You can read our first impressions article below, but we wanted to see what the RMAX2 1000 was all about. In this review video

    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

    Thoughts On The 2021 Yamaha Wolverine RMAX4

    We made no effort to hide how excited we were to see the introduction of Yamaha's Wovlerine RMAX2 and RMAX4 1000 several months ago. We pulled no punches about the fact this might very well be the Yamaha Wolverine we have been waiting for from its 1000 class engine to its suspension travel numbers. We have since seen several walk-around videos and read initial reviews from multiple friends and sources we trust in the industry that have 99-percent positive things to say. We have drooled at the thought

    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
