    Can Am Maverick MAX X RS Turbo RR With Smart-Shox Review- Dirt TRAX

    For model year 2022 Can-Am debuted its Smart-SHOX technology on the Maverick X3 family. Competing directly with the Polaris DYNAMIX Live Valve system, Smart-SHOX dynamically controls the shocks' dampening on the fly based upon the terrain, but with one big difference: rebound control. Yes, Smart-SHOX controls both compression and rebound, which at the time (Polaris DYNAMIX now has this also), was unique. Our friends at Dirt TRAX received a Smart-SHOX Maverick X3 MAX model and did a review video on

It is widely considered the most brutal race one-day race in the World. King Of The Hammers takes place every year in Johnson

    Adventure Guide- Brimstone Recreation & Windrock Park, TN

    Tennessee is home to some outstanding places to ride (and music of course), but it is not very close to many of us! Making the long drive to that part of the country must be rewarded with a bunch of trail-miles. The good news is, with a little planning, that is exactly what you will get. Brimstone Recreation and WindRock Park are a mere 48 measly miles apart, and, combined, they offer 92,000 acres and 600 miles of trails. That makes for a large area to explore—large enough to require more than o

    In front of you is a choice. You can go left, right, forward, or backward because you are at a crossroads. Crossroads are a good thing in life. Crossroads, many times are the genesis of amazing things such as life-changing decisions, a “make it happen moment”, and, as legend has it, the birth of blues music. Nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado lies one such crossroad, where the off-road-loving-type find a small piece of heaven right here on earth. If you have never been to this crossroad, the
