Matt’s Off-Road Recovery is at it again, this time posting a video of a job that took them down a trail that’s quickly becoming infamous in the off-roading world. Colorado’s Rattlesnake Gulch offers stunning scenery and great wheeling, but it has also gotten the better of multiple vehicles, including this Yamaha YZX1000R that Matt and his team set out to recover in a recent video.

The video takes us down the Rattlesnake Gulch trail with the MORR crew (dogs included) loaded up into the “Banana” Jeep XJ Cherokee. They arrive on the scene to find the Yamaha’s driver-side front A-arm destroyed and the clutch “gone.” As usual, the team jumps into action, and has the yellow UTV on its way back home in no time. Lizzie gets the joy of piloting the battered quad in tow, and there’s a good time to be had by all. Except maybe the Yamaha’s owner.

Matt could brush up on his UTV knowledge, as he calls the machine a “Yamaha T-X…or something… I don’t know, it’s a bunch of letters, it’s a side-by-side,” but the video serves as good entertainment and helps continue to showcase how well-equipped and talented the MORR team is. It’s a fun watch, as always.
