Bosski 1600 AL ATV Wagon
ATV and UTV camping, hunting and fishing adventures off the beaten path are an exciting and relaxing way to unplug from the world and reboot your brain. The racks or beds on these machines generally get the job done for adventures close to home that don’t require hundreds of pounds of supplies. To reach some of the best destinations, however, additional provisions to supplement days of travel are just too much to handle without a capable trailer to help transport the cargo. The Bosski 1600 AL ATV Wagon is large, well built, has theability to haul over 1,200 pounds of cargo into the backcountry, and is quite possibly the best adventure trailer on the market.

Let’s face the facts. There are a lot of idiots out there that ride ATV’s in unsafe and/or illegal manners; like the guy in this animated GIF on a Yamaha Banshee. I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer, but whether riding epic trails on the farm or the streets of Philly, helmets really do saves lives.

Back in the summer of 2006, I was one of the first people in the world to ride the completely redesigned 2007 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4x4 EPS. I logged several hundred miles in the mountains of Montana aboard that Grizzly and instantly fell in love with it.

Over the next few years, the rest of the manufacturers eventually caught up, incorporating their own version of EPS. [ Read Full Post ]
When it comes time to taking your quad on an adventure, the ability to pack as much gear and supplies on board as possible should be at the top of your list. The weather in Pennsylvania always seems to be sketchy. So, to keep our product reviews fresh, when we get a good stretch of weather, I gather up my crew of test monkeys and we hit the trails for the day to gather as much footage as we can. There is no such thing as stopping for lunch, and we’re deep enough into the bush that heading back to the truck to grab additional gear is impractical. So, if there’s a chance I need it, I bring it along. [ Read Full Post ]
The only things hotter than this summer’s weather are the new Kymco products I got to ride on the property of Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC last week. Kymco, a Taiwanese ATV manufacturer, is a relative newcomer to the UTV and SxS market in comparison to larger manufacturers like Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Polaris, Arctic Cat, and Can Am. However, in recent years, Kymco has shown they are serious about wanting a piece of the North American off-road market. In fact, several manufacturers, including some high-end European motorcycle manufacturers, have been selling rebadged Kymco’s as their own brand for years. [ Read Full Post ]
A Special Operations Forces soldier mans a MK-47 grenade launcher mounted on a Polaris MV700 during an exercise in Iraq. The MK-47 is a belt-fed automatic launcher that fires 40 mm high explosive grenades at a rate of 225-300 rounds a minute out to a range of 2.2 km. [ Read Full Post ]
