Whenever possible we tweak
the thumb throttles to a point where our quads gain enough speed to ride on top of the crust & BLAST
along at sometimes somewhat crazy speeds! LOL! The PROBLEM is that when you slow down too much or corner
too sharp , your front wheels break through the crust & the handle bars feel like the Hulk is trying
to wrench them from your grasp! WOW!!!!!!
how hard you try, you CAN'T turn & the ONLY option is to brake & slow down enough to regain control
of your trusty quad's forward direction. Alot of small trees have branches missing as each of us at least once
headed off into the underbrush as the crusty Hulk like ruts snatched control long enough to make avoiding a collision
with something impossible! By the time we rattled
into the Shamokin Walmart, our arms & shoulders are TIRED! Time for a much needed break & something hot to fuel
our bodies for the trex back to Frackville.
After refueling both our bodies with much needed
nurishment & go juice for our quads , it is time to head back to Frackville . It's usually about a 2 1/2 hour ride under
normal conditions, but who knows how long it will take , since we are going to break NEW trails in a different direction.
IF you think you ONLY got stuck on steep knarly stuff , you are WRONG!!! The photos below show you even the seemingly modest
off cambered CRUSTY trails were too much for some quads! LOL!
