James Taylor has really captured the spirit of the event here. If you haven’t been before or don’t know what it’s about, please check out his video – which he made using his GoPro Hero 3 action camera and edited together with imovie.

Thankfully Jason Chaffin, one of the leading Pro Class riders has made this first person prospective video that shows how it’s meant to be done.
Riding on-board his 1989 Honda TRX250R with ESR 330 ki,t 40.5 carb, 5 pipe ESR Reeds and CR250 Ignition. He says “First time I raced it since I got it the work done needed a little jetting work but H and H extreme did awesome on the porting”.
Not only does this look fun, Jason had a great race and here at quadbiketrader.com, we are looking forward to seeing more videos like this.[/fusion_text]
[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” icon=”” width=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]The guy’s Cubbeez are always posting these great videos about their experiences with everyday real life ATV adventures. They are regular quadbike riders and in this video are using a 2011 Yamaha Grizzly 700 EPS and a 2011 Yamaha Kodiak 450 SE EPS.
They say: “Attempted to go for our first spring ride with the Grizzly on tracks and Kodiak on the tires. Unfortunately we ran into a lot of snow and the Grizzly had to tow the Kodiak part of the way. Have to say the tracks impressed me once again. Didn’t get into too much mud due to the ground still being frozen, and yes it was May 5th! We have now taken the tracks off for the season. Hopefully the next ride will have no snow!”
Well judging by this video they had themselves a great time!

New quadbike and ATV prototypes emerge on the internet everyday. What will the road legal quad of the future look like? What is KTM bringing out next year? Questions we ask ourself as we surf the internet for those latest models, makes and designs. Nothing particularly ground breaking has been released recently by any of the big manufacturers with only drawings and concept designs coming out in the last few years from Yamaha, Honda, Polaris and Suzuki.
Check out our list of recent prototype quadbike designs…
1. Yamaha’s 2008 Quadbike Concept
This prototype quadbike first appeared at the 2008 Yamaha Tokyo Motorshow. It turned heads but we are still waiting to see it on the street.

2. The Polaris Revolver – A Roadlegal Quadbike Concept
I wanted this to be a hit so bad because it just looks badass! That old school motorcycle design, clearly the guys at Victory Motorcycles had an input to this!? But at heart – an off-road machine. Polaris first released this concept quadbike in 2007 before they began their global dominance of the off-road UTV market and left this beauty on the scrap heap sadly.

3. The Quadbike that can Ride on Water
Developed by Gibbs Technologies in the UK, The Quadski was released in 2007 and featured a 140 bhp engine to cope with such an extraordinary feat.
4. The Segway Quad?
Like a segway but with four wheels – any point? I’m not so sure…
Utility ATVs by their very nature are normally found in commercial working environments where an agile small 4WD vehicle is required. Farmers and land owners amongst others utilise the ATV for all manner of roles, transporting rider and equipment to remote locations. Of all the different products available today it was the Yamaha Grizzly that was chosen for the most difficult and demanding of applications, with the British Army selecting the Grizzly 450. With soldiers relying on these ATV only the best equipment would do and the Grizzly delivered on every count from reliability to ease of use and performance.
Redesigned components like frame and tyres reduce weight and boost handling. This Grizzly is packed with intelligent technology including comprehensive LCD instrumentation and a 3-mode On-Command® system for fast selection between drive settings and superb traction.
There aren’t many conditions that will stop the Grizzly 450 IRS. A redesigned intuitive wet brake system even prevents clogging when mud or stones are thrown up by the wheels. Yamaha also provide a vast range of quadbike parts and accessories for the Yamaha ATV range.
