Thanks guys. Yes I hate to part ways with it, but as I've told others, life happens lol simply no time nor funds to put towards it right now.
I have no plans on permanently leaving the sport, definitely want to get back in it once other things are took care of. This grizzly has been such a huge part of my life, I may shed a tear or 2 once it's gone lol.
Drmud you are very right we have had some awesome and memorable rides. I sure hope to get to ride with you again down the road.
Same with you jvictory1974, we have tried to meet up a few times and it fall thru lol but I'll still stick around this forum. I have been all along, just not posted nearly as much.
As a matter of fact Mandy, my son and I went to Windrock this past Saturday for the jamboree, to watch the events and just take in the atmosphere again. Plus we got to demo a yxz, as well as the new 4 seat wolverine! It certainly has our attention for s future purchase!
Thank y'all for the kind words!

That is good looking family!

All of us has sold stuff to take care of family, to use a football analogy, just look at this as a halftime event in the middle of game of life, maybe even just a commercial break, time out.

A tribute to Midnight and the rider with enough balls to put the Grizzly on the rock....oh and the photographer that stomped around the poison ivy and took a photo winning pic.

Here is another Midnight tribute. Trail 100 at Picket, look at the trees to see how steep, at 2.24 about three minutes are edited out while I was trying to get unstuck without flipping over. Watch how easy Nc does it, best rider that I ever rode with.

Ain't gonna lie doc, it was hard watching those videos! Memories came flooding back on how much fun I've had over the years on this thing... But more important than that, getting the privilege to meet so many great people like yourself. You have been a true friend to me ever since we met back it 2012.. lol crazy to think it's been that long ago!! All this does is give me determination to pick it back up somewhere down the road.
It was great watching those videos again!!!

Update:

Just installed a new battery. Fires right up, runs just like it should. Unfortunately, due to the dead battery it fried my gauge. Put a new one on. The drawback is it reset the hours and milage. I did a little research on this forum and found where I posted the miles and hours at the start of 2015. Since then it's only had 200-300 miles put on, so I'd say it's in the neighborhood of 4200-4300 miles, and roughly 475 hours .

Update....
Midnight magic is no longer with us...
It's been a heck of an adventure with it. Even moreso, wonderful opportunity to meet so many great people who share the passion for riding and fellowship.
Doc I'm not forgetting what you said. This is simply halftime

I've never met you but I did follow you with you you tube videos and when I was looking for a front bumper for my Grizzly you told me about your Warn bumper and that is the one I went with and think it looks great. Like I told my riding buddy if that bumper holds up with the mudman it's has to be a good bumper!!! LOL anyway good luck with your next journey in life and hopefully that brings ROCKS, MUD, WATER and DIRT back someday.

Thanks guys! It's gonna take a while to get some other things took care of, but either way I'm not going anywhere as far as this forum is concerned . I know I've not been near as active on it as I used to be, and probably still wont be, but I'll definitely pop in just to browse, and if I can be of help I'll sure do it.

Had to watch that last vid again, could not help but laugh thinking about how you would wait for me to catch up, and we would take off again.....lol. And, that spot that I was hung up for about three minutes, Nc patiently waited for me, a short ways up the trail, when I got to him, his kind words ....that was a tricky spot. That was a grea day in the woods on a Grizzly. There will be more rides in your future, don’t worry, still sad to see Magic leave.

Another Nc quote on the trail. Most people that ride with me crash. And I told him...that most people that ride with me tear something up......lol let’s see, I sent him a spare whole rear brake caliper after Brimstone...And Pickett, have a pic of him on my winch line that is now gone to memory only with photo bucket. And, if he ever looks back at his brother and makes sure he is ok with the next ....., it will be pretty harry, wish I had a video of that spot at Brimstone, riding off the map with Redrzr and Dino. May look for a vid of the day.

As stated before, best technical rider that I have rode with, and always wore a helmet on those rides.


Edit: found a vid of that day at Brimstone, Nc brother in front of me, Nc on point. Very Steep with a rut.





Good times Nc.

lol whew yes that was an awesome adventure on those outlaw trails that day. I've got a couple videos from that day. But still some of the most hairy situations were not captured on video due to us all having to help each other! Also I'm grateful that your curse wore off on me and not mine on you haha. I'll definitely not forget our adventure at pickett getting the grizzly out of the woods!
Derek sold his Rincon a little over a month ago. But he just bought a brand new adventure motorcycle, so at least he's still riding something. Ill bet once I get something else he'll get back into it with me.
