I was less than 100 yards into the RockHouse loop of the world famous Hatfield-McCoy system and I already knew it was going to be a great day. Light overnight rain had erased any dust and a few low areas of the trail even held small pools of water to splash through. Early fall in the mountains of West Virginia meant the leaves were just beginning to turn, but the temperature was also cool and it was a perfect day for riding. Today I would be testing Honda’s new FourTrax Foreman Rubicon 4x4. In every way I felt right at home.

If there is one product that can make any Side x Side more functional, it is a quality mirror kit. Whether you drive a sporty, desert taming model, or a hard working machine on the job site or farm, it’s much more difficult to see behind you when strapped into the seat of a Side x Side than it is in your truck. This is especially true if you wear a helmet like we always do. There are plenty of mirror kits on the market, but the hands down best kit we’ve found is the PURSUIT mirror by Seizmik. We’ve tried other mirror kits, but none are nearly as nice as this.

One would be hard pressed to argue that the knife is nothing less than the most important tool ever developed. With our original crude knives hewn from a sharp rock, then later bone, copper, and finally the specialty metals or even composite materials of today we’ve gone from hunters on the savannah, to farmers, and finally to modern man. Still, the knife of today would easily be recognized by our ancestors despite its continual evolution. It has been and always shall be the most basic yet highly functional of tools.

Even when part of a large group, riding is primarily a solo adventure.  There are times we really appreciate the quiet shelter of our helmet while the machine beneath us carries us far from everyday life and to a place that recharges ones soul.  Anyone who has spent much time on the trails knows this feeling well.  At other times though we want to share the adventure with our riding buddies or just talk about whatever we find along the trail, but unless you’ve got a helmet communication system you’re out of luck.
