After we were all good and tired we took a short break. Dave had a couple of trails he was going to lead us on.
They were going to be mild he said but I know we can always find something to have some fun on along the way.
We weren’t too many miles into the trip when I was right; there was a nice little jump on one of the connecting
trails. Sure enough Jeff and Wayne had to try it out. Wayne won this battle.Dave took us on a part of the trail he took the Fishers ATV TV crew on where Bruce rolled.As it turns out Wayne was showing off going downhill and ended up rolling his quad on its side. Fortunately it was
a slow motion roll with no harm to him or his machine.Next we stopped at an old grave site for the Haught family from the 1800’s.The views of the surrounding mountains in this area were absolutely beautiful.You can even see the new Zane Grey cabin nestled in the trees. His original cabin was up further towards the
base of the mountain which unfortunately burned down in the Dude fire many years ago.What a beautiful way to end our trip with these gorgeous views. I guess we better start heading back to camp
as it won’t be long before it is dark.Overall for the first trip out on a tough rock crawling trail I would have to say the DWT MOAPA tires worked great.
The traction was outstanding on the boulders. The ride was smooth and predictable on hard pack as well.
They did seem like they were louder than some of the similar tires on the hard forest service roads but I
personally do not ride on smooth roads if I can help it. We will have to see how they hold up for the long term.
Initially I would give them a thumbs up.
Remember to ride within your comfort zone and always wear your safety gear. Most of all have fun on whatever
