Shoot Ridgway my lawnmower could pull a rzr the majority of the route from hurricane to ironton Park. It’s almost all down hill, the only up hill section is the climb on the east side of corkscrew!This is like the old days, waiting on WalMart to process the film
Oh, it happened. Have you ever seen a Grizz 550 towing a 4 seat XP 1000 from Hurricane to Cork Screw doing 20 to 30 m.p.h.?
Remember I have a witness, just waiting on the pics and I didn't start this thread

Can’t wait to see the video!
Doesn't surprise me they got their brakes hot. I really had to watch my brakes coming down Hurricane to Gladstone. My Ranger Crew doesn't have engine braking (not a problem 99% of the time) but on the steep smoother passes you can get yourself in trouble really quickly if you build to much speed. I had to ride my brakes down the passes which builds heat. As long as I kept the speed slow it wasn't a problem. Its amazing to me more people aren't hurt or killed with as many inexperienced riders and drivers you encounter out there.:wink2:
You're right, most of it was down hill. But when I hooked him up it was a dead pull uphill to get him moving. That video is short, maybe we'll get to see the one with dust trailing the grizz hauling ass in diff lock. Oh, the grizz get him up cork Screw several hundred yards due to the high speed momentum coming down Hurricane, then I got behind a jeep crawling along which kill the momentum and the grizz spun out after a couple hundred more yards after passing the jeep.
The rest of the story is;
just short of the crapper on the east side of Cork Screw I spun out, so let the jeep catch up and take over the pulling. They got to the top of Cork Screw and started down, and the jeep driver pulled too fast causing the popo to be on the brakes too much. The popo ran into the back of the jeep without brakes, so that was it. It was getting dark to we left the popo at the west side crapper, got the people to their truck at Ironton, and back to town. Then they took their truck and trailer up the next morning.
