PostSubject: Trail number 9 to 12 at windrock on a KQ   Sun Jun 14, 2009 3:43 pm

Just finished up a long ride at wind rock and chose to start By haeding off on trail 2 to 16
The to the start of 9 .
Finsihed it up and went left into the bumpy stream bed of 12.
Well at the end of 12 i think its actually gets fairly hard on the atv>
I had to drive two seperate bikes up all the hard stuff. It was really rocky and steep near the end.
Pretty intense at the moment.
9 was easy and most of 12 just bumpy but the hills at the end of 12 WOW.
Go get it if you want to have some fun.

How does the side by side handle the very last hill ?
I had to cut hard left then back up , there were logs kinda stacked there it was a tight turn.
Do yall go straight up the middle.
I pre walked all of the hills and then drove my bije up and then my wifes bike.
For me the last bit was pretty intense my 750 was lifting up a wee bit and i had to go real easy on the throttle.
The rail buggies been hammering it i heard .
But ill say for sure it was fun.

So can yalls side by side go straight up the middle right of the last hill or do yall cut hard left onto the built up platform , it looked like only a rail buggy could do it.

It has been a while since I have been on any trails!

But, I don't recall having much trouble at all on that big hill, but I really don't remember which trail I took up it. I do remember having to walk about half way up to ride a friends grizzly up the hill the rest of the way after he flipped it over on top of him and was too shook up to finich the hill himself, he was going up the trail to the right and I think that is the same one I took that day.

Hey man that does not look anything like where we were . It was a huge hill and very very rocky. Big rocks like 3 feet high.Now its such a long trail .
I saw escape routes , wish i would have photoed it .
The fellow i spoke to told me it was passable but just barely.
To me it looked like the crawlers were coming in from the top and just playing briefly and then going back up.
And the wheelers were all cutting paths all around the mains .
Oh well i would not go down it on an atv and barely would go up it but thats just me.
I used low and was real careful not to punch the throttle.
I met a guy who had came down it and he said it was really rough and said it again and again.
Like , dont take your wife up there.
But that was ok since i did all the hills with both bikes while she hiked ( :
Of course i hiked umm 3 times apiece.
Ill go ride it again by my self and see if its tame.

My only thing is should i forget the atv and just go side by side ?
It seems they are safer but what happens if you roll big.
On the atv you just jump off but in the side by side you could be traped in for a long roll .
Well untill somthing stops you.
I need to ride one bad.

If you roll in a rhino, which I have not done yet, first you want to be sure and have on seat belts and then keep hands and feet inside the ride, then hang on!!

We've rode 9, 10, 12 & 13 several times in the past 3 months. The ladies in our group generally do 12 without problem... one rides a 250 sports quad and a couple rides 750 brutes. Two weeks ago, a friend and I went straight down over the big rocks. His 4wd wasn't working and got too far and couldn't back up. He wound up going down the rougher line. I haven't been able to climb those rocks for over a year now. Then a few yards below there, he had a lower arm bracket break. He was able to ride it back up the hill in 2wd with a patched A-arm, using the bypass. The last hill there has been groomed. It was also a challenge, but the difficulty has been removed.

The biggest challenge now is going up 10, which has a rock step to climb over, with some deep ruts and off cambers to negotiate. If you like a real challenge, then do it after a rain... that's a lot of fun. Trail 10 has taken it's toll on several members of my group.

Many a quad has been severely crippled by 10 & 12. They've also produced several broken bones and many more bruises.

BTW, the average sport quad rider should NOT attempt 10 and 12... JMHO.

Well ive been to Moab And climbed most of the spires you saw up to 13c.
Unfortunatly i did the hike ins on foot.
We go to Colorado soon for riding and ive climbed the diamond several times.
Anyhow i guess for me riding is like climbing.
You start out and progress from there.
The only difference is in riding atv you have a machine.

Now the machine changes the ride drasticaly.

Whats hard on an atv is like a paved road on a rail buggy

T10 has become a real challenge. T9 use to be the hard one but that has all changed. I look for them to groom T10 in the near future.
