Where is Winnemucca (and how do you pronounce it?)

great pics! My wife is really looking close at those Rzrs.. do you enjoy yours/ recommend buying one? We're in a 2.2 ecotec buggy now (too much car for her), and a Rzr is a big step down, but I've heard they're lots of fun and easy to drive..

winnemucca is a couple hours north of reno nevada. I live near boise idaho. and it is 3.5 to 4 hours from me headed south. the rzr s is my buddys. He originally bought the regular rzr last year. then the rzr s came out and i talked him into swtiching. the rzrs is a much better unit with factory longtravel. better tires and mmore power. It drives very easy and the suspension is very plush. It is to soft for aggresive jumping even the mild jumping i was doing was bottoming it out. but my buddy and his wife are not as aggresive as i am so it works good for them. I have a ridge runner that i love. the only upside the the rzr s over my buggy is the 4x4. but it is a very rare occasion where that is a disadvantage. the snow and mud is usually it. every once in a while we run on trails that have loose hill climbs with out a run at them and have to go slow. then the 4x4 helps. but on the whole they are both capable machines in the right hands.

Nice pics, I've spent many a day out there waiting for fires to break. To bad I didn't have my buggy out there with me. Looks like the sand was in great shape.

Hey, great pics. I just recently purchased a 2005 Ridge Runner and see where yours has side panels on it. I am looking for some pics of how yours was enclosed around the side bar that opens for entry. At least mine does. I want to put sides and front cover on mine and was wondering if you have any pics of how your's is done. Any info is greatly apprteciated.
Man I love this buggy. We took it to Little Sahara this last weekend and could not be happier.
Thanks again!

Nice Pictures... Is Zackary's bike an Xtreme Typhoon or one of the knock offs? A buddy of mine designed that bike.

my sons was a typhoon. with a fully built gpx 160 from pitster pro, cranking out low 20 horse power. the thing was insane for a mini. he has now moved up to a built yamaha blaster.

My uncles shop sold xtremes. The typhoon was a cool little machine. The guy that designed them was from here. They made nice pit bikes when we went to little sahara. I have a nice little Blaster also. More money in it by far than I could ever get back out of it!

ya i feel your pain on the money pits i call toys. i have too many. but its a damn addiction. the practical part of me sasy to consolidate and narrow it down. bu ti like haveing a specific machine for each discipline. i just move from project to project adding more toys to the collection. i have to get a bigger trailer to haul them my 24 footer is too small now. and i just bought my 3 year old his first atv so the cycle starts all over again.

Well I just sold two toys and still have three ATVs, the 954 buggy, one street bike, a Camaro, a 66 GranSport, and five 4WD project/parts vehicles... I still need to sell a few and put the money back in to the others!

Did I mention I just got married??? LOL!
