It all started as a way to escape the daily grind by playing around at the biggest sand box in the country.  Way back in 2002, the event was known as “Goons in the Dunes” and was more of an informal gathering of friends and riding buddies than an organized factory outing.  But like so many activities that take on a life of their own, the die for a tradition had been cast.

Every so often a model comes along that just does everything right. Yamaha’s Raptor 250 is one such model and without a doubt, it is the best ATV there has ever been for budding sport riders. It’s comfortable and the ergonomics are perfect for younger, smaller riders, it’s got a great, sporty look, the motor has enough zip to keep things exciting, it’s super reliable, and it’s easy to ride.
