This is my new go-to vehicle on its first time outdoors. It won't be shipped until October 4, because I won't be home in North Florida to get it until the 8th. I am so stoked to get it, I almost changed my travel plans, but that might have created problems with my wife. The reason I chose a Tomcar should be clear when you read the little poem I wrote about patrolling this area in a Polaris Ranger: Roots and rocks Will test your shocks. Bumpy trails Will bang your tails. All I know? Go slow! Well, maybe it won't be necessary to go slow anymore. It appears to me that the TM5, with its longer wheel-base, will be even smoother riding than the TM2. I will post again after I've put it through its paces.
