This was a quote from one of the pic threads:

"The ruts sucked. Miles and miles of 15" deep ruts. If you got out of them you sank and got stuck. In them you got hip cramps from holding your feet in the air. We all felt it.
Ride standing on the pegs you say ? Yeah right !"


I guess they didn't appreciate the trail breaking. Doesn't look like they would have gone very far without the ruts.

Aw, they were just whining... and you are absolutely right about needing the ruts. A few went over crusted snowmobile tracks that worked better, but after a while the later bikes sank through the crust and were done.
