Now that this weather is really starting to suck and it is cold and rainy almost every day, does anyone ride quads or dirt bikes? This is prime weather for some dirt riding. If so where and what do you ride?
Yamaha TW 200. Big a$$ rear tire to get you through the muck, street leagal enables you to ride dirt roads legally. I used to ride off road every day when I was a kid, but now-a-days I have no idea of any good places to go without packing up the truck and traking a trip. I would be interested in taking a group ride through the woods with others though.
The one I have is blue, but this give you an idea.
Since I have owned several dirt bike I can tell you that this thing goes trough the muck like no other machine I have ever ridden, and you can even ride it on the road. Not very fast, but fast enough in the woods and it will fly on twisty raods due to it's sub 200lb weight.
