May 25th Backway to CK in the DARK

Several people made comments about doing a night ride after looking at the neat LED lights Zen Moto had on display.
So kickstands up at 8PM from the staging area on the left just before the pavement ends at the stop sign going into Lake Pleasant. The last time I did this, it was big bike doable with a good rider.

I just did the backway to CK a couple months ago on my KLR. It was pretty easy with just a few places where you had to pick your way through some rocks going up the creek bottom.

In!

I figured out my Trail Tech X2 HID problem. One light was out and one ballast was out. Good light + good ballast = One light works! Anybody need an HID light? I have other plans...

Go figure!

I haven't confirmed yet, but I think the bike WITH the new lights will be ready for this ride. :-)

Get it going

Better talk to your mechanic and tell him your deadline so there is no excuse...

IN..

The bar has changed hands up there and may not be open.. I called Mike at the Mill and he has agreed to stay open late for us, they normally close at 8:00pm.. He is going to set up a buffet style dinner for us and beverages...

We need to be in there around ten PM

We need a head count so I can keep him posted....

If anyone is concerned about fuel please let me know (post up) and I will have some waiting.....
