A friend and I (Ninja zx10r and me on the XT, yeah, talk about mismatch - no offroading) where riding up angeles crest as night hit. We where pulled over taking a break when someone on a yellow BMW passed and honked. visibility dropped to zero and we pulled off at Mt Wilson, decided it was too cold and turned back.

Currently no skid plate, and stuck on street-only tires until work starts up again.
