Up for a ride? There's a group ;) going to ride in Ocala on Feb 21 and then Hardrock on Feb 22. Anyone up for the ride? They are camping on the 21st in the ONF. I'll probably ride one if not both these days but doubt I'll camp.

lol, thats because it was cold in the morning! lol. Ive got a few little strips but not too bad. Wax will take them out. The new guy that joined our club with his big black JK wasnt so lucky. I was sitting to the side of him and the sun was reflecting down the side of his Jeep. WOW! That thing looked like it had been thru one of those automatic car washes that had rocks stuck in the brissles. Man it was striped.

black is probably like my green..when it's dirty, itlooks like you're going to have a billion scratches...you get home and wash it and you find maybe 3 or 4.

lol at least he better hope so.

Most the trails are wide. We chose to go off the beaten path to have more fun than we were having.
