Been snowing about 1 1/2 to 2 hours in Moline Illinois and theres about 1 inch or so on my deck railing. The yards is almost all snow with very little grass showing. If it keeeps it up like they're talking about i will have 3-6 when its all said and done. That would be just great....that means i have to readjust my track, put the tripple pipes on the RXL and reinstall my clutches and belt and go terrorize the country side.

You moline guys, where do you ride?! My grandparents live in Moline and Coal Valley. I know there are trails (from what the grandma says..) out by/towards/in coal valley, but not in Moline that I've heard of? haha just wondering because I am semi-aware of that area. :p

This is great, I live out by DeKalb and we got about 5 inches. I am fortunate enough (In the winter) to live in the middle of a bunch of farmers fields. The two farmers directly behind my house planted bean this year and didn't till it. Its like riding on your grass its so smooth. So Yesterday I took it out made like a 3 mile course through the fields. Ya know nice and easy in the corners, trying not to throw the snow. I Went out today and the wind was kind enough to push some fresh powder on my course, thus making a enjoyable little appetizer for the upcoming season.

Hope everyone else at least got to do a little yard riding.

How are the trails in Mchenry or Fox Lake? I would like to try them out next good snow,

Let it snow

are any of the trails open yet around moline? I live just south of there and looking for somewhere to ride?
I usually ride ditches and fields from Moline to Colona and then out to Orion and all over from there. I also got to West Liberty Ia and ride all over Muscatine Co. and Cedar Co. If ya ever wanna ride, just hollar a PM at me and we will meet up and ride. Sorry it took so long to respond.

Yeah we got something around that and it is still snowing right now. I dont really got that reliable of a sled to go that far. I sold my good good one last year. I mostly just stay around here I dont go that far this year. Next year i'm hoping to have a better one.
