Usually the stereo suffices, but these guys were especially stubborn. The guy in the rear heard us and let us pass instantly,  but the kid on the Rincon didn't know what to do, and the old duffer in the RZR probably couldn't hear anything at all! Grin
It was all good though. We were in no big hurry. I mainly just got tired of hearing that poor Rincon trying so hard to get out of it's own way. Rolling on floor laughing

one of the guys that I normally go to moab with had a Rincon, he was always going like a bat out of hell, even in places where i'd think what the hell are you thinking. then I found out that with the rincons transmission and gearing that's pretty much how you had to ride, it didn't like to lug down and torque over things.

Nice vid! Too bad you got stuck behind the low & slow crew.

Looks like we were in the same general area over Easter weekend. We were listening for loud music while on the trails..  Rolling on floor laughing

Yes, and that three speed tranny with a torque converter robs a ton of power from an already underpowered engine.  Hp at the wheels is in the range of other quads with engines several hundred cc's smaller. Shocked
But I do like the way they handle. Those long a arms and low slung stance make it sporty.
