Default OT - ATV Riding

Hey guys, just figured I'd post and see how many of you are into ATV riding? I was big into in the past and just recently got back into it

Here's a few shots from the past weekend with some scenic shots & action shots. I also got my GoPro HD Hero 2 yesterday so there's a brief test run today (sorry about the angle).

Shots are from Central PA, bike 2012 Yamaha YZF450R.

Enjoy!

ATVs are fun, but I don't own one. I rode an 80s Yamaha warrior 350 a few weeks ago with my friend. The thing was slow as balls, but it was still fun. I'm a bigger fan of Snowmobiling though. Much faster, smoother, and lots less dust, haha. I was at the sand dunes this past weekend and drove my friends Dune Buggy around a bit too, that was pretty fun. I just picked up a motorcycle too (somewhat related I guess). Yamaha XJ600. It's only 60hp, but it's fun to cruise around on.
If you like ATV riding, you should give snowmobiling a shot (if the weather is right by you). We get around 200" a year of snow by me, so the trails are awesome. My sled pulls a skwheelie from a dead stop without me yanking on the bars to about 45mph. Too fun, haha.

I've road a few snowmobiles and they're a lot of fun. I live in PA and the problem is we don't get enough snow to warrant the purchase of one. I do want to get out to the sand dunes sometime though, I think that would be a ton of fun and I've never road on them before. Ironically I was thinking of Michigan because its the closest place that has them LOL.

Ninjas are supposed to be fun little bikes. I have a streetfighter/naked bike myself. Not real fast, just an aircooled 600. But It's fun to work on. And I got an awesome deal on it. Haven't ridden much in the last two weeks because it's been so hot. And I will not ride without my leather jacket and my helmet.
