Re: Riding in South Florida

Nice ride at the AAOF corn beef and cabbage yesterday Saturday. We had great weather and a Beatiful day with some nice riding.

If you missed our St Pattys poker run with corn beef and cabbage, make sure to try and make it to the annual bbq in April.

Re: Duck hunting southern glades ? Anyone?

Great information. It's really appreciated. I'm excited to try and hunt close by. I know it's not the best duck hunting but it will be some fun.


I plan on scouting out the area if the cool weather kicks in right before it opens.

Thks!

If not your leaving torque on the table. The heads a have casting numbers that tells you if open or closed chamber. Piston...
