Brant Lake, NY

The weekend went too fast, but we had a great time. The terrain was different wheeling than anything I had done so far. We were on private property and trails were tight. We were blessed with dry weather in the morning, then it started a fine misty rain at lunch and the trails were totally changed.....I struggled to keep up with my mud clogged all terrains. Frank detroyed his upper control arms and was side lined at lunch. We've come to a new level of understanding......and he was able to ride with me without trying to pick my lines

The trailer came in handy, we picked up a club member that became disabled on the ride home.....limped to Albany and ended up at the warehouse for Advance Auto Parts, picked up the part (gear that's at the bottom of the distibutor) and did a parking lot install.

Looks like you had a great time, and a slick one. That sure does change the traction issue. Glad you made it without any damage. Sorry to hear about Franks upper control arms......how did he mess those up?

I know it says Brent Lake but did you mean to say Brant Lake? I am from the Albany area and my family has a place in the Adirondacks near Brant lake. I'd love to go wheeling up there, but there are a lot of legal issues.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
