    Mud, Water, Rednecks oh my

    Heading to the Pioneer takeover next weekend in Tennessee. Stock Bighorns - how much water am I safe driving in/through? Did not find much on this searching the forums.
    Anything I can do (besides a snorkel kit) like run vent lines?
    Love riding the Dunes but this trip has me a bit nervous. Both buddies going with me have Pioneer 1000's. Never done rocks before and we are hitting something called "top of world" trail.
    I think I will be using Low for the 1st time.....any advice from you rock and mud guys will be appreciated.

    It seems that I wouldn't want to go higher than the air filter that is in the rear wheel well. It has a dirt release nipple on it that I have never heard to be sealed enough to keep water out if submerged. Maybe it is ok if you put it through a deep water hole for a minute or two but I wouldn't want to submerge it for too long.

    Short of snorkeling everything, you might as well rake your chances on leaving it alone and be mindful of how deep something is.

    Sooooo Iím pretty sure you just called me a redneck.... we ride there all the time. Donít worry about the mud thereís usually a way around the it. The trail you are talking about has some challenging parts but nothing that canít be done. Iíd be surprised if the many pioneers make it though. Around here most pioneers stay on the farm and strictly for work. Water is a non issue unless itís poured the rain. Keep in mind that in our area 90% of the trails are either up the mountain or down the mountain. Water canít pool up on inclines. Windrock is an awesome place to ride but they check coolers for alcohol and do not put up with any crap. They will kick you out if you donít follow their rules. Have fun . Many YouTube videos to watch if you want to see what you are getting into

    Hope this is not too late to reply. I bought the 64" XMR for the purpose of living in mud and water. Last summer I had the X3 in water so deep I couldn't see the stick shift and the water mark on my shirt was at my chest.... Nothing is as fun as muddin'.

    Best advice I can give is don't tear into every water and mud hole like an angry bull, slow and steady is the best way, for many reasons, 1) you have no clue what is hiding under the water or mud, could be a stump, log, rock. 2) if you power into the mud hole and get stopped, you are pretty much pooched and will have to get towed out, if you go in slow and steady and if the bike stops, you can easily back out. 3) if you tear into the hole there is a good chance you are going to leave ruts for the next guy which sucks for them.

    Before you go into a water hole pick a good line, sometimes that is hard to do but if you aren't sure, let the more experienced drivers go through first, or let the rigs that are built for mud go through first. 4 Low tends to be the magic setting for every thing mud but remember not to goose the throttle if you are using 4 Low. Old timer once told me if you are using 4 low before you go into the hole, you probably shouldn't go into the hole

    Buy a bandana for your mouth and nose, you are going to breath in lots of mud and dirt.

    Stock bighorns are the jack of all trades when it comes to trail riding, they are not the best at every thing but they are not the worst at anything. I had Bighorns on my quad and I went through everything the purpose built mud quads went through, with a little effort.

    Have fun.
