On the left is Ben White, EZGO Textron and David Funk, President of SORBAcsra is on the right.
EZGO Textron has generously provided us with the use of a fully outfitted electric Bad Boy Off Road side-by-side UTV vehicle (model Recoil iS) to help with some of our more intensive trail work (transporting bridge and armoring materials among other things). We are happy to have the opportunity to explore a good option for some of the more difficult material movement issues we have.
We will have it at BikeFest, come on out and check it out!
