Anyone ride 4 wheelers? - July 10, 2006, 07:51 PM

I was just curious if anyone on the board, rides or knows of anyone who rides ATVs. The reason i ask is im toying with the idea of buying a wheeler. Ive got lots of places to ride up in new york and could just stash it at my familys place. But the wheeler im lookin at is kinda pricey and im a little un sure if i want to spend that kind of money on something i wont get regular use of in the next year or so. If there were some people in the area that i could hook up with and hit the trails once in a while that might push my decision in a favorable direction. Anyone? maybe someone could point some fingers?

I have two four wheelers (both Polaris') and ride them every chance I get. One is a 2002 400 Scrambler 4x4 and the other is a 2001 500 Scrambler 4x4. Trail riding, mudding, hill climbing and hunting throughout the year ensure they get plenty of mileage and use. I'm not a big fan of living in the city, so the places I ride are usually an hour or two away from DC. One place I frequent is Taskers Gap ATV area in Edinburg, VA, lots of trails out that direction. They also have the Hatfield-McCoy trails in WV and there are a few places in Maryland.

Sweet, thanks for the input. so i see you have got scramblers. Are the areas you mentioned more suited for 4wds? Im looking at an 05 polaris predator so muddin and real tight tenchical stuff is not gonna be to much fun on a predator.

The Tasker's Gap area is suited for all kinds of bikes, there is a mix of everything out that way. I hardly ever have to lock her down in 4 wheel drive out there, usually if I do it's so I can play in some mud on the side or climb some steep shit off the trail. I see Predators, Raptors, 400exs and drit bikes out there all the time. If you are looking for long flat open trails though, there aren't many out there. Southern Maryland ATV Park has more open, flatter trails. The Hatfield-McCoy trails are insanely huge, they stretch over almost half of West Virginia. I think there are like 6 or 7 trailheads to get on the trails, what's even more cool is that on most of the trailheads there you can ride your 4 wheeler into town on the streets.

That's the one just outside Winchester right? I was talking to a couple guys about that place last time I was at Tasker's Gap, I haven't made it out there yet. How is the camping out there?
