Default Heading UP this weekend

My son and I are bringing my grandson UP for his first ride this weekend. He's 9. I know we will have to trailer out but no big deal.

I'm really excited to see if he like it as much as his dad and me. 3 generations out together......

This could end up costing me a lot of money!!!!!

Hey Wink! My neighbor rode out of the condos in Brevort and said the trails were in suprisingly great condition. Enjoy those great memories you will be making!

I rode out of Brevort all last weekend and everything was good to go.

Had a great ride and my grandson loved it. His suit worked out great but he does need better boots and we either have to get him mittens with pockets for warmers or we have to put heated grips on the backrest. We had muffs on them but they still are just plain cold to the touch.

Rode out of Brevort and headed up towards Hulbert. He was having a hard time keeping his feet warm so we headed back. Got to the Buckhorn and he was complaining of stomach cramps. I rode back to Brevort, got the truck and trailer and picked my son and him up. Think it was possible too much excitement.

I'm sure the next trip will be even better.

Thanks to the groomer guys for giving us great trails for his first ride!!!!

Hey Wink, we used heated glove liners for my daughter when she was riding with us, just wired them to the battery with an inline fuse. Has a control on a lanyard. I still have them if you'd like to try them next year.

Thanks for the offer. Never heard of the heated liners. Can you give me a a name brand or where you got them so I can research them a little?

Thanks again,
Wink
