Hey Guys,

My name is Rob and I live in Reno, NV. My family calls me Wreckingball. Any one live near by? Well I'm 33, married and have a ten year old daughter. I am a Quality Control manager fro a company called Noth Sails, building sails for sail boats and racing yachts. 2 months ago I bought a used 2006 700 R. Have not ridin since my teens when i had a Honda CR250 dirt bike and the famous Honda ATC 3 wheeler 185 with the big ballon tires. My wife has a Polaris Razor and we all love to trail ride. I'm in remission from cancer (thank god) and now I'm enjoying life the best I can. I will eventually buy my daughter a quad, but not till I know she will be under control with it. She is like me, has no fear and does not realize she went pass the edge till it is to late. Anyways, I just like to ride and cruise, and of course show off. Bear with me if I ask a stupid question, I'm still learning my quad and want to upgrade the big 3 when i can afford it. Anyways, nice to meet you guys and hope we can meet someday.

welcome to the site. congrats on the remission from cancer. My best friend died last year from cancer. He had a rare form that has only been seen once or twice they said. He flew out to Indiana to see specialist to confirm the ppl from Georgia knew what they were talking about. He was 25 and had 2 children.
My partner in crime that i do painting with (www.bandndesigns.com) EVLLS1) lost his dad to cancer as well. Very bad thing to have to deal with. Glad all is well with you though. I know a few ppl that have survived and some that have not. I wear my LIVESTRONG bracelet daily and have not taken it off for about a year now.

Anywho welcome to the forum

Welcome to the site Baller... Congrats on beating cancer, it's a terrible disease that unfortuantly many of us have had a friend or family member not fair so well. Sounds like you're enjoying life again. :thumb:

As far as asking stupid questions, fire away. How the hell you think we all learned about our quads. I know it's cliche' but, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask. Take a look at the "How To" sections for helpful tips.

Oh, I'm beating the hell out of it. It's even beat me up once already. Use to the crashes though. I use to wreck all the time as a kid, of course that was on a Honda 3 wheeler. Congrats on your wife and you for helping her through those tough times. Anyways, thanks for the welcoming. i lookf forward to lots of laughs and learning from you guys.
