If you read that spec sheet, that one for $449 comes with the Magellan Topo 3D map software. Ken, Where did you find this information? The Magellan web site doesn't show much, and everything I've read makes it look like the Topo software is extra. I'm ready to send the Vista packing, just waiting f...

If it's on the sideway....new tire. What's the trail repair for a sidewall? After what I went through breaking this one down it's doubtful I'd be able to break the bead on the trail and be able to get a large temporary patch inside. I need to get me one of those mini spares that all the new cars co...

Hard enough walking through, no way you could walk, the place was crowded as I've ever seen it. I'll never go there again during the fall school break.

I'll plug it, thanks Miyagi!

Patch or Plug?

Looks like last trip I picked up a nail in my right rear. I've was in Di$neyland all week and came home today to find her flat. I'd really like to put on some new radials, but I was in Di$neyland all week. So, should I plug or just put in a patch? In all my miles I've never had a flat on a quad. Wit...

Me Too. Here I thought I was a good customer. I wait for the sales, take advantage of the zero financing and always redeem my rebates. They hate me!

Sorry about your loss Ken. I lived it this past summer. We took a 1 month family vacation. Stops in Zion, Bryce Canyon, Moab, St. Louis, Mt Rushmore, and Yellowstone. My oldest daughter had gone to DC before we left and had about 300 pics from her trip as well. Everything was working fine when I tur...

Also...you have to make a "C" to cross.....

We were 1/2 way before common sense took hold. We could see there was no way going straight through, looks like the big 4x4's have dug a pretty good size hole right in the middle.

A friend took his Suzuki Twin Peaks in for the recall and got it done right away. He was told they didn't have parts for the Kawaski, but did for the Suzuki. Aren't they the same bike, built by Kawasaki and badged Suzuki? I'm curious, what dealership did he take it to? It was Good Times in Sacramen...

Re: New memeber checking in

Awesome. You can check Dreamflows to find the levels in advance...about 125 is MAX for a quad to cross. And let us know when you're going back to the Fordyce...maybe some of us can go. Thanks Ken. I called a friend at PG&E before we left. He'd flown into Fordyce a week earlier and said the flows we...

They said they could not get parts and had no idea when the parts would be available :evil: A friend took his Suzuki Twin Peaks in for the recall and got it done right away...

New memeber checking in

Hi all, I just signed in and really enjoy the site. As Dennis mentioned lots of local information and details. I live in Grass Valley and have been riding the Northern Sierras for years. I just popped for a new Suzuki and so far have been very pleased with it. Went up and ran Fordyce to the first cr...

Now I know what to do with my friends without atv's. When I invite them and they say they don't have anything to ride, I'll just say, walk along next to me and hold me when I get scared.
