last weekend I got the opportunity to meet some friends at Windrock off road park in Oliver Springs, Tennessee. There was a Teryx 800 2 seater, a Teryx 750 4 seater, a 680 Rubicon, a 570 Sportsman and my Wolverine the first day. The second day we had a 900 RZR S join us. The riders were from Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina and my self from Pennsylvania. We rode around 150 miles, covering as much rough stuff as we could. The T4 had an axle pop out Saturday night, but he was prepared and we fixed it up quick. All in all, we had a great ride!

No, we didn't make it to the train. We did go to the Devil's Elbow, but there were 20 RZR's sitting there while 1 tried to go up the right side (unsuccessfully, LOL).
I fully expected to destroy the stock 2.blow's, but they survived the weekend. The only place I got stuck was trail 44, in the dark, and it was due to a lack of ground clearance. I got hung up on the skid plate going up a steep hill with tree roots sticking out, so no shame there!

Have you been to Brimstone? If so whats the comparison to the 2. Our group is looking at Windrock or Brimstone for next spring. Also how do you like the JBS Sheave, Hammer?

I have not been to Brimstone, but I've been told it is better suited for families.
I do not have a JBS sheave in my wolverine, but I do in my Grizzly. I was just harrassed into putting the JBS sticker on the wolvy, LOL
On my Grizzly I didn't see massive performance gains, but I did see a big jump in usable torque, when hillclimbing it will pull all day long! My Grizzly also had 5k miles on it when I installed the sheave and it still has the original wet clutch and other components. I think I would have saw more gains if everything had been fresh and new at the same time.

I see they don't require helmets? And how strict are they on drinking on the trail? We dont go crazy on that but I was curious because a few of us just like to have a drink or too on top of the mountain. We went to Royal blue last year and we got stopped 3 times by DNR on the trail.

Windrock will check coolers on occasion. if they find it they make poor it out.

I have been to windrock, brimstone, Royal blue, and wildcat. Mostly wildcat and Royal blue. I have taken alcohol and my little piece every time. Have only been stopped at brimstone and asked for permit. Never questioned about alcohol.

Easiest to most technical
Wildcat
Royal blue
Brimstone
Windrock
Just my personal opinion.

We didn't get stopped this time, but we have in the past. They check permits and such. Like Big DogDaddy said, if they find alcohol they make you pour it out. We did see a few people drinking, but nothing excessive.

Excessive drinking while trail riding is just stupid. Putting yourself and others in danger. I'm glad the policy is in place and glad it is enforced with some tolerance. One thing that just pisses me off is empties and trash on the trails. Pack it in Pack it out.

Agreed. They were having trail clean up day while we were there, but it must have been on the main trails because we didn't see anyone cleaning up

Ya that's what I've heard. Most of my time spent in the area was in the 60's and 70's visiting relatives. No so bad back then.
