    Very little use, 2002 with 4800 klms. This was my second run in about two years.

    We must have just missed ya. Four of us (three quads and a SxS) went the same route took by the looks of it. One of your pics look like the dam at the end of Bay Bulls Big Pond?

    We left Paradise around 4:30 PM, would have been at the Dam around 5:30 PM or so. Followed the TCH to Northern Pond Road I believe it was, over some fields, past the movie set and onwards to the old trackbed. Nice bit of water on the go in places, some fairly deep.

    I picked up a 2014 Yamaha Grizzly last week, made use of the old Pelican case from the KLR days as you can see in the pic!

    I was on that movie set... saw lots of folks out on 2,3,& 4 wheels. 98% were patient and understanding about the partial road closure.of course there were a few Monster/Fox idiots who just had to tear thru the worksite on their back wheels..one pair of heroes sprayed gravel all over my pick-up as he deeked out the RNC that tried to grab him..
    I had the pleasure of riding out to the site every morning at 0600 for the last 2 weeks...forgot how good early AM riding is. Had the same pleasure riding to our set in Keels, Bonavista Bay.Had the choice of a 50 min commute on pavement or a 30 min commute on the Lockston Path gravel road...great way to start the day..

    Next time you go with the quad let me know.

    I wouldn't mind a run, I'm bringing mine back from the bay next week.

    Hey Bill. I don't ride the quad a lot, but I will certainly let you know the next time I'm planning a run.

    Went for a run last Saturday from Kilbride to Witless Bay line. Great day for a quad. Crisp day and everything water/bog-wise was frozen. The little 350 worked great.

    I don't think there's any actual Newfoundland forum... But don't quote me on that.

    Might have better luck with a group on Facebook dedicated to Newfoundland atving.
