Have you ever noticed how a dog can be standing there among a group of 10 people, but as soon as another dog comes into view, that’s the only thing his attention is focused on? Well, ATV riders are like that too. When a 400EX owner sees another 400EX, his eyes will immediately scan it to see what’s different from his. What accessory parts does it have? Do they look cooler than the accessories he has? Hey, that’s just the way we are. We’re always looking for a way to improve our ride, and it’s okay if we get a good idea while looking at someone else’s ride.
That’s why the Dirt Wheels crew likes to provide these “Readers’ Rides” pages in the magazine on a regular basis. There are two different ways we can do that. We could look up everyone’s address on our subscription list and show up at your house with our cameras: “Excuse me, do you mind if we go in your garage and shoot a few photos?” Actually, that would take too much time and our meager expense budget wouldn’t come close to covering the cost of the plane tickets. It would be much simpler and faster if everyone would send us a photo and info about their sport quad, 4×4 quad, UTV or three-wheeler. Within time, everyone’s machine will get its 15 minutes of fame. Make sure you include your name, city and state. Send e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WARNING: Much of the action depicted in this magazine is potentially dangerous. Virtually all of the riders seen in our photos are experienced experts or professionals. Do not attempt to duplicate any stunts that are beyond your own capabilities. Always wear the appropriate safety gear.
