Re: Red River Saturday 2/9 Ride Report

FYI, my bike is now being sold to Danny Roth. I think it fits his riding "style" better than mine.

Re: Red River Saturday 2/9 Ride Report

So after we got new tires for Becca and she was on here way.. I took the air box off the quad and this is what I found..

I pulled the plug and about 1/2 a gal of water came out.. The air filter was still dry but I didn't have much more room.

I think Nathans quad might take some work mine will be good with an oil change

For those wondering why we went in the water at all.. 99.9% of the water out there is no more then 1 foot deep. This spot was 3+ and 6 Ft round. Just out of nowhere..

Re: Red River Saturday 2/9 Ride Report

I was out there about a month ago on my quad and I hit the same hole. I was riding in 6 inches of water than all of the sudden water coming over the front racks. I made it through without an event but my quad sits taller than the warrior (I used to have a warrior).

Bill, I think you Strom would have made it through, your panniers would have floated you right through it.

Re: Red River Saturday 2/9 Ride Report

Now Bill, why couldn't you have done something like that in East Texas so that I could have seen it?

I did something similar up there on my DR350 many years ago. Mine never stopped running, but the end of the muffler was under water and it took 2 4wd 4 wheelers to pull it out.

Mine technically never stopped running while in the water. I killed the motor once I realized I was in deep enough to take in water through the top of the airbox. I just didn't want to hydro-lock that sucker and snap a rod.

Re: Red River Saturday 2/9 Ride Report

It would have been great if I'd caught the sinking ship on my helmet cam, but it was back in the truck. I did get this vid of him almost falling over while getting pulled out though.

Looks like all you men had fun.

Didn't your moms ever say to you, "why can't you just grow up"?

Photojojo mentioned the upcoming race, which along with the great weather certainly had lots of riders out there. Heck, I drove more than 500 miles just to ride 13.2 miles of dirt - and would do it again!

Because being an adult doesn't mean you have to relinquish the child inside. If the child inside is dead, then the person is dead.

That goes for us wimmenz, too.

A couple of Trials events are scheduled there over the next few months. I plan on going up to watch and video/photo one of them. Wanna go?
