View Full Version : muddy weekend w/ lots of broken machines

10-20-2002, 01:16 PM
TRIKE and Dogger made the trip to NY again.We only had about 2 miles of trails to ride on (due to hunting season) and my backyard.We had about 4 inches of rain the past week.The woods was filled with huge puddles and deep mud which made all the slimy rocks alot more fun.My weekend started out bad.I open my garage friday after work to see my YTM front fender shattered by a 2x6 that fell on it.New one on the way from Yamaha already.TRIKE ,Gman and myself did a nite ride on friday for about 2 hrs.On the way back to G's house TRIKE's sprocket hit a rock and bent it enuff to throw the chain off and break the case and bent the shift shaft.The Z400 had to be towed out by GMANs Prairie, damn susucki's lmao
We straightened the sprocket out and patched the case with ShoeGoo(amazing stuff) so we could ride on saturday.
Saturday morning Dogger showed up w/o warning lol with his 350x.We got about 200 feet from my house and the exaust bracket on the 350x broke off the pipe.TRIKE did a superb weld job and we were back out on the trail.We only stayed out for an hour and then went back to my house to play in the yard.I rolled the blaster over on me a few times playin around trying to climb trees(have pics).GMAN flipped the prairie over for the first time and crushed the front rack.While we were regrouping at my house Dogger was testing his wheelie skills and went over and broke his grab bar and rebent the back half of the X.After that we went to my trials coarse to seperate the men from the boys.Just getting there was rough.GMANS prairie and Alex's 700 sportsman were the only 2 machines that didnt have a problem with the mud.The trials coarse was wet and slippery.GMAN and TRIKE each did a lap,I did 3.On the way back to my house Dogger and me got stuck in the mud about every 10 feet no thanx to the 4x4's that were with us churning it up.On the way out Alex,TRIKE and me managed to roll our machines over on a nasty rock infested uphill.TRIKE bent his plastic up and broke his clutch perchWhen we got back to my house Dogger wanted to compare the X to a Tri-Z so i rolled out the red Z.We drag raced across my yard (150 feet)a few times.Whoever got the better start won.Then GMAN jumped on the X and we went a few more times.He got me 1 time.On one run I had enuff time to look over at G and give him the (your #1 sign)lol.After that Dogger took a ride on my Z and I think he likes it :) Saturday nite Dogger headed home and TRIKE,GMAN,Mrs GMAN,and me went out and had a few too many.
TRIKE just left for home so I'm goin on the roof to nail some shingles.
C ya's in chat.I will have a bunch of digital pics later today or tomorrow.

But TRIKE owed us a visit and this was the only weekend that he could come.No one knew Dogger was coming until he showed up at my house Saturday morning.
GMAN and me talked about it and decided we couldnt have 20+ ATV's riding in my yard.We couldnt ride on our usual 30 miles of trails b/c of Bow season.The few trails we did ride on,we werent supposed to be on anyways.I have permission to ride there but cant bring any guests,good thing the owner wasnt around.
Sorry if we pissed anyone off.There will definately be a next time.Possibly a ride this winter and springtime.
Anyone wanting to give me a piece of thier mind can do so @ kxkid@warwick.net :)
