Sick upgrade Mike! That'll make lake-fishing for bass a bit easier, though I don't know how well Otter Creek will take that thing :p

Well that's one advantage of having the MTB, you just throw the bike in the back of the vehicle, drive to where you'll be pulling out, lock up the bike, and then drive to the put-in with the toon. When you're done with the float, if you're really worried about theft, just lock the toon up with the same chain you just took the bike off :P As far as a MTB trailer, when that happens, I'd love to see a photo... wouldn't it be easier to just deflate it?

SCORE!!!! Big time. If I wasn't such an NFO freak, that would be the boat I would buy.
Bronco is solid, trust worth ride for sure.
Now add rod holders and don't forget the LEASHES.

I really like the frameless NFO toons, but for how I got this, itll do just fine. Ill be making it my own soon. I need to clean it up, any suggestions as to what to clean and protect the pontoons would be great.

You probably know this already but just in case, keep tabs on the inflation levels. Going over mountains and being in the hot sun can raise the inflation enough to pop seams or worse yet, pop the bladders. A friend of mine just had his blow out a couple weeks ago just from sitting in the sun.
Enjoy the ride.
