So latest trip to RCH. I love that place but this trip turned out to be a turd. Only road 60 miles or so and 20 of that was limping home on a flat tire. THANKS JAY!!!!


He looks innocent enough. Getting ready to ride

Bobby ready to go. Note the properly inflated tires under him

Bobby having a little fun. Jay puts and end to that soon enough


Jay has no air in his tires!! Whats that Jay? No 3psi is not enough Dumb A$$

No Jay your #1

We did this X 25

It doesn't seem to be holding much air


Okay Jay I'm sorry about the Dumb A$$ crack I got you an ice cream. Yes your still #1

Much cussing and stopping 22 odd miles later we made it back to RCH. The culprit was a gash in the sidewall that went up under the bead. 8 ply Grim Reapers with only 100 odd miles on them. So we cut our trip short by two days and went home. Sux Thanks Jay Dumb A$$!!!!!!!!!! We will send you photos of our next trip.

Thats for sure, I believe in at least 6 to 8 lbs, I have seen to many tires pinched againist the wheel breaking a sidewall or the bead poping away from the wheel. Did you try & buy a tire down there, I know it would be hard to match
A lesson to remember in the future. I think I'LL check my PSI havn't done this in awhile.

To bad about you guys loosing 2 days of riding. Crying or Very sad It's hard enought to get a trip together

Okay Jay does not come by the site often. So to assure he gets the proper beating he deserves I e-mailed him a direct link.

You there Jay??

So far he has not e-mailed me back. Probably still looking for a tire gage.



For thous that do not know me so well. I'm really not a meanie ( Gump will attest to this ) Jay just has it coming. I owe him

sometimes shit happens. I wasnt 10 miles into our first day at Maine when I knocked a hole in one of my new bighorns. I was sworn to secrecy about it so we wouldnt have to listen to a certain member who has bad luck with bighorns. I did have mine inflated to 7.5 pounds but sometime its just your time

Yeah Grizz, I think that one took 6 plugs to fix..the one at Maine only took 4 but it took a day to get it to stop leaking. This after the friendly neighbor Can Am dealer told me he could put a plug patch in the tire but wouldnt do it because it might blow out and cause a wreck. Which reminds me...I was gonna go to Yellowbook.com and give him a poor customer service rating Twisted Evil

actually it makes me feel good to know that I ride with almost as much reckless abandon as you do and that at my advancing age I'm still able to ruin a perfectly good tire with a 600 lb atv Smile

Yeah Grizz after ruining 2 terracross radials I decided to move to bighorns. I gave Jo the terracross tires for her kodiak and she ran them for over 4000 miles without a problem. So much like someone else on this website (Gump) Its not the tires but the guy controlling the vehicle thats the cause of the tire problems Smile

Another note i think i rode with you 3 times and i think yours or your wifes quad were trailered back to the lodge. No one has towed my rzr back. You have a worse track record for break downs then me. Its an atv they take a beating and shit happens. So you can drop the bashing of me any time now
