View Full Version : Vintage quadding

05-11-2014, 05:57 PM
Well me and Atoyot decided we should do some quadding yesterday because it wasn't really dingy weather.

Unloaded at Kevs and off we went, ran Grimms played around in the powerlines, then headed to Jimberger. Took a look at the creek and decided to just drop in through there, was easy dropping in and quite the challenge getting up the other side.

Chris ended up getting a flat front tire somewhere along the way and his bike started to run like crap, as we were heading over to Rockwell my bike started spitting and sputting too then died. So we pushed it back to a good hiding spot and winched it up into some thick forest.

So now we're up at the top of Rockwell with no phones and its starting to get late, ended up doubling back to Kevsoh yeah, we planned on winching our quads down to the creek but my quad is the only one with a winch, so Chris had to do a death ride down with me holding onto the back skiing down , Chris bike stalled and wouldn't start at one point, got it going with a good downhill bumpstart. Got to Kevs made some calls and good buddy Greg to the rescue.

Went through the roadblock telling the cops what we were doing, just waved us through. Got to the gate and it was open. So just drove the dually up, Got a ride with Greg to the quad, took it out of the bush and got towed to my Dodge, loaded up and back down we went. Waved at the cops and said thanks got my quad back.

Tried it again this morning still no spark

heres a couple pics from the recovery

Greg made a quick attempt at panty remover just for the fun of it, but its pretty chewed up now
