I always enjoy a home made success story like this. My congratulations to the High Lifter company.

We have no choice in some spots. You ether go through or turn around. Land owners don't like the trail getting wider and wider as people go around and end up making more mudholes.

Absolutely Moose. "Stay the Trail" as we say in Colorado. On my last trail ride we had 50 yards of water covering the trail. We got off and determined how deep, and if the bottom was solid enough. It was, and through we went with no problems. My friends, and now I, would never consider leaving the established trail. We mostly ride on government land, and if you are caught riding on alpine tundra, well, it's 20 years of hard labor for you.

I think it's even a bigger issue out West where the climate is a lot drier than here in New England. I noticed some scrub oak along the rivers and streams in the Paiute Trail area. They were maybe 30 ft. high at best. Here, a tree can get up over 100' if it doesn't get damaged by snow or insects. In other words, it takes a lot longer for brush and grass to grow back out West. It sure doesn't help when riders go off trail and damage the fragile areas. Here, I've seen clear cut areas left for a couple years, end up with 12' tall hardwood trees. It's almost jungle like in some places.

This week we're giving credit where it's due to a most unlikely of places - Hollywood! Come see how they did what they could to get the ATV market rolling here in the US:

This week we're looking at a company that is best known for making gun boots but with a history deeper than most realize:

Gawd I installed so many of these gun boots over the years. Everyone loved them. Glad to see the company is still going strong in atv accessories and implements.
