 "No you may not build new mountain bike trails in the woods, the skidding of the tires will ruin the natural drainage of the environment."


....

 That is so true why don't officials have anything to say about that but have plenty to say about us riders.

 @EM1346 because money.
  • + 28
 friggin sick film, that guy was choochin! Im assuming its on private property too...which means money.
  • + 64
 most of the time its bloody horse riders wrecking the wildlife, the only reason why we get blamed for the enviromental damage is because they pay to ride Facepalm
  • + 28
 How often do you think tricked-out Polaris's run around in the woods doing these kinds of shenanigans? Probably not nearly as often as dudes on bikes.
  • + 48
 Its because we are seen as "hooligans", whereas those who ride trail stomping poop machines are "equestrians", and are therefore responsible and have big $$$.
(This is not MY opinion, but seems to be the opinion of many who have power over who gets to use trails)
  • + 10
 well bollocks to them!
  • + 2
 I love RZR's
  • + 16
 its not a fucking car change the title of this. just because its bigger than what you drive doesn't classify this as a car
  • + 86
 He only overshot that jump by 75 feet
  • + 20
 Regardless of all that, Im surprised balls that big can fit into a RZR.
  • + 17
 fuck off hippies
  • - 3
 And this was on private property.
  • + 14
 I thought he was going to explode the wheels and roll off into flaming death off the first jump. Huge sack
  • + 2
 @norcorider540 I've noticed in a lot of videos people in the utv industry refer to them as cars, which doesn't make sense to me either

 We're just getting into UTVs! Fun and great for shuttling!
  • + 1
 Tons of these in the desert.
  • + 1
 The money argument doesn't quite make sense to me. Generally speaking, people who ride top notch, or really any bike priced over $2,500, are the people with money. A Polaris like this one is an "extra-extravagance" but many (not all) who ride bikes seriously are in the upper middle class. This is a leisure sport for those who can afford it. Usually those with money are the ones who petition the FWS or whomever for legitimate trails. It's part of why the sport thrives.

 Fuck lazy fatasses that ride horses. They're the biggest pricks I've ever run into on the trails.
  • + 14
 Actually my wife rides a horse. and her ass is pretty fine. Big Grin and yes that horse has one big ____ - well you fill in the blank Eek
  • + 2
 Well to be fair she's probably not riding her horse on bike trails and cursing out/hitting bikers... like the lazy fatasses that I'm speaking of.
  • + 6
 And to be fair , the size of ones ass does not reflect the fact that some riders, weather there on a horse or a bike have the sense to share the trails. tup

now I just have to find a way to sell the horse and get one of those RZR's Big Grin
  • + 3
 I'm sure it varies by region and country, but in some areas equestrians have big time, old money. Not "check out my new $5000 bike" money. More like, "look at Secretariat's grandson, he was only $800,000" kind of money. There are a lot of broke cowboys and 4H kids too, but not many rich mountain bikers.
  • - 1
 Mountain bikers are not people with money. Any form of cycling other than road racing or CX will always be seen as childish and not worth dealing with. But a buggy like that... As they say "let the man hear the roar of the engine and his dick will tick..."
  • + 12
 @norcorider540 It is a vehicle with 4 wheels which is powered by an engine where the driver sits inside. It is a car. It is just a specially designed off road car. That is like saying a DH bike is not a bike because it is for going off road and would be shit for doing your shopping.

 All that stuff if pretty cool but I see no sports there. Rotating the wheel and pushing pedals is not a sport
  • + 14
 'So THAT'S the guy who stole my KOM...'
  • + 4
 Full carbon bike $10k, UTV $10k....when I can't pedal no more, I sure he'll not gonna get an e-bike!
  • + 1
 My uncle had 10 horses and made around 75 grand annually. He was broke for his passion. Sounds like a biker to me. The rich are generally rare, no matter where you live.
  • + 3
 @Chuvak You couldn't drive like that in your dreams. This guy has talent considering how narrow that wheelbase is
  • - 1
 @somismtb I don't say that it was uncool and regular driving. the idea is that this stuff is not a sports. like folmula-1 or moto gp racing.
  • + 2
 @scott-townes I ride horses and bikes, if you think it's easy to ride a horse try it. I'm sure you'll be cryin to get off pretty quickly.
  • + 1
 @Chuvak I would love to see you try and race offroad
  • + 1
 He has such good control tbh, sick vid tbh
  • + 0
 d-man, that's probably because you're not a lazy fatass. Only lazy fatasses that are rude pieces of trash on horses should be insulted by my comment and rightfully so! Smile

 @thrasher2: an inexpensive horse is as much as a very nice new bike every year

 Building that landing sure was a waste of time.
  • + 37
 Yeah, overshoot much?
  • + 133
 he ratboyed that jump
  • + 40
 "Ratboyed" that jump

