We took the muddy dog for a test run in the wild...
Everything I wanted. The Bumper buddy worked great, then dog ran just right.
With the 4wheeler in back it did not squat as bad, still need airbags but it will work till I get some.
We put 15 miles on it with out a glitch.
I did fine however I need the brake up by the hand grip and I need to make straight handle bars.

Fantastic, D you are a mechanical fabrication genius.

seems K was outrunning the quad.

Great video.  You can film and drive the quad on a bumpy trail at the same time.

I need to beg a ride on the dog...maybe to go down and back at that PD town in the valley with all the gumbo-mugbo stuff????  Remember you never goit me a ride on the Air boat-mobile.

Thanks for the video.

Are they still CB's tracks?  He is smiling.

How do the snow-machine track wear on those stone/gravel roads?????

Yes the Johnson track and Bogie system.
Cant run off road with anything in Montana on state land so you gota walk in to shoot.
We kept the speed down you will never be able to open it wide on two tracks and live to tell about it.
WAY plenty of power to clime anything you feel you need to clime.
Just a side note if we wanted to make it a racer there is plenty of HP just change the gear I know if everything held together it would do over 35mph.
As far as wear I don't know, the track is just three strips or bias ply rubber with carbide cleats riveted to it to hold it together. It shows NO sign of any use yet. Clap

Very impressive D. I can see that being really useful. 

Can you go off road on snow? They have different rules here for snowmobiles. You can't take a four wheeler off road in most places but you can take a snowmobile off road.

If you listen real close about the :30 second mark I think I heard "Hold my beer and watch this"

LOL

Well the muddy dog is working so well I had to do some up grades.
The handle bars I had where from a rototiller and not very comfortable to hang on to and steer. The brake was just a leaver down on the shank of the Handle bars, worked so good You would fall off trying to use it gently.
SO...
New bars straight across a little wider and slightly swept to the back. Now you can lean on them or pull your self back on.
I switched the position of the accelerator from finger pull to thumb push, nicer.
I put the brake on the grip part of the new bars. Now you can use it as needed not just ON or OFF.
Seems much better all round.

the handle bar UPgrade looks to be a good idea. The brake system too!
Does that type of machine have to be licensed like an ATV or cycle or snowmobile??????????

I don't think it can be Licensed as anything.
I'll never be able to drive it on county ,city, or us roads. I'll have to get a "trails" permit $25 to run on ATV trails, AND a snowmobile pass $25 to run it on snowmobile trails. I should not need anything but a citified spark arrester to run on BLM roads.Shocked

Actually it is a brake handle off a bike. Plenty long to use your palm too.
