Default Jumping quads!!!! track plans posted

My neighbor'* son recently purchased a Yamaha Blaster for $700, and has been having a blast on it.... jumping, riding wheelies etc...


Well, Him ( Brook ) and Matt decided to make up a jump from their driveway to my side yard. after a few days, it wasn't big enough, so they made it bigger. This thing is a BLAST to jump!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, here are some pics.... enjoy

A guy near me made a large oval track for his kids, it hasn't been used in several years, but you can still see the banked corners through the grass

Well, I got bored and decided to plan up a track

I own 7.5 acres and have a huge side yard where the track is. My property is outlined in blue, the black is the current track we were working on today, the grey will be an alternate route..... there will be much more to come including some table tops, more jumps and burmed corners

This image is def not current, but it works.





Well, what about the grass you might say? well, I don't care about it. I would rather see my neighbors son and friends along with my friends out there getting some use out of the area then me just mowing it every other week and watching the grass grow. Plus, the grass is crap right now anyways, and I plan on planting some nice grass in the unused areas when all is said and done.

You have some machinery to maintain it? i've had several friends put up tracks and after about a year they are so trashed and beyond repair capable of hand tools they give it up.
