    Ok here we go! Devin, first I was in no way “slamming” Polaris. And in fact I do appreciate that they’re investing in the dunes by purchasing the store. Second, even if I was slamming them I don’t see how that makes me or anyone else “hypocritical.” Third, now that you’ve opened this can of worms. My first trip to Glamis was memorial weekend in 1974. Yes, 1974. I have seen the changes over the years and perhaps I long for the old days when the place was waaay more laid back. No overzealous rangers, smaller crowds and less rude ass campers. So with that being said, I remember watching Crusty Demons of Dirt in 1995 (on a VHS tape no less) and the guys were at the “trendy dunes,” and even THEN I was like oh shit here we go, this place is going to blow up. Then there were the party’s at the pit (competition hill) where assholes were digging trenches so you would wreck or get stuck, burning OHVs to the ground and it was one big effing mess til the law clamped down. So if anyone ever wonders why there’s such a HUGE presence of LEOs and BLM at the dunes this is one of the main reasons. Since you didn’t ask, my opinion on camp rzr? It’s awesome that they display the vehicles and offer test drives and will repair your cart on the spot. But. Live concerts, a big party and a a fireworks display? If I wanted that shit I’d just stay home and go to Disneyland. I go to the dunes to escape that crap and in fact refuse to bring a tv along. This type of event brings in non-duners that makes the CAMPING turn into the shit show as I referenced with that image. Some of those people dgaf and trash the place leaving it to the folks that are truly passionate about the dunes (dare I say LOVE the place) to clean up after them. Many people enjoy the event, it just ain’t for me. There was a day when guys built their own sand cars, and the only thing to finance was ATCs/odysseys/dirt bikes. Now anybody with a few thousand dollars down can get into a cart with amazing long travel suspension and an automatic (gasp!) trans. Easy to drive and easy to wreck. I think they’re awesome and will buy a Textron XX 4 seater when they release them. I’m just not a fan of the commercialization of Glamis, but there’s no stopping it. Now get off my lawn!

    If Polaris wants to "donate" to the dunes, how about the pony up some of the the high priced attorneys the have on retainer for a SH!T TON of pro bono action lead by the ASA.

    Yep. Nobody does me like me. But the other me is a nice change up once in a while.

    Pretty cool article on the history of Indian Motorcycles. I saw that it was the bike of choice for the Pastrana jump in Vegas earlier this year. Looks like they're making a decent run at Harley in the market. https://www.knfilters.com/blog/a-history-of-indian-motorcycles-the-century-old-american-brand-making-a-comeback

    Back in the days you could drive it yourself. Not go out and ride in your automated driverless sand rail or toy. Just wait, soon we all will be deemed to flawed to operate these hi performance machines. Law enforcement will allow us out there as long as our toys have the auto drive function. Those participants will think, boy wish I could drive this thing, like the old days. Glad I'll be out of the sport or on the wrong side of the lawn by then.

    We want the old days back again. People new to this activity, with their factory built, store bought and probable financed toys are going to be looking back 30 years from now saying, I want the old days back. Seems as time marches faster then our ability to accept the change it brings. I still love the dunes.

    I own a Polaris i guess that makes me a dirt bag. Heck I own two Polaris machines. I’m reallly screwed. It’s amazing on how your choice of vehicle you drive in the dunes makes you a certain type of person. I have a BFD sandcar also but I will probably drive the rzr to camp this coming weekend and have a good time doing so.

    Instead of fabbing a 50 gal tank, how about just mounting a 55 gal drum on the tongue?

    While Conrad does have some excellent points, his concern about the exploitation of glamis started long before Polaris came along, and in fact Polaris really isn't doing anything to exploit glamis itself, it's just bringing it's event to one of the places where a lot of their customers use their Rzrs. If we're really worried about too much exposure and too many disrespectful, litterbug newbies, we have to ask ourselves: how many people are watching youtube videos and deciding to check it out based on how much fun they saw in the videos? While Camp Rzr can be a cluster fluck for those who yearn for days of old when we didn't have to buy passes or deal with too many rangers, again, Camp Rzr and Polaris aren't to blame for either of those problems. I don't like big crowds and I'd recommend anyone who doesn't like them either just do what I'm planning on doing: stay away from it. There are plenty of people who will enjoy the event, more power to them! No sense in hating on them or the event, just go dune or play in the dirt somewhere else that weekend.

    Sometimes it's better to leave sleeping dogs lay. AJ's are all aluminum and will have metallic looking oil after a little use. Add break fluid and close the lid. If it is shifting ok then move on.

    I wonder how long it will be before they have to change the name to "Native American Motorcycles"...and then "Liz Warren Motorcycles" to be politically correct.

    So you know I like math.......................the chance to win is 1 in one quadrillion. let me put it down in number form 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000 yes that's it. 15 zeros. the world has 7 billion people on it now. So you would need 142,857 worlds like ours and populated the same and only 1 person will win from all the worlds. Its a scam, But I did have the African prince tell me he has $25,000,000 waiting for me as soon as I pay him $5k. I think getting the $25 million from the prince has better odds

    Flip the switch a few times to kick the fuel pump on. You’ll hear the difference once the system is pressurized.

    Yes we where and the majority of us learned on a dirt bike or quad. We learned being a dick bag was painful and some even died learning this sport. SxS's have completely removed the learning curve for many. They go down to a stealership buy one and hit the desert with no clue but they think they are the shit. They sign and drive and never progress and learn and are a menace to everyone around them. The only good thing is they usually film their stupidity and post it on YouTube. As for Poolaris their sole interest in Glamis is profit. It you believe anything else you need to put down the crack pipe and check into some kind of rehab mental facility. As for Camp RZR aka Camp Cluster F*&% it has actually passed the West Hollywood Gay Pride Parade for the largest gathering of the LGBTQ community in the country.

    Well after being paralyzed 4 1/2 years ago and losing the use of my right arm I have slowly learned to use my left. Odd and awkward but I'm figuring it out.

    In all fairness, I've talked smack about those congregating in Garbage Flats for years. Dirty shiatty people many of which have various forms of Hep C, you'd do well to invest in preventative measures prior to venturing in...Here's what I saw last time I visited,

    First thing to do it pull the drain plug and see what kind of sparkly mess you get if any at all. There is whole list of things I can have you check before pulling the trans, but lets get through the easy stuff first. The next thing I would check after pulling the oil is the reverse arm on the drivers side. Disconnect the cable and manually push the arm in and out of engagement to see if you can feel the detent. All the way forward would be disengaged, towards the bell housing is engaged. Maybe put your hand on that arm when pushed forward and turn the flange like you do in the video and see if you can feel anything there. It possible that the detent fell out or the cable needs to be adjusted. Probably easier to call me after you check those items for the next steps.

    This car has some very unique and cool stuff on it....I love the clean wiring and that simple accessory belt line! The water lines area trip...I've never seen that set up before. It looks badass! Are those braided lines that are tapped into the hardlines part of the steam port? Just curious. Sweet car man...GLWTS! ~jw

    If your turn brake in in the middle it is easiest to run the lines down the middle. My car the turn brake is on the left so my lines run down the left.

    Going to an S4 and looking for the best options for shifters. What do you have and like/dislike about it? Pictures would help as well. Thanks
