I WENT RIDING SAT. AT A PLACE CALLED SAUDI ARABIA IT'S IN SC
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

Ranchers are tough bikes, no doubt about it. If you invested in some tires, it would make all the difference in the world I bet. Some inexpensive 27in Mudbugs will help a lot, are cheap, and dont require a lift or anything.

with some good mud tires, you wouldn't of had a problem in that hole. Ranchers are a good bike though.

Sometimes if you creep slowly through the holes you can can make it further. Just keep your tires spinning fast enough to keep you momentum up and tires clear.
