some times the most anassuming trails can be the most treacherous.
this tall grass hid deep ruts and large rocks.
the left side of my skid plate bounced off one of those large rocks/small boulders (it was quite the jolt) and deflected it into my shift lever. I just kicked the lever back straight and rode on.
without a skid plate I would have busted the engine case and walked out.
