It was, but most of the bikes will never see mud or a trail. They were chrome nos bottles and fancy paint jobs. Strictly show bikes. A lot of the people there said they would only vote for something that goes in the mud.

What pissed me off all weekend is these guys on these huge lifted Brutes and Cats who rode around like their bikes were the stuff but you never seen them in a mudhole. It wasn't all of them but there were a good few that did that.

Thanks fellows!

Yeah I think a 14' wide rhino with a bass system won the thing. Oh well.

Hey JRich... Did you see me out there Sat. I had on my new wheels (ss112). We were down in the highline area most of the day. I tried to meet some people from the forums but it was tough to pick out an atv in that mass confusion. Those holes just in the edges of the woods on the highlines were BAD. I didn't have many problems but my buddies couldn't make it so I ended up turning around back through the holes. lol. I also made a lap in the mudacross track. I might enter next time that seems fun.

I ended up breaking a rear cv on the way to trailer. I had a brain fart and decided to try and ramp a small dirt mound. Limped it back to the trailer. Whats stinks now is I have 3" thick of gumbo mud and clay to power wash off it.

I was there, had my hat on!! But it was sooooo crazy my group did not want to go back on saturday. We could not find anything and were kinda pissed about all the drinking. I can see having a few beers while riding but most of them were drunk! I came up on a guy going up the big hill from the powerlines who had lost an wheel rool back and slam into my foreman, he did not even see if it did anyting to mine he just looked back said sorry and kept on limping up the hill. Then right before the Gorilla team runs people were stuck in the ditch on the other side of the road and holding up traffic. One of these guys slamed into the back of my foreman. I'm so glad I put that back bumper on a few days before the event.

Anyway I was there and sorry I missed ya!!

Yea I liked how the traingle ATV group thaought they were the sh-t. They just acted like they were better than everybody else and kept blocking the powerline to talk. Only on of them I saw actually went into the water at the sand pit. I would have challenged any of them. I broke both front axels within one hour of each other and still weht through more mud then the pretty show boaters.

Yeah there was a lot of showboating going on. I hope we can go next year, we learned what not to do this year so we will know what to do next year! I think if HL is going to keep having the Mud Nat's they should have an age limit or cut out the booze. If not let the cops in to keep the peace!

Nah, thats just too much tire for my bike. I can't turn the 29.5's as well as I would like. I am starting to seriously think about the Turner gear reduction.
