PostSubject: How long have you been riding?   Mon Apr 01, 2013 5:25 pm

I have been riding 3 and 4-wheelers since I was 6. But I have to say, some people ride like their machine is an extension of their body and it becomes instinctual. But I ride with a few clowns on the other end of that spectrum that will likely never truly have a feel for it.

Anybody else ride with seat of the pants people?

i actually didnt start riding until i was about 20. i had an apartment then and i bought a 300ex and kept it in my buddies garage so my mom wouldnt freak out lol.
then i upgraded to a 400ex and those were just amazing back in the day, it was a brand new '99.
after alot of my riding buddies quite going i was in the woods less and started more riding on the mx track, and eventually started racing ama. thats why my name on all forums is moto92
after the 400 couldnt hang anymore i upgraded to a 450r, and later on a 2nd 450r
now those days are gone and i play in the mud. i had a rhino 660 but the engine has some troubles and needed a complete rebuild. i sold it as it was and got the 700 grizzly that i ride now. ive had it about 6 monthes now

^^Cool

I started out sharing machines with my cousins at my Grandpa's house. He had about 400 acres, about 300 of it was woods. We shared a 80cc Yamaha 4 wheeler, a 125cc Honda 4 wheeler, and later 3 different 185cc Honda 3 wheelers ranging from the ole 79 balloon tire up to an 85 with front suspension. Some of these pics

Then I bought my own at 12... Honda 81' 110cc 3 wheeler.

When I was 15... I upgraded to a 85' 250sx Honda 3 wheeler.

At 19... 88' (with 89' plastics) Honda 250r (to many mods to list) which I had clocked at 97 mph.

At 23 03' Honda Rincon 650.

At 27 07' Honda Rincon 680.

At 29 10' CanAm Outlander 800 XT DPS.

And an 09' Honda Rancher 420ATP (my wife mostly rides it...

At 30 11' Yamaha Grizzly 700 EPS.

I have been riding since 1997. Started on my 600 grizzly and now have my 2007 700, I love riding trails and wish I would have started it sooner.

I love that old beast, it has plowed every Pa. snow since 1998 and never skipped a beat, still turf the yard with it in the summer to keep her loose lol.

The first time i rode by myself i was 7 years old and it was on a honda trail 70...My first brand new motorcycle was a 1975 Yamaha DT 100 enduro and i was 12 years old. I will have to work on a list of all the motor bikes and quads i have had over the years...So i guess i have been riding pretty consistently for 43 years since i turn 50 on Tuesday.....

I started out at 5 or 6 years old on a yamaha 200 moto 4 the original one that had no suspension what so ever and still have it, them moved to a kawi 220 buyou, thats when I realized that I needed 4wd so my next bike was a suzuki 500 vinson and loved that bike I put that thing thru hell and back and she was still running but when I got my grizz I let it sit and now she wont run just needs a good going over. and now cheers my 2009 grizz 700 that is one hell of a machine.
