Once again we took advantage of the new snow and made way to Leslie Creek in the mountains behind our houses in NE Washington to ride. The ride averaged 3+ feet deep and the snow has no real base so its a dig dig at full throttle the whole way. We both have 30" Mudder Inlaws with 2" Highlifter kits. Lots of people always ask why we don’t just get track and call it a day. Honestly, I like the challenge of wondering just how far we can make it and enjoy being out of the house. I’ll save the tracks for when I get a new SXS and want to cruise in comfort. My buddy had a bum axle before we left and after we cleared the Kelly Hump, his tire hit a bolder and popped the axle which cut the ride short. I took a fallen tree top through my front left fender, just missed my leg, broke my side plastics and grazed down the side of my motor. Luckily, it did no damage to the motor, and I’ll be replacing some not so cheap plastics. It’s all part of the game, got to pay to play, and we ride the hell out of our machines so they are 2500+ hard miles. On the flip side, we never got stuck and had to winch out at all that day so that was a plus lol. As for the video, I apologize in advance. I shimmed the camera mount up before I left and it still is shooting a bit too low and not far enough ahead. Also, though the camera editing program is decent, I can’t find a way to make transitions between the clips I put in there, so it jumps around a bit. It’s shot in 1080p/60fps so you can turn down the quality if need be. I’ll get it dialed in soon.
