Easy to follow and find your way with just a Benchmark Atlas.
Thank you for sharing...with the favorable weather forecast, we are now planning to ride from SLC and maybe stay in Boulder, then ride Toroweap and stay along the route. If anyone is interested in going PM me , 5-6 committed right now.

There are campsites right at the toroweap overlook. Campsites have outhouses and fire pits and are a few hundred yards walk from the overlook, great access for sunrise shots! Sould be reasonably empty this time of year. I went a few years back... Went out from Pipe Springs Monument turn off - like 9 miles west of Fredonia. Then returned via the fork that heads into Colorado City - friends damaged bike had us take the short route out instead of heading out through Bloomington/STG as was our original plan.

Campsites are immaculate. No water, plopper toilets. Kinda strict on the "2 vehicles per site" thing.
We moved one over to a site that only had one vehicle to keep the Nazis happy. Beautiful site to stay.

Per Wiki.Answers....

100 W tungsten incandescent (120 V): 1750 lm

This is an output of = 1750 lm / 100 w = 17.5 lm / w

The Model 60 LED provides 3600 lm with an input of 28 w

This is an output of 3600 lm / 28w = 128 lm / w

Or...128 / 17.5 = 7.4 times greater output for the input than the incandescent = increased efficiency

More importantly, it is better light to see with. Incandescent provide light of the wrong colors. That is noticeable in photos where they look very yellow with incandescent as compared to the flash which is more white.

LEDs also beat out many other lights on weight and size. That is why they are perfect for lightweight dirt bikes.

There are some good comparisons in this thread...

The only problem with hid and led is the color of the light. The more white the light is the more it is flat and hides bumps rocks etc. They are very bright for weight and size though.

I have a led headlamp and a halogen headlight. While riding you can watch a rock vanish when it goes from being in the halogen light to in the led light.

When 5 of us rolled into Toroweap CG last May there was only one camp site open. The campground host was very cool, a rider himself, and allowed the 5 of us to camp at one site. Probably depends who is the host at the time. Beautiful and clean campground.

They let us multi camp, just didn't want more than two bikes on the site.

Mr. Harcus, you have 30 seconds for your rebuttal.

Hah. Yes I'm bored. So bored that here is a comparison. A shitty halogen ryobi light to a stalker high dollar led.
