Our last adventure in the rain was freezing. I titled it the hypothermia ride. I was super paranoid, because I had my 80/20 tires on my bike, so I was slipping around everywhere.

I have a new D606 on the rear and an MT21 up forward. I am expecting a lot better results.

My stock DR Lights will be pretty dim, but I am sure that Julio's UFO technology should light up the trail pretty good.

Here is another shot from our previous ride.

Night ride

I would be in for your night ride but it's a long way to come for a mostly paved road. I will have to pass this time...

Now when you get ready to go run the Coke Ovens at night or something cool like that down your way I am definately in.

And stop picking on Eddie... who doesn't like to drive 6 or 7 hours to ride for 3 on mostly flat two track

It always depends on the surface. A-Cross road is one nasty bitch if you as much spit on the ground.

So is some of that stuff on the back way to CK.

You all have a great time, If the bike wasn't down at the moment I think I would join you.

That is so cool.

I tell you what I would love to but if you get a opportunity to sell please do. I don't want you to hold onto them just for me as who knows when I might be able to try them.

Thanks

Successful night run to fish creek canyon.

Cyberdos and I had a fun ride up to fish creek canyon. Those ADV LED lights lit up the canyon. My stock light was lacking. Here us a pic from the beginning of the ride.

We used good judgement, due to reduced visibility and the remote nature of our ride.
