Kawasaki Brute Force ATV Preview
Tuesday, April 21, 2009
Touring the Mines and Meadows facility was a blast on the 2009 Kawasaki Brute Force ATVs.
I just finished riding the biggest, baddest utility ATV Kawasaki has to offer. A day of riding through Mines and Meadows ATV Resort
in western Pennsylvania indicates that living with the Brute Force 750i isn’t as abusive as its name suggests.
The Brute Force 650 and Brute Force 650i were also on hand along with the Prairie 360 4x4. I hopped from one to the next, but spent the majority of time with my butt hang off the independent rear suspension of the 750. The V-Twin motor generates loads of torque which was great for clawing over the rocky black diamond trails and mobbing through rack-deep water. I was dying to get a shot at towing another vehicle, but those damn Kawi ATVs just wouldn’t get stuck, no matter how deep it got.
Why did Kawasaki
drag us all the way to Pennsylvania for an outing on the Brute Force quads? Where else can you ride through the absolute darkness of underground tunnels? Mines and Meadows ATV Resort is in cahoots with an adjacent property which has miles of sandstone mineshafts, a small portion of which accessible to OHV by guided tours. There’s even an underground lake!
Keep your eyes open for a full review of the Brute Force ATVs very soon and a feature story on Mines and Meadows to follow. Both are pretty cool.
