For most of my life, I’ve always been a Macgyver at hart, fixing and building anything and everything since I was a kid. At 13, I put a lawnmower engine on a soap box go-cart that I bought. Then I graduated to buying broken go-carts and mopeds. I would fix them and ride them, then trade or sell them off for the next repairable project.
Around 2001 , I bought my first Suzuki Vinson atv and added everything from Tracks to homemade fender flairs that no one made for it. I could never leave well enough alone. I sold that a few years later for a motorcycle. Fast forward to 2016 when I bought a new CFMOTO Cforce 500HO EPS. I have already started customizing it.
I knew I had to learn the new laws of ATVing, so I joined the NHATV club in the spring of 2016….Best move ever. Not only have I learned a lot by volunteering with them, but I have made new friends and gone to new ATV events such as the Jericho ATV Festival, Camp RZR, and the Bear Book State park Toys for Tots ride. That tends to circle back to making more new friends, going to more events, and learning more new things about ATVing. I now find myself sharing this new knowledge to other newbies like myself. The club has now made me a Director. I can’t wait to see what new adventures will arise from this.
