Monster Quad
« on: November 24, 2015, 08:47:09 PM »
I stole this from a friend last year for a song and a dance. Its a 2011 Can-Am Renegade 800r.  I've been riding every other weekend with the boys (8 and 10) since they were old enough to ride 50cc dirt bikes and we have gradually moved them through different sized bikes/quads. Ive had my fair share of bikes/quads/SXS but I had the chance to ride one of these years ago and always told myself that if the opportunity presented itself I would own one.  Hands down this is the best quad I have ever ridden, comfortable, nimble, fast as hell and torque for days. It will pull wheelies at 30-40 mph....ridiculous. its 4WD but acts like its a sport quad, its heavy (>700lbs) but doesn't feel like a blocky, awkward utility quad.  Once I get some pics ill let you see the rest of it.

Nice. Pretty "sporty" looking for such a large quad.

Probably a few things in it future- full skid plates, couple lighting upgrades,  winch & new tires/beadlocks soon. Ive already changed all the fluids....multiple times... these v-twins can be touchy if you miss the maintenance. the computers on them are ridiculous, they know exactly what s going on inside that engine...never thought I would see they day when I could plug my scanner into my quad.

I've been moving the box of skid plates around the shop for 6 months now. Finally had an evening to get some time to myself.

Some decent bike specific instructions and  a free tshirt I didn't know I got out of the deal


You can see the huge difference in the tiny front stock skid plate. To the full undercarriage coverage front to back

The center plate is a monster. I'm pretty impressed with the construction. Everything lined up and went on easily. The thickness in the plates was also a deciding factor on the ricochet brand.

Some serious armour added there!
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Those are solid, rocks beware.

We took a week trip last month to Heppner Oregon ORV park. Last camping trip of the year, it was a good one. 4 families, 16 bikes/quads/rzr between the whole lot of us. My wife had made a front pack harness long ago when my boys were little, allows me to stand up and keep her stuck to me because its inevitable she will fall asleep within 5 minutes. (notice the blue bungee to keep her helmet up) Mind you this is family "pack riding" where you don't see speeds over 5-8 mph, where most of the riders are under 7-8 yrs old. The dads have to go out on their own during nap time to do the high speed blasting and sketchy trail rides. Good times. ;D
