Howdy friends,

For those who can't get out often enough, spend a few minutes and enjoy a few highlights from a recent 5AM ride group ride with my buddies. Still loving my 2016 Rancher 4x4 DCT EPS, got over 3000 miles on it now.

Great video !
Thanks! It was a good time. I have struggled to find people as enthusiastic about riding as I am. I solo most of the time, but these two guys are going with me every Friday morning now.

Unless I'm wrong, I thought you mentioned having 3,000 miles on the Rancher. From the videos, I see you use it on blacktop, gravel, rock, etc., and curious if still running the stock tires and how are they holding up?

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you, and yes, you found the answer. :)

That's right. That was the first time I've done that, and I don't plan to do it again any time soon with these new tires.

HAHA< famous last words, "I will NOT do that again"


like I said, fun comes with costs at times, from stitches to blood shed to stories to tell down the road
hey, playing off road has its risks, most times there minor and work out for the better, but,
as safe as one wants to be, some times the cards are not under your control
one of my worst accidents, happened by just that,
a one in a million dumb luck deal , when a log wedged between top of tire and inside of fender on a jump landing, timing was perfect to send me for a hard smack and a few cart wheels , LOL
never seen the darn log, or could imagine it could kick up that way like it did, and was on a MX bike to boot, front tire was only maybe 4 inches wide?

but it left me laying in the woods for hours waiting for help to find me and get my butt out!
but all hobbies you love or enjoy, sooner or later you get back in the saddle and as time goes by, you forget them close calls and just enjoy things as always.

SO< never say never HAHA!

Good video
Thanks! I see our rides look the same.
Yeah we have some great trails here in Maine. A lot of old logging roads, old rail road beds, power line trails and great wooded trials. Seems to be an endless amount here, thank God. We even have more they are adding in! Can practically go from southern Maine to Canada.

Keep up the good videos. I gotta get a camera here soon.

And I subscribed to you on the tube. More great videos!

Thanks! I'm glad that you, like me, live in a place where you can ride and go for miles. Life is good. :)

It's sure a totally different world out in your riding area compared to where I ride up here in Canada. Don't think my tires have ever even touched sand! lol. It would sure be neat to come riding out there and experience the different terrain.
For me here up in Manitoba it'll likely only be another 2-3 months and I'll be riding around in snow, which is always a blast too!

I feel the same. I would love to experience riding in the terrain you live in up North. I enjoy trying out new areas and terrains.