...and I think a new term has just entered the mountain-biking lexicon.
  • + 4
 did he even needed a landing? i mean, he landed flat !
  • + 26
 you mean he landed rat?!
  • + 0
 i miss ratboy
  • + 133
 Attempted. Followed instructions. Dick stuck in toaster.
  • + 103
 The first jump proves that Kelly McGarry drives this thing
  • + 89
 Raddest Shuttle Vehicle ever?
  • + 9
 Convincing your bogan mates to be shuttle bitch was never easier. Yannick Granieri had a vid with a two bike BC racks style rack on the back of one of these.
  • + 1
 I want one!!!!!! Pleeeease
  • + 87
 oh god wait til Pastrana sees this..
  • + 32
 OH......MY.........GOD Somebody send this to the nitro circus right fucking now!!!!!
  • + 8
 next time on a WRC
  • + 2
 best comment! Pastrana going to be like "well I know what I'm going to start building at Pastrana Land" but talking really fast and excited cuz thats how he always is haha
  • + 80
 As long as it's not an ebike...
  • + 45
 "Freeriding in a Car"

lol looks like a golf cart on steroids
  • + 3
 Yeah-couldn't agree more......and sounds like a flatulent dog on steroids.The video was great with all its different angles and rad driving but couldn't help thinking back to that Baja Monster truck video a few months ago and its screaming earthshaking big block roar.Now that was really spectacular-that sound and those exploding earth steps and those..... well everything.
  • + 1
 And in beautiful Ensenada Mexico. Cheers

 "16 inches in my rear no homo"
  • + 37
 Isn't this the new Coast Gravity Park trail?
  • + 27
 It's actually the only way to access the park, it's bound to weed a few people out
  • + 6
 Yeah - it's their new shuttle system!
  • + 4
 Yeah, it's pretty cool now....... Until you got one of these super Atvs tearing down on your ass when your trying to ride some double track trail
  • + 30
 the fact that this was recently done in Whatcom county and certain trails in Whatcom county have been illegal for several years due to land use rights and "erosion" is ABSOLUTELY mind boggling
  • + 3
 I saw Janicki on the truck at the end, where was this filmed? Was it on private logging land, or DNR land?
  • + 13
 This was filmed on private logging land.
  • + 3
 thats kind of what I was thinking private or not... if you have money you can do what you want. But still not build trails.
  • + 7
 I think it's pretty safe to say that the real reason trails get shut down isn't solely because of environmental issues, despite what the government tell you...
  • + 2
 It's hard to talk about environmental issues when private land for commercial wood production is involved. I could buy it if someone started roosting some old growth forest loam. Environmental issues FFS... I'd bet it was filmed on a land that was about to be logged
  • + 1
 Bucket list!
  • + 1
 The issue around Bham is liability, not erosion.. DNR is very frightened by potential lawsuits
  • + 1
 So then is it just rumor that there are laws on the books to protect the DNR from lawsuits by recreators? That was something I heard when the NorthFork was getting shut down...
  • + 30
 Couldn't get out of the wall of death I see. Add a turbo.
  • + 3
 Yeah. Was that just an extended crash with the pedal stuck down?
  • + 17
 That's why it's "to be continued"... He's still going in circles trying to get out.
  • + 1
 I think he should try "punching" it.
  • + 1
 AWD and Turbos are standard in some UTVs...will set you back $28K
  • + 24
 Huk 2 flat BRRRAAAAAAAPPPPP
  • + 20
 Very entertaining to watch thats for sure, but i hope it will stays that way... an entertainement. Better never see one of those mother in my trail
  • + 1
 Fun to watch for sure....Is anyone/everyone going to run out and dump 20 Large into a Buggy? Doubt it. (plus the hundred$ if not into the thousand$ for repair every time there's an "oops" moment).
  • + 2
 I'm sitting here thinking I'm gonna be out of riding till next fall do to the necessity of a cartilage transplant in my knee that one of these looks like a ton of fun....
  • + 2
 Crazy fun to watch! Can't help but think if I caught this guy on my favorite trail (you sir get one freebie on account of your giant balls), I would complementing his mind blowing skills until the last shovel of dirt filled in his grave.
  • + 1
 We have specific UTV trails in Lake Tahoe, Ca.
  • + 19
 I favorited this as soon as the helicopter dropped the thing.
  • + 19
 I'm assuming that thing costs less than a carbon Yeti with Enve wheels.
  • + 6
 Nope, they're $25,000 Stock. RJ's was turbocharged and had other aftermarket accessories.
  • + 16
 So basically still cheaper than a bike.
  • + 15
 Dear Santa....

