Musicians took a hard hit: There is no question the entertainment industry was struggling to find a new normal during the shut down. Many musicians who were touring full time, suddenly found themselves adjusting to a digital world. Online music lessons, streamed shows and album sales were some of the many ways these musicians adapted. But nothing compares to playing for a live audience.
Some amazing material was created: Touring musicians found themselves at home with nothing but their instrument and a pen. Hard times and creativity often go hand in hand.
It feels good to dance: Lets face it, you were locked up too. Now that California is open, turn off netflix, put on your dancin’ shoes and go support live, original music.
The time is now: This past year we didn’t just face a pandemic, we were bombarded with political and social issues that will have a lasting affect. Think back to the great protest music of the 60’s and 70’s where artist such as Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix emerged. We are going to see some amazing new artists rise from these ashes.
We miss you: Live music is nothing without fans and people supporting it. It is hard to beat a room full of people all vibing to the same tune. We can’t wait to see you on the dance floor!

For the first 10 hours of driving, Kawasaki recommends avoiding continuous operation above half throttle. When we’re looking at this 2021 Kawasaki Brute Force 300 model with max speeds around 55 mph, half throttle would be around 25 mph. In other words, don’t go 30 mph for 5 minutes down the trail within the first 10 hours of operation. This is a great time for longer, adventures cruises, staying below 25mph. During this period, prolonged full throttle operation, or any condition which might result in excessive engine heating must be avoided to prevent long term damage to your ATV.
After the first 10 hours, experts recommend staying below ¾ throttle (40 mph) for prolonged operation. Full throttle operation can occur momentary (2-3 seconds max), which will not harm the engine. Each full throttle acceleration sequence should be followed with a considerable rest period by cruising at a lower rpm so the engine can rid itself of the temporary heat buildup. Once the machine has operated for 20 hours, Kawasaki considers this machine to be broken in, however still discourages prolonged full throttle operation to ensure a long, trouble-free life for your ATV. Now go have fun and let your buddies rip around on your new machine!
Pro Tip: When riding, always monitor the temperature gauge on the digital display. Rule of thumb; if it goes above 2 bars, reduce speed until the engine can cool itself and the temperature gauge decreases.
