I agree Highlander. I found out today that the Rincon I looked at on Ebay was a clone auction. This guy near Tampa cloned the auction. I looked at completed items and what do I find? The real auction already done. Same pics just different seller. I know if I buy on Ebay it will be cash after I look at the bike in person and we will go to tax collector.Be careful guys. I want all my Scrub friends on good bikes.

Thanks Scrub,

I think when I bought mine it was before those m f'ers got a chance to learn how to scam on Ebay. I looked at a rancher once and the guy sends me an email saying he is in the service stationed in Italy. Told me to send him like 2k for this new bike via Western Union. Just to pass this on Ebay says never pay W U. It's not meant to pay for auctions and if you get scammed they won't intervine. I guess that the best bet is if you buy off Ebay make sure it's a local thing or close enough to drive and check it all out. One more thing. I know a lot of people sell things on here. If you sell an enclosed trailer or bike, make sure you go to the local tax collector office and get the item in your name that day with the seller. I've heard of some people who have bought things and a few days or weeks later they go to register it and the seller has a lien on it or something that can jeopardize your ownership. So best thing is to stand in front of a tax clerk and do the money, title work and bill of sale right there. Not trying to be a know it all but these days you can never be sure. And whoever the guy is who asked if I'm a scammer, the answer is no. I'm just a guy who likes riding at Scrub and having fun dude.

Man I looked at some quads on Ebay and found some $5,000.00 bikes for like half price. I mean a 800 Polaris 05 model for 2 grand. They all have this message bull crap that says you have to be pre-approved bidder. I got an email from Ebay after I asked a seller if 1 bike was really that price. Ebay said it could be scammers trying to just get email addresses. I know it's hard for them to find scammers with all they do. I bought my 2000 Rancher ESP 4x4 on Ebay back in 03. It only had 50 miles on it. A man in Pompano had 3 identical bikes he bought for his grandkids who live in Ohio. They didn't come enough so he sold them. I just wanna see if anybody else has come across this. I'm looking for a bigger quad like a Honda Rincon or Foreman 4x4 if anybody has one. Oh by the way the guy selling this bike didn't respond. I think they call that phishing when these guys do this. I guess now everybody can laugh at me for thinking you can get a bike so cheap. I got mine for $2,500 though and it was prolly a 4k bike new at least so I felt I did ok. One thing if I do buy one of these so called good deals is only get one where I can pick it up and the seller get's the cash on delivery and the sell is legit on Ebay.
829  General / Open Discussion / Any new news from Scrub trails this weekend on: January 16, 2006, 10:20:00 PM
I went to Osceola rather than Scrub to see what else is out there. Different terrain but trails marked good. Dang I'm glad I got 4x4. The area I rode was muddy as hell. I read last week about some of ONF being closed to OHV's. I agree with the areas with water that don't need to be torn up but we aren't hurting those old fire break and logging trails. When we went down New Years we saw areas where the clear cut was. Now don't tell me we are hurting crap. I have ridden in ONF for 3 years and I've seen how after it rains you can't tell an ATV has even been there. ONF is a pretty place and all but it is not a pristine piece of wetland. Another thing that's gonna get us thrown out is the trash in the woods. We took some bags out and cleaned up some stuff. The bad thing is most of it's recyclable. It's not just ATV people tearing stuff up. The hunters do plenty as well. I've seen plenty of placed tore up by hunters. My idea is make all south of powerline OHV and north be hunting. That way we can all have a fair area.

Forgot to say that most of the trails I went on had a lot of water. My daughter and I did our fair share of propping legs on fenders. Glad I didn't get stuck. Nextel works good at Osceola but dang where u gonna find somebody. I did take the GPS and another thing is the trails were marked good as to where you can and cannot go. Hopefully if the trail system at Scrub is put in it will be marked well. If people can't follow the easy sign system like Osceola then they can go home. I hate seeing what some clowns have done to the areas around scrub. I'm in to ATV'ing for the long haul and want ONF to be open for all to enjoy. It's a free 4 all right now but if we get together and act responsible I think we can keep a good thing. ONF is a privilage to us, not a right.

I'm a regular visitor and just signed up so hope I'm doin this right. I was down at Scrub on New Years. I hope things stay cool down there. We have been going there for 3 years and enjoy it a lot. Took my daughter to Osceola today. Man what a different type of terrain. My 350 Rancher 4x4 got her done!!!!. I was only rider there I think in the Quail Management area. If anybody knows better places let me know.
