Well, took it up to twin lakes on the 50" trails. Was a blast till I hooked a root with the pass side ft and bent the tie rod! Oh did I mention I was 3-4 miles in

Looks like the wheel spacers will come off for those trails

if you were at cedar creek i can understand why you hit something. i think there tape measure was broken when they measured 50" in some places. i have seen alot of quads get broken over there from catching trees. one more reason i like dirtbikes, you only have to worry about a foot and a half, everything else is just a bonus!
