Default Fat tire mountain biking

I got hooked on a new hobby this summer, single track mountain biking with a 2016 Specialized Fatboy Trail. I've been on a road bike for years and in June started hitting the single track trails with some buddies on a std. mountain bike. After watching how much the fat bikes excelled in traction for climbing, cornering, roots and rocks here on the bluff country single track I had to have one and I love it! Plus, I'll be able to rock it all winter long This somewhat reminds me of a dirt bike, wider bars and for how fast you can blast thru a corner and not wash out unlike a normal mtn. bike. I only ride it on trails and off road, other bikes are better suited for road use obviously. It has a 1 by drive train, Bluto suspension fork, Hyd. disc brakes, dropper seat post and 4.6" tires.

Bear with me, as I suffer from GHF, or as my wife calls it, gotta have fun.
I have become reacquainted with my 98' GT Karakoram mountain bike this year, A friend picked up a used Gary Fisher and I don't like to ride alone for safety reasons so. I like to fish-ALOT, this is not in any way species specific, and I love getting outside in January to ice fish! Been Kayak fishing as much as possible in my new 10' Old Town this season-Amazing! Which brings me to my favorite-Canoe camping, nothing better than paddling/fishing all day and sandbar camping/cooking at night, wake, rinse, repeat. Also enjoy shooting sports, Squirrel hunting and whitetail deer-archery and slug. Enjoy walking/exploring also but the bicycle has cut into that as of late.

Gosh...other hobbies? I've tried hunting, golf, fishing, mt bike riding....the list goes on, but I have yet to find anything that thrills me as much as riding a motorcycle. I recently picked up a KLR650, and really enjoy getting out on the back roads here in rural KY and watching the fall season come into full color.

I just joined the gang. Got this to replace an old specialised dual suspension mountain bike and absolutely loving it. Heaps more traction in the snotty stuff, and just as quick as the old bike.

It's the way to woods ride on a pedal bike! If anyone's on the fence about one of these for trail riding or snow riding, rent or borrow one, it will change your mind.

From my work trade you don't need to guess very long where my user name came from.
Was doing a job at a local college and the day care center was beside where we were working, had a bunch of the kids come out and sing a song for me...it was "Boom Boom the blaster man"....that stuck with me so I used it.
My days with explosive also help pick my username.
