Thumbs up GR Westsider

That's right, the good side!

Ok, actually in Sparta on 12-Mile.
Left my treasured 96' Tahoe Sport after 10 yrs and jumped into a used 02 TJ Sport. Talk about a change of ride n pace! Anyway, finally use to the lack of space, power and all those reflections from the vertical windows and lovin the brick on wheels now. Anxious to remove my hardtop after i rig up some eyebolts in the garage rafters and the weather stops flip floppin.
Mileage does suck but dang this thing is fun to roll in.
Glad i don't live closer to Moab terrain, I'ld be broke!
I usually roll on my 99' Roadstar 1600 during the summer, the Tj got me thru the winter quite well. Top down and doors off should be closest to ridin the scoot as i can get in a 4 wheeler.
Looking to hook up with someone to show me a few local trails. I know they exist but are far n few around here.
TJ was stock from the dealer, 2" BB, 1.25 wheel spacers with 32x11.50's on Cannons now. Looking to do the JKS 1.25 BL next, as soon as i can dig up the scratch for a couple jack stands and floor jack.

Look foward to hooking up with some of you and discovering offroad.

I recommend hooking up with Two Trackers and their trail clean-up on April 21st.
(info located in front page picture post)
Great bunch of people, and they can pretty much tell you where all of the legal wheeling spots are on the West side.
