Hello all,

Well after years of riding pleasure I traded "Peral" [05 Heritage] for a Polaris Ranger side by side 4x4. My son and I just purchased a hunting lease and needed transportation to places in the woods and to haul tree stands, deer feeders and whatnot. I loved Peral and miss her dearly. I could feel this coming for a while with the increase in traffic and scoot to wildlife crashes in my area. My wife wasn't even an issue and told me it was my decision and whatever I chose to do was fine with her and that in the future when we can see ourselves clear if I decided to get another bike that's fine with her.[what a trooper] Meanwhile we are enjoying the ranger and never realized how many steps one of those things can save you in a days time. So until im back on two wheels again I will continue to keep up with all of you here on the forum.

How you spend your family time is your call. Being a hunter myself, I get the trade off. Good luck to you and your family in the woods and enjoy the time together. In the end, it's all we got.

Have fun and shoot straight. Enjoy your son's time. I love hunting but anymore it's mostly a solo hunt for me unless a riding buddy of mine goes. Next year my daughter will be with me. We'll see what happens.

thanks to all for your kind words, and I will enjoy my family time and it will be time well spent. I have 3 grand children and plan to introduce them to the outdoors and the art of hunting as soon as it can be accomplished in a safe manner. Thanks again from everyone, ride safe and keep the shiny side up.

Regards, "Easy"

I grew up in Central Florida - east Orange County, near UCF. As the area became more congested I gave up riding. It was just too crazy. After Disney arrived, Central Florida was awash in tourists who were terrible drivers, the elderly driver population exploded and road construction could not keep up with the traffic. It was just too dangerous to ride, in my opinion.

After I moved from Orlando to Western North Carolina, I got back into riding. There are thousands of miles of near unpopulated country and mountain roads. When I go back to Orlando every few years, I am amazed that anyone would ride on those roads. The emerging Hispanic population makes the old folks look like good drivers in comparison.

It's always hard for me deciding what I need between the bikes and the hunting. Find I'm doing more bike stuff and some of the gear crosses over.

Lots of luck to you and good times ahead!

Enjoy that time with your son, I wish my son and I had more to do together. He is home from grad school right now and he and I will go work out at the gym and then go shoot later on this afternoon at a friends farm who has a skeet set up and a pistol range too. All the time I spend riding though is just about me... wife and son not really into it at all.

I go hunting also, and I think that spending that kind of quality time with your son at this time in his life is waaaay more important than going on a cruise on a bike in your spare time!
Enjoy it you only live once!
