ATV update

ATV on trailer being tied down with ratchet straps

Took the ATV in for some repair work today.

The brakes stopped working and I couldn't determine what's wrong.

Figured out it will drive off a trailer this size with no problem, but ramps are needed to get it on. We used a couple of 2x6's, but might think about getting some proper ramps in the future so we can drive it up into the bed of the truck and transport it without the trailer.
