Went riding this past Sat. Durhamtown here in Georgia. What a great place, smooth trails, mud and swamp.

So I'm at the gas station the other day when guy behind me comes up and asks what mudinmyblood.com is (I have the sticker on my window). When I explained he laughed and said it was a great name. It sounds like another Albertan may be checking the site out soon.

I have to admit I love the name.

lol... I just wish it was as widely known as it use to be... but when you don't keep up with the ever changing game, that's what happens.

It's b/c we quit doing all the contests. And quit posting about stuff we were fixing. If someone would come back and start posting new how to's and stuff about newer machines, it would get busy again.

That's why I can't understand their reasoning. If they were so abusive to a Brute to cause it to need expensive repairs,..what the hell were they thinking going to Can Am? Of course there are those that are "operators" that do understand what's going on and they don't have the same issues as others. Maybe that's what these newbies to ATVs are reading about...lol

I think the FAD (I hate to call it that but...) has faded some. It's gotten to the point where to keep up with the big boys you better be pulling down 6 figures a year, and be ready to drop $20,000-$25,000 on a buggy build. Or more.

I think at some point we'll see an influx of the little guys again.

Jon has a good point. The market now days is geared toward the big buck machines. Of course it was the same way in 04 when I bought my Brute. People said we were crazy to pay eight grand for a bike. But once they got a taste of it, bigger and faster was the way to go. I really can't bring myself to throw down the jack they want these days though. Especially when what is coming out of the showroom doesn't considerably out perform what I have in my garage now.

I rode a new 2015 Renegade 1000 with power steering. It is a nice soft ride, but the power steering was way too soft - it felt like the front tie rods are always loose - hard to get use to, and it did not seem to have the same fun ballsy punch as my older Brute. A stage 3 clutch mod and Elka shocks added to the Brute, and you would still be cheaper costs than a Rene or Outlander. I'm not a fan of plastic parts in the clutch that comes with can am.

Well I'm going to bug one of my buddies to help get my quads back in shape. If i don't get out and ride this year I'm going to sell them. I hate to do that because I whimper every time I see a trailer load of muddy quads go by.

i envy you guys who know your stuff. I'd like playing in the garage, but I only know enough to be dangerous. Other times I just lack the physical strength to do stuff. (yeah yeah whine, whine, whine - lol)

I'm on holidays this week so I drove out out to one of my favourite places. Seeing the playground got me smiling again.

I know the feeling D. I have two machines now and one got less then 100 miles on it last year and the other got all of about 400. Shameful. I either need to get ride'n, or sell this stuff.

I mentioned this to a friend who said I'd be crazy to sell them. They're paid for and I really do like riding. He promised to go out with me this year.....lots. Fingers crossed