 I was out dirtbiking one day and seen a guy in one of these side by sides bulldozing his way down one of our singletrack trails, knocking trees down to get through. He finally got wedged hard between 2 trees and was completely stuck. He had the nerve to ask us for help. The owners of these things are even worse then the backwards hat wearing quad losers, i think its because they require zero skill to operate
  • + 9
 I had no choice but to ditch my bike and crash off to the side of a trail one day as I was flowing from a section of bike trail into some dirt jumps. The UTV was parked right at the exit to the trail I was on so you couldn't see him until you came around the last corner. The guy just looked at me then sped off chewing the s*** out of the dirt jumps as he went. This was in a non-motorized recreation area beside an endless network of trails already used by quads and dirt bikes, so not a huge fan either...
  • + 1
 In addition to mtb's I also go wheeling a lot, the UTV guys come into established trails that 4 wheel drive clubs have been maintaining for years and have built up relationships with local officials and residents. They are all a bunch of rich dumb asses (well maybe not all but many) drive way to fast, go off trail, leave garbage, and just generally don't have any respect for anything. They don't realize the effort and hard work the offroad community has put in over the years to keep the trails they are riding open, amidst constant pressure to have them closed. So I too am not a huge fan.

 blocks gymkhana vids just got beat....log grind/slide! = bad ass
  • + 7
 Longest UTV Jump ever.... To Flat!
  • + 3
 Well i would say he overshot that first gap by like 40'. That was really exciting and looked fun as hell. The only quarrel i have with this video is that it was not free ride at all. There was a clear (road/trail/path) he followed the whole time. The trees across the river were the closest to free ride i saw there. Never the less, pretty sure that was epic.
  • + 2
 Why isn't the driver just in the middle? I mean, it's not like he's gonna take his wife to the gocery store in that thing.... Or is he? Perhaps this is his route back from the store... his drive way so to speak, which would explain his being so good at it.

 The uphill portion reminds me (kind of) the infamous Pikes Peak race with Ari Vatanen: www.dailymotion.com/video/xgzkr_pikes-peak-405-t16-ari-vatanen_auto

 fuck gymkhana.
  • + 1
 where i come from there is a group of about 40 of the side by side guys and they all go out in a big line and constantly spin there tires and absolutely destroy the trails turning everything into sloppy mud and ruts.

 That is deffinatly not your average stock rzr, very cool though.

 is this fantasy ?

 Cut in a landslide...... No escape from reality

 that 170' launch in the beginning was RIDICULOUS. I'm surprised there isn't a racing circuit for these bad boys yet.
  • + 2
 There is. It is called TerraCross. Its even televised.

But on that note, its more a supercross circuit. With this kind of course, TerraCross needs to step it up.

And the video had some creative editing. Bent control arms, quick-cut after the wall ride spin-out?

No denying the massive jump to flat was legit, and looks like nothing blew-up!
  • + 1
 they have also been racing gncc. funny people in here saying hes lazy. go race a gncc and see how beat you are after.
  • + 1
 How is it classified as a freeriding? I mean, video is very special and cool, however I saw only roads and artificially prepared section...
  • + 1
 One of the cinematographers is called Milan Spasic. Perhaps the same Milan Spasic that co-created the Sprung series with Rankin?
  • + 1
 At Rampage when they talked about the Polaris RZR booter, I thought some manscaping company had put some sponsorship money up for naming rights. This makes much more sense.
  • + 1
 Hmmm, did I see bent control arms after hitting that log slide river crossing???
You have to have money to burn if you own one of those toys. It's just a big RC buggy Smile
  • + 2
 Pretty sure that grind thing he did bent the lower arms? Cool vid all the same though!
  • + 2
 I like those new crankset on this vehicle... Common whats next, nascar with teeter totters?
  • + 1
 I'd watch that.
  • + 1
 Why would you not ride a dirt bike? Are we not riders here? Ok, cool.....next?
  • + 1
 they should have done a car jump over bike instead of a bikenjump over a car. that would be pretty funny

 Here's a theory... if you had an oval hole, like the hole at the end of this vid, could you ride a bike round it kind of pumping in the ends?

 If you have an oval hole, you probably need corrective surgery.

 yeah...hmm...wonder if it's "Bent" or was it just "Bending"...rad either way...

 No those A-Arms are already bent, its the way they are made.
  • + 0
 Looks like the left one get's totally bent...
  • + 1
 definitly dented that holz a arm
  • + 1
 Straight from the comments section on YouTube:

"The a-arms and rear radius rods got slightly bent during the log ride, but did not break. We did lose one ball joint on the thread the needle stunt during testing and had to replace a fender as well. Other than that the XP1K2 RZR ran flawless. No major breaks or failures or crashes!! RJ nailed it!! "
  • + 1
 Guess I was wrong, just with a lot of aftermarket A-arms coming manufactured bent like that I just thought that was the case.
