Anyone have some good atv trails they ride on near Stroudsburg,Dumore, Throop areas? I know about Reading Anthracite trails but looking for some free riding.

Look no further than trevorton/shamokin/mt carmel/wilburton areas. Tons of trails, hill climbs, sulfur creeks...ect. :)

Nice 'Cat ya got there Anthony. 8-) I almost bought one way back when I was in the market, but I went with the Polaris 800 - at the time ('05) it WAS the biggest, baddest machine on the planet. Didn't take long for that to change, thanks to Arctic Cat! :D

Mine's been playing the role of a tractor more than a toy the past 4 years or so. Can't recall how many years it's been since I WASHED it .... :lol:

Smitty,
My wife wanted a Polaris, but i couldnt pass up the price on the cat. They wanted 7 for a used sportsman, i bought the arctic cat bran spankin new for less than that. My motor was made by suzuki and hands down they make the most reliable off road atv machines. So far the only issue I have had with the cat is 2 times now my fuel lines have dryrotted? At least thats how they look when i had to change 'em. Couldnt pull gas with the vaccum pump so a little looky looky and found'em suckin out the sides. Gotta love our current "gasoline" standard. And a battery went to *censored*.Oh and nothing beats a nice 6 maybe 6.5 gal tank when hitten trails either. :flex:

Yeah, my ol' man bought one in '07 - the 400. First thing I said was his engine looked exactly like the one in my old DRZ400S. Upon closer inspection I realized it was indeed built by the same company.

His tank is about 5 gallons on that 400. I've got an 800, and my tank is nearly HALF that! About 2.5 gallons. I piss through fuel like crazy. She's a thirsty bitch! :lol: 40 to 50 miles is about all I'm good for on a long trail ride. Could probably get more if I kept my thumb out of the throttle .... but if I wanted to do that I would've bought a 250. ;)
