I'm looking forward to feedback on that Rigid LED light setup on the forks. I've considered it but haven't found anyone who had one until now.

Please report back. Its looking great thus far.

Thanks for that. The last time I looked on here was I believe in August.

I'm right around the corner from you!

I live just around the block from Capital... figures that someone stops by when I stop checking the ADV site for a while :P Best of luck on your trip and if you want some good bbq before you leave, let me know!!!

It is SOFA KING bright!!! It is very white light as well. The stock fog lights look slightly yellow by comparison. So far, no one has flashed their lights at me. I'm very happy with my purchase.

He's heading back

He's already riding for 9 hours, looks like he might pull a SS1000 run then perhaps Coast to Coast from Jacksonville to San Diego.

Nice set up!

No SS1K on this leg of the trip... I just checked into my room in Jacksonville Beach, FL, about a block from the Atlantic Ocean...

Forecast is for rain tomorrow, so I may wait until Monday to start... I'm playing it by ear.

Thanks dude! I had no idea you took this. I had both of my gopro cameras taking video... I hope it turns out.

I'm in Texas now, just as the sun is rising. Got gas, I've ridden over 850 miles so far and I feel great!!

Following the spot, your making good time. Can't wait to hear the stories. I'll get by the gas station this morning. Heres a couple more from my sheltered seats.
