We are enjoying the beautiful changing of the leaves here in the Southeastern Kentucky mountains. If you have never seen the mountains this time of year, you really should make the trip. The hills really show off in the Autumn, and one of the very best ways to see this area is out on the trails. Riding a four wheeler or Side by Side has quickly become one the leading activities around this area....and for great reasons! The best reason being more fun with your friends and family! With the newer styles, whole families can go out on trails now. There is an ATV for all size riders and the quickly popular "side by sides" let you bring everyone along, as well as a cooler for lunch later!
If you ride a UTV (also called a side by side), you can take a passenger with you or even the kids too! There are many options to choose from with all three of our brands of side by sides. Just released in October, Kawasaki just came out with their own four seater, the 2012 Teryx4. It is the hottest thing to hit the UTV market from Kawasaki this year! The all new Teryx4 vehicles are due to arrive any day in the store and we are taking reservations for them now!
The very popular Polaris line offers UTVs that offer space for four riders as well, but Polaris really knows how to bring the speed into the market. A local favorite is the Polaris RZR line up. Whether it's the speed of the RZR XP 900, or maybe you would like the all new trail size Ranger RZR 570, or taking the whole crew out in the Ranger RZR 4 for the day...Polaris knows how to pack a punch!
If you are more of an ATV, four wheeler, type rider then you need to take a look at some of the newest from Yamaha for 2012. Yamaha has Grizzly tough ATVs that work hard and play harder! If you are looking for comfort while out on the trail, try one of the Touring models from Polaris. Kawasaki introduced a new mid-size ATV in October for 2012; the all new Brute Force 300 is the perfect size for a wide range of riders and at a great introduction price range. It can work hard all day on the farm and play out on the trails with the big dogs too. YPK Motorsports of Jackson, KY has every size of ride imaginable! We have tiny ATVs and kid sized RZRs! We have huge ATVs and everything in between! Come in and see what fits your family's needs.
Whatever your choice, ATV or side by side, just get out there and enjoy the ride. We offer great options on financing and can help your family get ready for the adrenaline induced fun! Stop by the YPK Motorsports website or YPK store today and check out all the new toys for 2012.

A little recap, we started the summer off with a Polaris Summer Sales Event here at the store at the end of June. Then came July, and we were off to the Polaris trade show in Nashville and it did not disappoint. The new 2012 models unveiled at the show were amazing and the custom jobs on some of the RZRs were inspiring! (Got lots of great ideas if you are interested!!) They also had two great musical acts perform....The Zac Brown Band and Justin Moore, and they were incredible! All three of our brands (Yamaha, Polaris, and Kawasaki) released their new 2012 lineups and we are thrilled with some of the new upgrades to the vehicles. Faster, stronger, better seems to be the theme with all of them this year!
However, I think the most fun we had all summer was at the annual Crockettsville event here in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky in August. It was the fourth annual Crockettsville Charity Concert and Trail Ride this year, and it was a huge success! YPK Motorsports is a very proud sponsor of this event every year and we are continually pleased with its success. The entire weekend raises money to support the Buckhorn Children's Home in Buckhorn, KY. We had a blast at the huge YPK tent talking to all of the folks about the Polaris vehicles that we brought with us to show off. The trail ride on Sunday was fantastic. We had good weather and a great turnout! If you want to see the awesome pictures from the 2011 Crockettsville Event, check'em out here.
With all of that craziness, it is no wonder summer flew by. We were blessed to have had a fantastic summer business wise, and we are excited about the Fall riding season that is creeping up on us in the next couple of weeks. It is time to change the oil, buy cool weather gear, and get ready for the trails. Camping and hunting season is here and we have some awesome Camo vehicles in stock that will get the job done and do it with style. Camo is HOT this year!! Now, New for 2012, Polaris even lets the kids get in on the camo action....and it is too cute! Polaris has the only kid sized UTV on the market with the RZR 170....and this year, Camo is king of all of the trails, big and small! We have one of these little things in the showroom and it is getting lots of attention!
Maybe you are a Yamaha Grizzly fan instead...we like this 2012 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4x4 in Camo. Or perhaps you prefer Kawasaki and need some room for the whole gang AND that big buck you are going to bag. Maybe the 2012 Kawasaki Mule 4010 is more your style...and yes, it comes in CAMO! Can you see a pattern here? If it comes in Camo from one of our brands....we have it and you need it! The prey won't see ya coming and whatever you choose to ride....you will do it in style.
Stop by our website, WWW.YPKMOTORSPORTS.COM, our YPK facebook page, or the store and check out all the new models in for 2012. We love what we do and we want to share our passion for riding with you!

At YPK Motorsports, we are so happy to have the warm sunshine and great weather return. We love to get out and ride and we know you do too. There are a few things to remember when you ride in the heat and sunshine. Unfortunately, you can easily dehydrate or overheat if you are riding for long periods of time in hot weather. We want to offer you a few tips to prevent anything like a heat stroke or illness that could occur with the rising temperatures.
Tip #1: Some street bike riders may already know a great secret to keep cool during summer riding, but some may not. It may seem that it would be more comfortable to ride without your jacket when it is hot out, but it actually isn't....if you know the special trick. If you soak down your shirt with water before you button up your coat, the wind will actually act as an air conditioner and cool you off rapidly while in motion! This method actually offers a cooler ride than if you weren't wearing a coat at all! If you soak your shirt, your body is able to more easily disperse its heat. Be sure to have your coat loosened as much as possible (using buttons instead of zippers, if possible) so that air circulates creating a cooling system on your body as you roll on down the highway! A mesh protective jacket also aids in the cooling effect. We at YPK personally like the Icon Men's Arc Mesh jacket for its protective factors as well as its breath-ability. Stopping to re-wet your shirt every 30 minutes or so in extreme heat will keep you cool and safe.
Tip #2: Wear light colors. This includes your brain bucket! A light colored, full face helmet with a closed visor is actually cooler than an open one while on the move. Be sure to pick one with a full face sun visor and lots of ventilation areas. We like the AFX FX-100 Sun Shield Helmet. It comes in white and has lots of venting for a cooler head! Wetting your skull cap before putting on your helmet helps too!
Tip #3: Prevent Sunburn! Remember that you can still burn through lightweight fabrics. Be sure to wear a high SPF sunscreen and reapply throughout the day. Also, always pay attention to the areas often forgotten: between sleeves and gloves, back of the neck, throat areas, and if you have your jacket open...the v-neck area.
Tip # 4: WATER!! Drink it, as well as wear it! Be sure you are drinking water throughout your day of riding to prevent dehydration! We suggest a bag type water dispenser, such as the Thor Hydrant Hydration Pack. This will let you drink while on the move! If you decide to carry water bottles, be sure to stop about every half hour to rehydrate.
YPK Motorsports wants you to have a safe and super summer of riding. Be sure to always wear your helmet and stay cool.
