No Ice to do doughnuts on here. But lots of rocks and sand.
Wife headed south of the border for the day and left me alone to find something to do

It's a BooB (read the knobbies) TerraFlex or as I have been informed and now witnessed Terror -flex . I hate it other then the fact it is great for deep sand. The big HP with this tire works great for riding those twisty wash's. Rode some crap today and it was so sweet to come out of a turn and twist it up in second gear and get right back on top. Other then that it sucks on the road, gravel, and hard pack. I was happy to see after 163 miles off road, I came home and there were still knobs on it. I wrote up a little thread on it two days ago.

Shit man, glad you survived that one.

The highest point in Florida is Brighton Hill.. 345 feet high (or half as high as the Four Seasons Motel in Miami)

When It happened I was too busy being mad at the Driver of the Car. Then I pulled off the freeway and waited for him and he didnt show. After about ten minutes I started shaking. No stains but a LOT of adrenaline. I have never even heard of a similiar occurence where the rider stayed up.
