We have the incredible opportunity to head back to California and run the famous dunes at Glamis. We are going to be in the all new 2019 YXZ, and the 2019 YXZ with the turbo! Can’t wait.
It doesn’t stop there. Yamaha is also going to have us running the new YFZ450 and the Raptor700. Anyone that knows me knows I’m a huge raptor fan, and I can’t wait to put one back in the sand!
2019 YXZ1000R SS
Since 2016 I’ve heard everyone say how ‘west coast’ the YXZ is. Being a PA and WV rider, I never really understood what challenges machines face in the west. The all new 2019 YXZ takes to the sand like a fish to water and next week is going to be awesome.
Turbo version is here!
The turbo is something that I’ve often wondered why would anyone need THAT much HP? When you get to the left coast you understand why. The ground gives way underneath you. It robs your horsepower from the first blip of the throttle. We got to see the turbo kit in Johnson Valley late last year but I’m really looking forward to running that machine.
The new 2019 YXZ1000R has been optimized to offer coast-to-coast pure sport performance in nearly any environment – from open desert to tight wooded trails…Steve Nessl, Yamaha
Thankful for the opportunity.
Mostly I’m just thankful for the opportunity to be able to ride these machines and offer my insight on them for our readers and facebook group members.
It’s been a while since I’ve been on a sport quad other than my raptor for a quick trip to the store or something in WV but I really look forward to this, and my son is very upset I can’t bring him to run the YFZ450 his favorite ATV of all time.
You will hear more from me next week.
