Well despite the 4" of snow we went off roading.

Had fun in a gravel pit used by ATVs etc. :rock:

Scared the @#$%^ sliding down a hill of mud. :icon_redface:

Here are the pictures and video.

The video will take a while to make and post.

Pictures:

Like this one because of the sticker and the reflected trees





Look at that kick donkey skid plate:


My favorite and hopefully a FOTM entry

^ The muddy hill was at another section of the road. It was exposed to more sunny light and thus was quite warm and had completed melted.
I asked my wife to stop filming because I was quite concerned we would slide right off the road into a ditch. The muddy road is all on video (no pics).
The incline of the hill was no more than 10 to 15 degrees but damn!!!!!

OT, but which hellas are those and did you have to make custom brackets to attach them to the basket or was that the factory provided mounts? How are they light wise? My friends fiance just destroyed my Light Force 170s so i am looking at possible alternatives. And nice pics for sure and eagerly awaiting the video :)

Thanks for the info on the brackets. Are you super pleased with the amount of light they throw out or do they leave you yearning a bit more?

One of these days I'm going to PM you for a little more info on what I still think is the best looking skid plate design for the SH.

Nice pics btw.
