Dang Hawk you finally gave in to the dark side? The sxs's are nice, but I still ride quads or bikes.

I did, I'm so ashamed. But when it's so rough that you feel like your fillings are going to fall out on a quad, that sxs just cruises right over everything and it's almost as quick up the drag hill.
Pismo for the 4th, you in?

I still jump in every other week or so.

I miss the days of the forums. Facebook is filled with so much false information and filler junk.

shame isnt it?

Then again, do you remember just how many stupid "which exhaust is the best" posts here way back when?

Wow... I havent been on here in quite some time. Nice to still see some old names pop up! Im pretty sure that I am one of the early ones. I know I was the first site sponsor on the page. I still remember where I was when I got the phone call telling me about the site, and how they wanted to put me on as the sponsor.

The forums really changed over the years..... this was by far my most active site. It doesnt hurt that Ive always been a Honda guy. I dont get out to ride much anymore. But I do have an 06 450er. Looks pretty plain, but the entire motor has been gone through and setup to be an aggressive trail machine. I was last out in Hatfield Mccoy in June. Hoping to make another trip this summer.

That trail is on my "to do list" It may be not much of a trail, but the history is amazing. I have gone up to Three fingers, (the Joaquin Murrieta hide ou)t and been to several hide outs of the Cole-Younger gang, but the H/Mc would be the icing on the cake.

Hatfield McCoy was by far the best riding that I have experienced. I stayed for a week in Ashland and had a great time. I would love to get back, but its a 10 hour drive for me, so not exactly a quick weekend trip. I only saw a small portion, mainly the Indian Ridge trail system and some outlaw trails as well as a bit of the surrounding area. Lots more to see down there. Absolutely great riding conditions too!

I thought it was some very fast trails. Gotta watch for the families out there taking it easy, and the sxs. But the trails are well maintained and all. I am used to the PA trails with alot of rock... it was nice to be away from that for a change and really be able to rip. Riding into town was a blast. Being able to walk into a place for a good meal. Pull right up to a gas pump. It was really nice.

Interesting. Friends of mine went 2x and stated while it was nice, you wont be getting out of 3rd gear in most areas due to the trail/traffic.

Its a huge area, so i suppose there are many places that are tighter and slower than were I was that week. But I am hoping to go back to explore some different places.

We stayed at Ashland and rode most of the Indian Ridge section and some of Pinnacle. We rode down to Bramwell and had lunch one day as well. On our last day we did a 95 mile day trip with Ziggys Tours on the Outlaw trails that was a blast.
