    good ride. Def a cool experience. Only saw 3 other trikes there. A guy on a 200s, an 85 Big Red, and a guy i talked to that had a nice sx. pretty cool to do it. Its more about the mountain than about the trikes. it was packed. i'd be surprised if they don't make it a weekend event next year. i'd say it was 70% sidexsides. they are taking over. heres a little vid.

    Are you running 20:1 premix? A lot of people see the old sticker and follow directions. The problem is today's oil is way different. I would run anywhere from 30:1 to 50:1. I run 35:1 in my 250r. My buddy runs 50:1 in his. I'm sure 50 is good but I'm a little worried its not quite enough for my whiskey throttle but I would never run more than 30:1. If your fouling plugs and or have oil dripping blowing out of the muffler then the mixture is definitely too rich. Hope this info help.

    Hey guys, i really wanted to try this ride this year but it looks like they changed the ticket sales????
    The site says both am and afternoon tickets are sold out and that they changed it so u can't get passes in the parking lot any more because of traffic jams. Any one from NH have connections for 2-3 passes? Just figured i'd ask. Thanx for any info. http://mtwashingtonautoroad.com/events/nh-atv-day

    That must be fairly new because I did that ride five years ago on my Big Red, and my wife was riding the Can Am.

    It is new this year. I messaged the NHATV club and went back and forth with them on the subject. We could make a stink if we wanted, I'm game. They blame the park for excluding trikes, but I asked specifically for the literature where three wheelers are named in black and white so I could see it with my own eyes and they were not able to provide that. 9 times out of 10 there is nothing to back these claims of it being an "insurance issue". There is room and time here for us to successfully petition this if we'd like to. You boys tell me what you'd like to do. I think it's unfounded and someone's preference personally, but I don't know that for certain yet.

    I have been up every year for the last 4 years with my father and a big group on trikes. I have tickets again this year. They have always been very accommodating and friendly at the mountain. They dont enforce any rules. I'm sure it will be fine.

    You would be the expert Dan, I've never even done this ride. I don't recall them ever posting publicly about having only four wheeled vehicles in the past though, so I hope you're right.

    there is a Rokon club that rides it every year. All sorts of crazy machines that go up. Its like the Whacky Races cartoon. There is a method to their rule change though. I dont like it, and id be interested to know whats behind it.

    DENIED!! Denied at the base of the hill this year. Infuriating. NO 3 WHEELERS ON THE MOUNTAN!! I had a long long long conversation with the event director, who kept referencing some mythical insurance issue. I was very respectful, focusing more on changing the rules for next year than getting in a shouting match this year. It ruined what has been a great weekend in years past. My dad is 74 and wanted to go up for his birthday. I built him a trike for this event specifically!!! disappointing. I'm going to work on it with some calls to the event planners and to the mountain. I'll follow up if need be with the chamber of commerce, the area hotels, and area restaurants. In the meantime, please go on trip advisor and leave a bad review and reference no 3 wheelers. It should be under Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center. I'll post a link.
