    Polar Bear rally was my first but wont be the last. Like the rest of the well deserved comments this was very well run and can't thank the CADS and especially Rich for putting on such a fun event. Every aspect from riding, to organizing and eating was perfect. Really enjoyed getting to meet many of the group and have to say my camp neighbors help make the trip ( except when they bust you for dumping your bike in camp :) )
    As a sponsor, I really appreciated the recognition given as well as how much I learned about this part of the motorcycle community and can't wait to be a bigger and better part of this event next year.
    Looking forward to a repeat on the Trans Fla ride in March.
    Thanks again to all !!!!!!!!!!!

    This was my first rally and WOW, what an experience! Thank you CADS for setting up such a fantastic event and somehow making owning a bike even more fun! :clap I'll for sure be back next year.

    Hi Guys,,, Thanks for putting this event together.

    I was the other winner of the BMW $100 certificate. I have no use for it being I own all KTMs and live 6 hours away. Sssoooo if anyone is interested in it at a discount... let me know.

    Awesome time! Thanks to everyone that put it together. GREAT event!

    Couple of stills from the gopro that I like. Love Ocala. Not enough space on the SD card though!

    I'll put together a video eventually. Never enough spare time! image.jpeg image.jpeg

    I also got a burst shot of ryan getting squirrelly on a mole hill. Haha maybe I'll post it after having following his jetski like bike around.

    I had a great time as usual, but this time I made it across that huge, rough, deep sand hill on my R1200GS!
    Came upon it unexpectedly in second gear. Kicked up to third and kept on full gas. Almost used a little KTM for traction as he turned into my path!
    No video of this!

    Those broken bike pics are hard to look at!
    Another big thanks to Kyle, Ari, and JD, everyone else who swarmed my bike and volunteered the use of their tools. Sorry my crappy skills held you all up.

    OK, I'm a total GoPro and Youtube noob, but here 'ya go:

    Any word on the guy PK and Scauuuught told us about who went down on a Tenere and insisted on riding home? Hope he heals up, sounded pretty bad by the time the story got back to camp.

    He took my number but I have not heard from him. He said he had broken his ribs before and that is what he felt like he did. He wanted to ride home, so he was ridden 2 up out of the woods and his bike ridden out to the street. PK, mentioned he was still in a lot of pain at that point too. He said he lived in Jax Beach. So if someone knows him, let us know how he is doing. Thanks,
