There’s no easy way to get to the Bar 10 Ranch in Northern Arizona. In fact, thanks to their location, the ranch is completely cut off from the rest of the state by a little crevice in their back yard known as the Grand Canyon. It's 67 miles to the nearest power line, and 80 miles of brutal trail to any town in Nevada or Utah.

Yamaha made it very clear last year that the Viking would be the first of many models designed to carry them back into the Side x Side market. The new, six seat Viking VI is the second installment on that promise and it builds on the hard-working features of the original Viking, but with upgrades and features to make it even more capable for the entire work crew. Since Texas accounts for a large percentage of Side x Side sales, many of which are the multi-passenger “crew” type vehicles, Yamaha thought it would be fitting to preview their big Viking VI where it would be right at home.

Our weekend visit to Windrock Park, just outside of Oliver Springs, TN, began on a warm, sunny day with anticipation of an exciting time ahead. It was the kind of day great for trail riding. Rain from the night before would make the trails dust-free and maybe even a little muddy in spots. The scent of the wet leaves and wild flowers was all around us as we rode to the park office, camp sites and cabins, and towards the trail head.

The stock OEM tires that came on your machine are a compromise. Manufacturers base their tire decisions on many factors such as ride quality, handling, tread patterns, thickness & overall weight, and finally, price. The problem is, the tires that work well for jobs around the farm in Iowa probably aren’t the best choice for forest riding in Oregon, the mule deer hunter in Montana, Arizona desert riding, or the Louisiana swamp rider. Just like with your boots, one size does not fit all.

We’ve bolted on all kinds of parts to our ATVs and Side x Sides through the years, usually in the quest for better handling, more power, or just to add a little bling. Sometimes the parts worked, and sometimes they didn’t, but recently we added a part that doesn’t make us go any faster or look any hotter, yet it’s one of the most well-designed and well-built accessories we’ve ever tried.
