Hello all, new to the forum joining a couple days ago. Now a proud new Kodiak owner. Pulled the trigger today and brought home a black Kodiak 700 SE. Gonna hit the Coastal Mountains tomorrow and take the new machine on its first ride that is not in a parking lot! I use to have a 2009 Grizzly 700 SE, so I'm looking forward to see/feel the differences. I put a few accessories on the quad from my past ride and will post pics in the applicable section. I look forward to being a contributing member of this forum giving and getting info from the masses. Have a great day! :wink2:

Congratulations and have fun on your first Coastal Mountain ride with your new Kodiak 700!
Wouldn't say no to a few pictures and maybe a video of your ride. :wink2:

Those are some amazing views, and nothing like what i've seen of B.C. before in other photos!

Did you guys happen to spot any other ATV riders while out?

We ran into 4 other quads and three side by sides. Lots of people were camping along the river with quads at their sites. Must have seen at least 6 groups with impromptu shooting ranges setup. Maybe zeroing to hunt?

I haven't camped from the quads yet, however we have talked about trying it. There are natural hot springs that are a 2 hr quad ride away that people camp at. We might give it a try next spring/summer.

Harrison Hot Springs I assume?

I've heard mixed reviews on the, so it seems like it probably depends more so on your expectations than on whether the springs and resort itself is nice or not.

Harrison Hot Springs is a commercialized town. I was referring to Sloquet Hot Springs. They are located 80 KM down old logging roads. Need extra fuel and overnight stuff. Very austere, way out in the bush. It will be a next summer or spring trip.

There are naturally heated Hot Springs throughout BC. Ya just need a means to get to them. Most are too hot to just roll into, so people divert streams of cold water to make the perfect mix. Sloquet is naturally heated and well East of Whistler, you drive south from Pemberton or North from Harrison. Your so far in the woods you "got to come out of the woods to hunt"! Its a ways down some de-commissioned Forrest Service Roads. Were lucky to have thousands of Miles of old logging roads through very scenic locations to play on. At all different elevations. Rains a bunch here though. So you have to take the good with the bad!

The spring looks amazing! At least from what I can see on google images. Going to be a great trip in the spring or summer. Probably better in the summer so you don't freeze coming out of the warm water.

That sounds like a nice getaway from the city. Have yet to see a hot spring or a spring period!
