An adult male can weigh up to 800 pounds, and when it rears up on its hind legs it may be well over eight feet tall.

East Fort Rock Riding Area: Oregon

We visited the East Fort Rock riding area in late June as part of the Yamaha Raptor 700R press intro. We were amazed with the trail design, signage and overall makeup of this OHV destination, but somewhat disappointed we didn’t have utility quads to explore the little part of Mars we’d found in Oregon....

Conquering The Croix: St. Croix National Forest, Minnesota

After slugging 24 ounces of Mountain Dew and downing some sugar-infested donuts, the caffeine and glucose-induced alertness finally kicked in as we headed north to the St. Croix State Forest near the Minnesota and Wisconsin border. It was our first “real” ride of the season in the upper Midwest....

Vive La France: The French Alps

There is another emerging market that we haven’t paid too much attention to until recently, though. The market is Europe. Sure we’ve heard bits of news and every once in a while we’ll come across a photo of some ATV all decked out for the streets of London, but we haven’t really studied the European...

The Pride Of Pennsylvania

Riding was easy as we headed south. The first road crossing introduced me to the unique locked gates that keep trucks off these trails during the four-wheeling season. Each gate has a permanent dog-legged ATV by-pass that features a concrete slab floor. At the intersection for the Sunken Branch Cut-Off...

Quad Bike Touring: Wales

Boy, was I wrong. My goal of finding relatives got put on the back burner while I set a new world record for the most number of ATV tours taken by a single person during a single visit to Wales (any challengers?). I failed to find even one long-lost relative, but I did discover a half-dozen “quad trekking”...
