Yeah..... no one out here in the sticks of S.W. Oklahoma, where quads out number bikes probably 50-1, uses the term ATV either.


That kind of went out with the three wheelers/trikes. .......... Do you call three wheelers "trike bikes"?

Don't feel bad, where I live they call quads "bikes" which really makes no sense at all.

To all those still waiting for more pictures of Antarctica. I returned to Australia and headed to South America almost straight away.
Heading back to Australia next month to start my planned RTW bike trip.
