A big hello from Canada eh!!

Whats up people?? I'm just sayin hi as the computer sugested lol. I am a new owner of a Monster edition Teryx. I traded a project car straight to the dealer for the Teryx and the mods have started already haha. I had them remove the god awful (just my opinion) green cage and throw a black one on.

I am far from new to motorsports but this side by side is a first for me. I have built my own racing quads over the past few years and need a change of pace as the years pass by. I have fully built race quads, a 4X4 quad and a YJ I am working on right now, and can't forget the Cummins. I am a welder by trade and do alot of fabrication and I will be doing a full suspension and system and cage this winter if it is too cold to ride lol. Enough rambling, so "HI!!!"

Chris

I think Junior is from there too.

I was in Conklin last month doing some consulting. That was a couple weeks before all the bears were culled. Are things still crazy in Fort McM or did the mega projects put on hold slow the pace down a bit.

I grew up very close to there and used to ride right from my house to the Brule sand dunes, lots of times. Brule was my primary winter riding area, as it never seemed to get snow covered for long. I ride/rode the foothills/Rockys from Grande Cache to Nordegg in the summers. Mountain Park used to be awesome. There is a coal mine there now.

There is supposed be be a big sand area by Fort McM. I have seen pictures of quads pulling sea-doos on trailers into there. Never been though.

Yeah it is called six lakes area and it is pretty cool but it is quite a trek in there and you have to bring so much fuel, not bad for a side by side but a racing quad is rough bringing extra fuel lol. I am headed up there as soon as I pick the Teryx up.
