Default RZRing St Helen to Houghton LK 4/9

Did some RZRing yester day. Went from St Helen to my cottage in Houghton Lk around Houghton Lk and back…We put on 135miles of pure joy. I’ve said it before and now will confirm RZR’s are way more fun than Jeeps…

Wasn't cold at all, jeans and a hoody was all we needed. Only complaint I had of the whole trip was trying to find the rocks in st. Helen, there wasn't much for markings or any sort of signage to indicate where to go.


I've owned multiple jeeps, mostly in the 33-36" tire range, tj's, xj's, yj's, and a stock wj. The rzr's were hands down WAY more fun yesterday, they crawl, they climb, they go fast, they go thru mud, snow, sand, etc

Had a great time.

The rocks are almost to the southern border just West of the sand hills. They're down in a valley so if you guys went blasting past it would have been easy to miss them.

you know with all the money spent on the rocks and promoting it, it sure does seem like a waste without any signage. We ran into a few people that said they were looking all day and couldn't find them

There was a shotload of those in Moab. Some with dot truck tires and about 2' wider than stock. We had a guy with 3 teenagers follow us a ways into Pritchet Canyon on a Ranger that seemed to get along pretty well. He was just watching us and took the bypasses but he probably could have made a lot of it.

nope it did really well, but on the other hand it wasn't put into any postions where high centering would be a problem...it would no doubt have some issues as I high center mine all the time, but that wouldn't stop me from buying one...that thing is a blast and rides so much better than the two seater. It's alittle slower in the open flat stuff but hangs right with the two seaters in the twisties...it really is a great machine

Any idea on your gas mileage? I know its a broken record comment, but I am considering one for driving around town.
