Srb sxs 2014

Electronic fuel injection produced effortless starts, even after hibernating in sub-zero temperatures in my garage during the "Polar Vortex" in the Northeast this winter.

Throttle response was crisp and the increased power was noticeable, especially when swatting the GO pedal.

The dump bed is able to haul 600 pounds and dumps easily from either side of the bed, although the dump handle was tricky to find at first.

From a safety standpoint, EPS -- now standard on 2014 Teryx models -- is probably the greatest safety enhancement seen in the industry in recent years, especially on machines like the Teryx that weigh in excess of 1,550 pounds.

The 2014 Teryx is powered by a more potent version of Kawasaki's venerable 90-degree V-twin engine.

Marketed as an 800cc (it's technically 783cc), the new engine is 26 percent more powerful, has 12 percent more torque, and is 20 percent more fuel efficient than the previous 750cc engine.

Very hipster and a bit touristy but very catered to serious hikers from the Appalachian Trail.

I recorded some ambiences that night and the next day before heading out.The information is in the visuals but the EMOTIONS are in the sound.The past 5 months I've been doing some traveling and posting some of my ambiences in previous posts.They are pretty similar to my Texas soundscapes but it was difficult to avoid the street performers and live music bars in both states.These ambiences will continue as I continue impromptu trips like these and in the meantime, hopefully I'll find the time to put together my sounds for Dallas, Fort Worth and Sao Paolo, Brazil.Before I found time to put together my Fort Worth and Dallas Soundscapes, I took an impromptu quick trip to North Carolina to hike the Appalachian Trail.
