Talking Winchester Bay Oregon

Spent Wednesday through Saturday riding out there and basically 10.5 hrs of driving Tuesday and today (sunday). The weather was awesome, the place I stayed at was top notch (discovery point resort) since they had full hook ups and also separate bathrooms and showers for no extra cost.

Anyways to the rhino part, had a small hiccup in the first hour of riding, the fuel filter was plugged up pretty bad from what looked like plastic from the tank. Went into town got a new filter and problem went away. Only thing I couldn't figure out is a small backfire when I turn it off sometimes. I also rented some paddles from Paul at Harts Rhino Motorsports. They were mudsharks in the rear, and dunestarts in the front with ITP Beadlocks. Aired the rears to 5psi and the fronts to 3psi and pointed and went. There were a few hills that I couldn't get up such as Banshee hill since the sand was extremely loose. But I wanted to see if paddles are all the hype and yes they were. My first run after I got the fuel filter fixed I aired the stockers down and gave it a go, then tryed the paddles and night and day. All day I had a huge grin on my face and so did my wife. There was a guy out there in a teryx that had paddles in the rear and CDI and exhaust tip and kept up with him everywhere he went. Good Times, I think the wife is going to let me get mid travel now.

Tryed to go to coos bay down the way but was too lazy to pack up and go for the day, but the wife says we will be going next year.

Glad you had a great time Loco! Using a set of Skat Trak and some smoothies, the rhino will be better off with that combo. Do you have pictures to share with us?
I know some of the members here are planning trip up there in April.

It would be great if you did. What's the travel time from Winchesters to Coos bay?

Travel time I would say is about 20 minutes or so. Wish I had more days to ride but I had too much fun in winchester and didn't have anyway to get my rhino down to coos without taking the whole toyhauler. Here are some pictures,

Views are awesome, this was on top of Banshee Hill


If you get a chance to go down to bandon, which is like 1/2 hour south of Coos bay and go to the wild animal refuge. Here my wife is holding a baby cougar.

I would love to make that trip, but it might be right in the middle of my busy season for landscaping. As it gets closer i'll know better but it would be fun to have all you guy up there.
