I got another ride in tonight. It was my first chance to test the 10 watt eBay LED light pods I recently installed on totally dark roads.
Pic was taken yesterday

They have pretty impressive light output for amount of power they consume. I also used my helmet mounted 12 watt LED spotlight. I was able to see deer in fields 50 feet or more from the road. I'm not sure if it legal to ride on public roads with a bright spotlight on your helmet but since this one is intended for bicycles, and the law says I have to share the road with bicycles, Im gonna say it's ok.

Found some new ground on the klx yesterday after a couple hours of exploration.
Then grabbed my buddy who blew up his CRF a couple years ago and let him ride the klx while I was on the kx out at 7 mile today. Pretty busy out there! I think it was the motivation he needed to rebuild the head eater

Holy crap, good thing you're still walking. I've got those silly deer whistles on my bike. Too many close calls in my car.

Is the snow gone from 7-mile or were you guys out playing in the snow? I was out there a couple weeks ago and it was still well covered in the white stuff.

Great shot LB! Glad you're finally getting time to hit the dirt.

I'd say 7 mile is about 80% cleared up, still some snow in the shaded trees though.

I'm headed to 7-mile on Saturday to go ride with my two bosses. They're going to learn who's really the boss off-road.
