Ogio Rig 9800 LE
I must be getting old, because I’m nutty for gear bags. For the last seven or eight years, I’ve spent a considerable amount of time traveling to ATV and SxS races and press events all over the country. You can imagine the colossal pain in the neck it is to drag every piece of safety gear you could ever imagine needing, especially when those trips involve flying. I’ve sprinted through many airports like OJ Simpson in the old Hertz commercials (YouTube it), dragging numerous overweight gear bags in my roost. Through those experiences, I’ve found no bag finer than an Ogio. The company has a reputation for building some of the best high-end bags on the market, and I recently got the opportunity to test the new Ogio Rig 9800 LE. [ Read Full Post ]
The ATVescape mobile app version 3 has been released, and it is pretty good.

For the last several years, I’ve owned an original pair of Klim Adrenaline boots, the predecessor to the Adrenaline GTX.

In my opinion, the new Adrenaline GTX is even better. [ Read Full Post ]

I need votes to win the 2012 Summit Photo Contest.

MSRP: $15,199 –Sunrise Yellow/Aztec Red
Over the past several months, the 2012 Kawasaki Teryx4 750 4x4 EPS LE has served me well as a steadfast adventure rig. Racking up about 300 miles on the odometer, I’ve used the Teryx4 to cart my kids and gear on several epic fishing adventures; I transported my parents and son on some outrageously technical trails that made my Mom swear at me; and I utilized the Teryx4 to handle various yard chores with my M101 military trailer in tow.

Sand-X claims that they have built The World's fastest and safest Tracked All Terrain Vehicle (T-ATV). But How safe can a vehicle that allegedly does 185 kilometers an hour (115 MPH) and accelerates to 100 km/h (62 MPH) in just 2.8 seconds actually be? The Sand-X T-ATV currently comes in two models; a militarized T-ATV1200 powered by a Rotax 4-stroke fuel-injecting 1,200cc engine and it’s slightly tamer 2-stroke 800cc engine. [ Read Full Post ]
