Sounds like a great day of riding. If you don't come home sore, you didn't ride hard enough. A couple of Advils and you'll be good to go next weekend.

I know after my first ride I was pretty sore too. I have only went riding twice on it. I just got mine Friday before last. I have yet to experience all the power though. It was hard for me to hook up in the sand so my wheels kept spinning on take offs and when I goosed it. Next weekend I'm hitting the trails. I'm sure it will be night and day difference comared to the dunes.

This past weekend was my first ride. (Sat. and Sun.) Let me tell you I was sore. But then to make things worse Monday night I started running a bad fever that lasted till Wed. night. So this has been a really bad first week. :(

The first time I rode, I rode for like 8 hours straight, and came back with huge blisters on the exact same spots, on both hands. Didnt have gloves >.<

The first ride is all memories. I still remember my first ride. It was a blast. Then I just stared at the raptor because I still couldn' belive I got one. Glad yours was safe.

I remember mine like it was yesterday.
We went to an area in Hesperia CA that we found on the web. I let my friend go for a spin on it since his chain broke 30 min into the ride, he was gone forever. I was getting worried, it turns out a helicopter clocked him going 60 and 2 cop cars came- they threatend to take my quad and auction it, and handed him a nice pamplet that said "ride where you like, loose your bike" ...turns out it was a closed area. After he explained we drove 2 hours to get there and found it on a list of riding areas and advised them had we knowen we woulda went somewhere else they let him go. My tags we in my pocket, so he had no proof it wasn't stolen,and he had no ID on him, And since he is mexican the first thing they asked was "what gang are you with". Needless to say as soon as he got back we loaded up and got the flup outa there. It wasn't a very fun first ride. Well the 30 min of riding I did was fun, but I hadn't even made my first payment. so I woudla been crying pretty bad if I lost my quad....

My first ride on my raptor was in my neighborhood. Exhaust was stock at the time so no one even noticed I was out there till I started dragging the grab bar on the road looking for the balance point on the damn thing :lol:
