We just purchased a used Rhino. Don't even have it home from Dealer prep yet. This is my first, so to say "I'm a Beginner" is pretty darn accurate.

We live about 7 miles north of Caldwell (on the east edge of Purple Sage Golf Course, if you are a golfer maybe you'll know where that is.) Our neighbors have a Rhino and relatives all have Rzr's. Between them all, they really perked our interest, so we went out and bought a used Rhino. If things go as I expect, maybe we will be upgrading to a newer model, later. We (neighbors and us) plan on spending quite a bit of our camping time riding together.

I'm not sure we are quite ready for the "Experienced" or "Expert" level of riding, but I'd really like to find out more. It sounds like it could be a lot of fun. What types of rides are we talking about and where would they happen??

Thanks for the notice and I'll look forward to hearing from you.

That's cool. What year model did you get? I'm more into adventure riding than anything. I don't get real crazy with my rhino, I keep it pretty safe. The type of group rides I'm trying to put together are more like trying to find new places and going on old trails or roads that I wouldn't want to scratch up my truck on. Maybe a little small scale rock crawling and that kind of thing. I have a video on here from a ride my brother and I did out in the Owyhees. Maybe check it out. Anyway, I'd be glad to have you in the group and your rzr friends are welcome too. I'm more interested in getting a good group of people together to just go out every now and then and share some time with. Thanks for the interest.

Jason

We purchased a pretty decent 2005 Rhino 660. I'm having them replace the floor boards and that is what's taking so long. Hopefully, we'll have it tomorrow (3/29) then I've got a lot of accessories to mount before Monday.

We're heading up to Woodhead Park (Brownlee Reservoir) with our neighbors, and hope to do a little trail riding up there - both the Idaho side and the Oregon side.

Those rides you're talking about sound exactly like what we're hoping to do. Are you talking 1-day'ers or RV's and overnighters?

Thanks, Jason

Bert

Hey Flasher, do you know if the "idaho UTV" club has a web site???? I and my neighbor each have Rhino's and are always looking for rides and places to ride. I really get discouraged when I find a recommended trail system, then find out that UTV are prohibited, nothing 50 inches or wider is allowed.

A UTV Club would have a much better data base of areas UTVs can go. We currently spend most of our riding in the Owyhees, with a few excursions north of Crouch and some up around Bear (our of Council). You just have to make sure you have the appropriate maps out, cause if they catch you on a more restrictive trail, it could be spendy.

We're planning on running up to Oreana Thursday to do a little riding around. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. There will be 2 couples with two Yamaha Rhinos going. The four of us (not the Rhinos) are retired, but still like to get the adrenalin pumping once in a wild.

If anyone is interested in joining us, the more the merrier. We usually leave early enough to stop for breakfast on the way. The little restaurant in Murphy has become one of our favorite.

If interested, answer back and we'll try to figure out a way to communicate (email, text, or phone). I kind of like to know a little about trail partners before we meet up - just being a little on the safe side.

Thanks Flasher, we'll be in touch. Thursday is mainly to check out the conditions in and around the lower elevations behind Oreana, and to test out my Rhino heating system. I'm trying to make it as comfortable as possible for the wife (she hates being cold). I've mounted a full enclosure and installed a heater (coolant hookup). Now we'll see if it will keep her snug and cozy.

Don't really know just how long we'll be out, but it will still take up most of our daylight, I'm sure.

We'll keep in touch. Thursday is getting us started for the year. We can never seem to get our "fill" of the trail rides.
