WE're BAAAAAACK!

Well people, TTH2 is over and what a great time. We put on over 128 miles Saturday w the only problem being one flat tire. Total of 11 riders for the weekend down from last year but the quality of the ride was much better than last year.

A couple of things we learned from this years ride.
Banshee's need front sproket nuts to move
2 ply tires wont last at Tug Hill
Gatorade is explosive
Grizzly 660's go 62 MPH... YFZ's go a lot faster than that
Lewis County Sheriffs dont know the difference between YFZ's and Cannondales
Shift Levers are needed to operate ATV's at High Speeds
40 degrees is no fun to be sleeping in tents
and Cell phones dont work well w Gatorade.


I'm sure some of the other guys will add to this list, but I just want to say again... GREAT RIDE, no a$$holes and everyone had some great laughs around the bon fire.

Nerf bars make a good grab point for flipping quads back over.
Murphy's Law does apply to ATVing.

Snowmobile maps cover more trails than the ATV maps. Keep a spare light for when your lost in the woods at nite!! Banshees get thru mud better w/o that front sprocket nut, as long as you have a 4X4 and a tow rope!

Wet, cold and 5th gear pinned is 10X more fun then lost, sitting on the side of the road watching 2 children fight.
Skid plates are GOOD!!
Roost is bad...
Trees really do jump out in front of you.
