I saw that too when I was down there a couple of weeks ago. On a 2 lane road that goes between 95 and A1A right?

Hahahaha I'd been to that area(sebastian and north) of FL tons since about 1990 but never to Ft Pierce so I figured I'd give it a whirl. Was awesome! Stayed in the old part of the beach(non high rise) in a little place that let you have dogs and was cheap. Cool beach, got good surf, paddle boarding in the river was amazing as well! Shit, I wanna buy that place little Jim's bait and tackle!!! I think that's my new spot for quick FL trips! You in that area?

Yup, born and raised. I live down in Stuart now - better schools. North Jetty has some pretty good waves, then nothing till you get up to Sebastian Inlet and Spanish House. Also, on the south Beach you can run down to the Power Plant at Walton Rocks or further south to Jensen Beach and Stuart Rocks. Next time you come down give a shout and if you can catch these guys playing.

Can we change this thread to "defender sightings while doing important stuff."

With owner permission 100% of the time. Just the right thing to do.

Parked, in commute, and random shopping mall trucks are just sort of not fair to the owners...this thread may be getting used to assist in car theft(s)...do you guys want to have a stolen car's owner search this site, find pictures of his/her truck and then figure out a clever way to blame you...... It is just not fair to do that to people. Given what is going on in England (lots of theft), only a matter of time before people do it here...why help them?

Anything in a public place is fair game for having a photo taken and many photos contain geo-location meta data so good luck trying to pin a theft on that.

Posting the location is maybe a bit over the top but as a member of NYC boost club our vehicles are fair game in the city.

As for some criminals roving round looking for defenders ... Not that's stretching it a bit. The US defender market is nothing like the UK where they are stolen because they are so common, the exact in inverse of the situation in the US. I'm not aware of any defenders being stolen in all the time I've been on the board....

Theft of defenders prior to 97 is also exceedingly tricky given most of the US population can't drive stick.

If someone steals Ronnie's truck they'd abandon it within half a block due to the over powering cologne and ABBA cd constantly playing!

Yep. ... It's a Vespa 150. Great gas mileage and easy parking.

Most of these posts are not done in real time. What harm is there. Issue with the UK and the US is apple and oranges.

Sorry about that Dan's truck, not Dan

One thing I thought was interesting about the truck was that it was on black freestyles
