My New ATV

Recommended Posts

Well I bought a New ATV. I have had little prior experience with ATV's. This is the First one I have owned.

I had to move to Nebraska From Minnesota due to my job. I will admit the last 3 years I could not make up my mind to buy a ATV or a snowmobile for Icefishing in Minnesota.

The Move to Nebraska pretty much made the decision for me. I am actually looking forward to the Fun I will have through the season with the ATV. Here are a Few Pics.

Thank You,

Well I am Wyoming Bound, when I am done with this project. LOL So maybe I'll be looking for a snowmobile after all.

I will say though, I miss Minnesota. Wyoming is Looking Better then where i am at. If I can get in or near the Mountains I will be happy.

What is it you do for work?

Machining, welding, quality control, sheet metal fab...pretty much anything manufacturing related. I along with some guys from the shop constantly dream of moving to the Black hills or wyoming!!!

The company i am working for just opened a branch office in Cheyenne, and opening another in Rapid City, I work for a commercial General Contractor.

Work is Going very good out there. but don't expect to get wages like you do in Mlps/St.Paul area.

I was 13 years Union Carpenter Union. made my way to Supt. when the slow down hit, I was laid off. I started interviewing with Companies out West, and so here I am.

So I am happy. Gonna go out and coyote Hunt this weekend, using the ATV to do so.

Yep it is a 450, At this point being new to ATV's i didn't want a big machine. Just something to Haul Otter Lodge. Do a little trail riding, plow some snow. and do some hunting with.

I knew i didn't want to put tracks on it. ( although that is cool Looking) Figured if i need to get thru snow that i can't with the Wheeler, i will get a Snowmobile.

Time will tell i guess.

Once those safety stickers are off, the thing will be invisable!!! SWEET looking machine.

Really it would not matter what color you got cause I'd never be able to see you either way, cause you will be far behind!!!!!!

I really like this size wheeler for getting around in the woods. Congratulations on your purchase LurkerNLeever. You made a great choice. I have the same machine and really like it. The thing hauls deer, firewood, my fish houses, and me around the lakes and woods. With chains on all four I have been able to get around in some pretty deep snow and slush. I have loaded mine down with guys, gear, trailer and deer and it pulls just fine up hills and down. With the winch I was able to pull out a neighbor's stuck Suburban after chaining the back of the wheeler to a stump. It starts good in the cold too. From what I have experienced so far Yamaha machines are tough and reliable. You won't regret your purchase for a minute!

Nothing wrong with a smaller wheeler like that.

jltimm... Where did I say there was SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT??? Don't put words in my mouth!!!

I don't think jltimm's post was meant to sound that way. I think he was agreeing with you.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
