CURT ROCKERBALL REVIEW – BEST TOOL FOR TOWING

Off-road adventures aren’t what they used to be.  Gone are the days of just throwing dirt bikes in a pickup for a weekend getaway.  Today, it’s all about families exploring nature together.  Side-by-sides, particularly those with four seats, are the perfect family vehicle for these adventures.  But with bigger vehicles comes the need for bigger trailers, and that’s where the Curt Rockerball comes in. THE TOW KINGS CURT MFG isn’t just a company that makes ... Read more

SAFE TRAVEL

If you’ve ever seen an ATV or UTV unload itself on the highway, you know the carnage is truly a sight to behold.  We’ve seen it happen, and it would make Mr. Mayhem from the insurance commercials proud.   What’s even more concerning is the danger to others on the road.  Whether you’re off for a day on the dunes or trails, heading north to the deer camp, or hauling to the construction site, trailering your ...

WILDLIFE REFUGE CABINS REVIEW

Michigan has more miles of ORV trail than you could explore in your lifetime. By the States own numbers, almost 6000 miles of designated ORV trails and routes, and with the addition of countless interwoven two-tracks meandering through the woods, it’s unlikely anybody really knows the total number. Without a doubt, the one must-do mile of trail every ORV rider needs to experience runs right through the front yard of Wildlife Refuge Cabins. We named ... Read more

TUFFY SECURITY LOCKBOX REVIEW

Whether in the bed, on a trailer behind, or tossed into the seat next to you, hauling your gear is what you bought a truck for. The problem is, it’s not what one would call organized by any standard, and there are some things you don’t want wandering eyes to see. This is especially true during hunting season when we’ve often got a gun case in the back. Luckily, we’ve found an excellent solution to ... Read more

CURT ECHO BRAKE CONTROLLER – Product Review

Visit any riding area and it quickly becomes evident that Side by Sides are a major factor in off-road recreation, and for good reason. They’re easier to drive than a dirt bike or ATV, you can share the ride and trail exploration with a companion, and they’re just plain fun! The downside is they are also much larger than most other off-road vehicles, with some nearly the size of a Jeep Wrangler, and that means ... Read more

TREK THE MIGHTY MAC

St. Ignace is the Gateway to the North and the jumping off point for a lifetime of adventure.  Through the centuries it has been under the domain of at least three different countries and was inhabited by Native Americans who called the area home long before French explorers and fur traders arrived.  Today it’s a tourist town in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, with shops, restaurants, and cozy hotels, all with a great view of the lake ...

The Polaris Adventures program presents a golden opportunity to explore new territory and we found a great place to experience it first-hand.  Maine has incredible scenery but also is a year-round powersports mecca, with trails that run in nearly every direction and some right up to the Canadian border.  We’ve had many excellent riding adventures in Maine and will always jump at an opportunity to come back.  Our destination on this trip would be 201 ...

ADVENTURES MADE EASY

We’re always ready for any adventure that lets us explore new territory.  As anyone who has planned a weekend riding trip can tell you though, it’s not always easy prepping your machines and gear, packing it all on the trailer, and towing it cross-country.  Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could just show up, slip on your helmet, and ride away?  Now you can do exactly that and at the end of the ...
