The closest thing to you for riding a sport machine would be Tri-County Pit between Faribault and Northfield.

My currnet ride wouldn't do very well off-road. grin

the majority ride utes, but there are a few sport guys in here.

One option that I would recommend if you're interested in trails is Nemadji State Forest. There's an abundance of trails that are great for a sport machine with many of them being snowmobile trails in the winter.

be sure to check the DNR site for the most current and up-to-date trail closings.

I just sold my Z400 about a year ago. I loved that little thing, and I really miss it. I just didn't use it enough anymore, then I bought a Sportsman for ice fishing. The wife couldn't understand why I needed 2 quads. That landed the Z on the hit list.

Me and some guys went out to the Pike National Forest (Colorado Springs area) a couple years ago and had a blast on our little sport quads. Every guy should do something like that at least once before they're too old and have too much responsibility. The trails out there were rediculous!

general andrews state forest is a good time on a sport quad nice and sandy with no rock gets wooped out sometimes which is fun but slows you down a bit

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
