You shouldn't have a problem with a cT. I did a Jersey Devil Hunt where a fellow showed up with a 18" wheel Bavarian Classic and street tires and he got through every mud hole we hit.

Down here it’s more sand than mud. Last year all of us that did the trail ride (there was a hard packed dirt / pavement road ride at the same time) had 2wd.... and we all had it engaged all day. Probably would be possible with 1wd, but 2wd definitely helps.

I’m sure Bruce will chime in with a definitive answer.

Yes, there are plenty of routes your CT will have fun on.

Hi everyone! It's getting closer to that time to tour the largest National Forest east of the Mississippi. For those who did not attend last year, we will have a local ride to Pit Masters BBQ on Thursday night. The rest of the meals will be prepared at the camp site. Please give some suggestions as to what you all would like for breakfast and supper. Also by the end of this month I need to get some idea of how many are coming for logistical reasons. Remember the campsite is already paid for, so it is no cost to you. Donations to off-set the food costs are accepted once you arrive. I'm excited to see you all for the ride, lets make it more memorable than last year.

I’ll be there with my youngest daughter (8yo) and my parents. We will be bringing a 5th wheel.


Won’t be coming in till Friday though.

Ladies & Gentlemen, recent health concerns related to the coronavirus has raised the question of whether or not to have the FUBAR this year.

I am asking for input from those who are/were planning on attending this year. PLEASE PLEASE give your opinion. I'm good with still having it.

I’m in for sure. We will be in the woods all by our lonesome. I’d say if you are sick or been around someone who is sick then don’t come. Possibly plan to do all meals there instead of any rides to restaurants.

That being said we will have to see how it progresses. We may not have a choice (as in campsite may close down).

Too early to tell.

I"m going to sit this one out. As of today, FL has closed the State Parks. I suspect other closings will follow.

I just got off the phone with Bruce and he asked me to post here for him because his computer is down.

This years FUBAR rally is officially cancelled.

The plan is to just postpone till next year.

Everyone stay safe :cheers:

With a heavy heart, I must present the bad news. Due to COVID-19 Virus the 2020 FUBAR is forced to be postponed until Spring of 2021.
At present all camp grounds and recreational areas of the Ocala National Forest are closed until further notice. As of today the Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis has issued a mandatory stay at home order for the next 30 days.

Thank you Chris for getting the word out yesterday for me, just got my computer back. I'm presently working on getting the new dates for 2021.

Morning folks! Well the 2nd Annual F.U.B.A.R. has come and gone with the government cancelling it due to Covin-19. However you can't keep a Ural from having it's fun. The F.U.B.A.R. has already been rescheduled for April 15-18, 2021. So add it to your calendar. I'll post the updates later. Mean while ride safe and enjoy going where Harleys can't.
