We usually ride horses Labor Day Weekend, but weather is not cooperating, so my options are

A: Work on the farm

B: Go riding atv/utv somewhere


Anybody have any good ride plans?

JodyT, I may have been on flat land to long to hang with your crew...been a year since I have been in the mountains. lol.

Makes me think about a progressive stages for Technical Riding: Know Fear to No Fear, we can call this the Know-No Technical Scale, Or Know NO Scale (KNO) for short

Know Fear:
LEVEL 1: No, I am not going to do that. You people are crazy.
LEVEL 2: After a five minute get out of the vehicle and look, Knees are shaking, friends hanging onto the machine, multiple spotters, go ahead and go. Skinny line soon to follow...
LEVEL 3:  If they can do it, so can I.  Go ahead, make my day.
LEVEL 4: Lets go.
LEVEL 5:  Either lead follow or get the he#@ out of the way.
NO FEAR

NC', so true, so true, on the Grizzly after our last Brimstone ride, I went from a solid LEVEL 3 rider to a four and brief peaks of a five. Even JMRUBICON commented on my riding style change after the Brimstone trip. That was one reason I got off the Grizzly, was no longer afraid of it. Usually with me, serious pain soon follows.

Oveerall, regressing now, except for mud, just don't want to get that dirty anymore....lol.

Gotta get there first. Last year I was a good 4, now I have regressed somewhere between a 2 and 3.

Guys. There is just too much good riding to mess with the class 4 and 5 stuff. Plus, some folks judge how much fun they had by their repair bill. If I had to fix something EVERY ride I would quit. Sure, items will break, tires will get sidewalled, and PM does need to be done.
But, a good 40-50 miles on great trails with good friends beats 25-35 of beat yourself to death and tear up the machine riding. IMO

My ride was the "A" choice. I worked on a goat birthing building all weekend at the farm. Did ride the RZR around the farm, going after a fence post.

Replaced a timing belt and all the other items that go with that job. Then flushed the tranny fluid in my wifes Accord. It was a busy weekend of wrenching on cars, but it was very productive!
