    I'm not sure how to feel about the fact that most of the trail vids that get posted here are are nicer then what goes for a road around here. I'm going to have mount a camera and hit some roads around here.

    Ha. Yeah, I agree. Riding out west appears nothing like riding in OH, PA, WV, VA, and KY. It’s beautiful scenery but I think I’d get bored.

    Yes, it does get boring, and dusty, I prefer the mountains and better trails, this is just what is close to get to quickly.

    yep if I was out west itd be a go fast machine or nothing for me I think. Now I know why rock crawling is so popular. When I see it on tv I kind of wonder why you would do that but then if your other option is flat desert I get it. but hey ride what you've got where your at and just enjoy yourself. That after all is the point...

    I'm curious, what is the biggest difference in riding east to west? Is is mostly the amount of mud?
    We've ridden some of HM and the group I was with didnt want to do many black trails so what we were on seemed mostly like very dusty fire roads (no criticism intended) we had a great time and saw a part of the country we had never been in before.
    What are the trails like in OH and PA?
    We like Utah because of the diversity in terrain and it will test man and machine, (not just horsepower) there are sand dunes, deep creek beds, lots of rock and ledges and steps that would tear off most bumper mounted spare tires.
    We love Colorado high country trails that are relatively smooth to boulder fields, but climbing to 13,000+ feet with the views are incredible.
    We've never joined the ROTR in Moab, but this guys videos on the rally are always excellent;

    It varies a lot. Our rocks are very slick, even on the rare instances they are clean and dry. I, myself, avoid mud. Everythings tight, your tires always have dirt and mud stuck to them and theres trees and limbs laying across trails that can completely change your direction of travel. Instantly. Nothings flat for more than a few hundred yards.

    This is a Tar hollow road. It is a county road that is not legal to run a SXS on.

    yep as described its almost always wet or slick and the rocks usually have moss on them and at least the trails we end up on tend to have deep ruts with roots and logs that make the tires struggle. Seems the biggest difference east and west in my eyes is the nearly constant presence of moisture here in the east. But yes most of the green and blue trails I have ridden at hm are pretty much graded roads with the occasional creek crossing. The black trails are what most of us back yard guys ride. Id love to rip a big sand dune in one of the higher hp machines on the market some day.

    Another fine Ohio rd the buggies aren't allowed on because of the street legal thing.
