1st xc race i learned alot

This was my first time racing a quad, ive have raced bikes on and off for years. I had a blast, it was a mess and im glad i was on the 700 because it let me pass so many 450s that was stuck in the deep ruts and i will say im glad i had the la8ton 11/16 bar on and the elka stage 3 on it made the difference on this day. It was a deep muddy mess and it didnt look good for me as i got a dead last start my fault i kill the engine but i did keep plowing till i finished 2 in class only after i helped the guy who beat me unstick his suzuki 450 3 different times in a uphill rut that had us bottlenecked you would have thought he would have let me by lol well i forgive him he was young and needed the win lol plus im 47 and was just having a good time , so what i learned is pro taper grips suck in mud, razer tires are tuff, i needed extra gloves and roll offs help alot, elkas are worth the money to a 47 year old body and the sway bar is great. and the next time im going to get the holeshot and let the kid worry about why hes not riding a 700xx. and thank god i wasnt on a bike it would have been alot longer day and not nearly as fun as the day i had.

you dont stop riding because your to old, you get old because you stop riding!

Congrats ssxr600. Where in Ohio are these races? If they are close, I may venture down, if you have a website for them. This not racing is killing me. I love passing everyone on the 700 as they get stuck in the mud. But I normally don't get off to help out, I give them a little bump haha. Not intentional most of the time, its just when you are riding someone's arse and they come to a sudden stop b/c of the mud, you naturally give them a little shove LOL.

2008 700xx; Power Bomb header with power core 4 exhaust, Power Programmer III, pro armor nerfs, prm products control front and rear bumpers and full skid, 10" ITP rears, ITP Baja's fronts, RZR 2's all the way around, Uni filter, 13t sprocket, CCP steering Damper, DS450 shock swap, Dual Gasser Throttle, bar risers and Moose barkBusters. 730XX kit plus other engine mods!

ssxr600,
True sportsmanship!!
I would have done the same thing. In this time of "winning is everything" regardless of who or what gets in your way, a breath of fresh air when someone cares enough about someone besides themselves to help. My hats off to you.
