I posted this on another fourm, just want to hear what you guys think...






OK I know I might start some controversy here but I'm sick of this crap.

"Jumps on soapbox"

U ppl with the utility quads If someone w/ a sport quad is behind you Please have the courtesy & presence of mind to know what the Hell is happening Behind you & move to the right when someone is trying to pass!!!! It's not to hard ppl...............

2nd This happen to a fellow quad rider 2 seasons ago & last year I ran in to 3 different groups 3 separate times.......

My bud was coming around a corner some beer-swilling Sob on a Uit is on the wrong side of the trail coming out of a corner, "Wack" yfz450 broken tie rod, and both riders thrown...
Both ok thank god, now I was not their but I could have MNRap post the details of what happen...

This happened Saterday....

We ride the Clark Co trail system about 2 to 3 times a month when they are open, Today was opener for us & a 1st, To try out 2 new quads, @ about the end of the day & a ride of about 120 miles, we catch up to a group of ppl on Uti's, theirs about 6 to 8 ppl a few women & kid's, I have a band new kfx450 BigSled w/ a 660Raptor MNRap has a yfz450 w/ pipe K&N ect ect & is VERY LOAD... U know when we R Behind you... Now by Know means do I roost pass ppl... especially kid's & chick's (Well if ur in my group you might eat a little mud/sand now & then hehe) So I start to pass them 1 by 1, we get by the group & about 2miles down the trail we stop @ a T, Are quads right nex to each other. MNRap goes to take a piss, get's back on his quad, we bs for a min or 2 he fires up his quad, & say's O $hit, I look up & here come's a guy on a polaris 500 Uti, doing like 30 & just misses MNRap & myself, shooting the small gap that was between us, & RUN'S OVER, umm you know what they use to post a stop sigh, next was a 4in around tree & some brush.. & Ends up about 15yards in the woods, we were thinking that he had a problem w/ his throttle.. The guy gets tossed off & into a tree, gets up & heads toward me, foaming @ the mouth.. & Starts freaking out about that I spit rocks @ his wife & hurt her when we passed.. Now again by NO means did I try or mean to... (If I did you would know it) This guy starts call me this & that & pushes me wanting, to me witch looks like to fight..(Iam in full riding gear, he has an open face helmet on, I was like throw hehe) A few min's of BS go by & he saying wait till my buddies get here, I want your plate # call the dnr I want them here now bla, bla, bla, His wife shows up.. & 1 of his buddies & like I was saying, me & the sob were about to throw a few.. When MNRap start's to ask her if she was ok, which after asking about 4 or 5 times & see's what's going on, she's like ya you guys just scared me. So now that I'm off my quad & in this guys face I notice something........... Anyone want to guess what?????.

Alcohol, Beer....

Now I'm all about having a good time but this $hit has to stop!!!!

Some of these groups of Uti's I see pulled over on the side of the trail & all w/ beers in their hand is just BS!!!! Their are Way 2 many ppl out on the trails to be drinking. Now I know that some of you will say, like the drunk SOB that "you guys are doing 90mph & to slow down" I have been riding since I was 9, & very capable of riding my machine to my ability SOBER..............

It's you drunk SOB'S on the wrong side of the trail in a turn that we have to watch out for.

As soon as his wife & buddy seen that we new he & both of them had been drinking they changed their tune...even to the point that the buddy was down on 1 knee apologizing Like 30x & the idiot that went in the trees was just about begging us to forget the whole thing..............

If I again run a crossed you _________<--insert WI dnr tag. (MNrap has that info. I will post later)
& Find your pathetic Butt on the trail with a wif of beer on U, I'm calling the cops myself & that goes for any of you other ppl that like to Drink & Ride I don't care if it's your wife/kids/mommy or whoever is around.....

This BS Has to stop!!!!

Right on! I feel the same way.. They actually closed down one of the best places in south eastern KY because so many people where dying because of alcohol with atv's.. Oh well.. Maybe they will learn.. Doubtful.

This was a 40 something punk with liquor doing all the talking.. Then to top it off he intentially tried to run over Butcher and I while we were sitting along side the trail not even moving. He aimed for us and for at least 50 yards he was zeroing in on his target. Fortunately I was able to move out of the way quick enough and not get hit.

I spoke to the local sherrif and he will be charged soon for reckless driving. He left all the evidence (smashed trail sign, broken trees and tracks) at the scene. unfortunately we decided not to leave him there with the evidence.


BTW Wisconsin DNR ATV # 2030895 ..

Yeah i have the same problem with the rhinos,etc and the people who ride on in the rhinos they have a place to hold there beer and drive, ive seen countless injuries from drinking and driving quads,rhinos,etc.Im with you on that one usually most of the people i pass are nice about it but there are some there to sight see its not my fault there there to go 5mph and i want to push the limits of the trails but we all have our diffrent prefrences of riding styles just long as the beer is kept at the camp site.

I think people shouldn't even be able to ride if they have drunk alcohol.

Ok, I can see where you are coming from its a total b**ch to get stuck behind someone. In addition to my 450, I have a ute but its a can am 800, uss. giving it hell, I accually got stuck behind some sport quads once
- some goofs on a sight seeing mission - I went off the trail to pass them and sprayed them with mud
. I've been stuck behind utes more though. So anybody riding like a grandma should shove out of the way. The beer- I won't ride having more than 2- same as I won't drive. Thanks for making the thread so I could vent too.

i agree if you gotta drink to have fun riding then youre doing something wrong. theres a difference between goin out with some buddies to a great view and knockin a couple back but if youre too drunk to even think rationally how are you going to act and ride rationally. people in nh get killed every year on sleds goin out piss drunk doin a buck down a trail where where a pro would be doin 60 and they crash and burn. its gotta stop...
