ABC sells a Midland quite often for $25-$30 that's small enough to fit in one of the heater deflectors

We will be on mostly legal forest roads, and some paved or gravel roads in between the trails, a couple of the trails are overgrown with brush and are tight. I've never had a bike in the group so I can't tell you how enjoyable that will be, we travel on the trails of an average speed of 10 -12 mph.

Ive been on the big rapids trails before, with my fullsize chevy, a f150, and a 98 ram, and they all fit. Yes, the branches are hanging out pretty far, so a few light scrapes will probably occur, but a fullsize dodge wouldnt have a problem.
