    Yeah...lights...It's on my to-do list. I'm gonna steal the LEDs from my 450. They're the round 30W quad cree xm-l like what ADVmonster sells. I got mine from a seller on e-bay. The Rigid Dually lights use the same LEDs and similar price too. Should be plenty.

    I'll be staying in roughly the same spot as last year, in the same group of condos as you Jack.

    we were lining up a place to rent but canceled mid process when we realized we would lose 50% if we had to cancel after paying. Given that we are still building the car we thought it wiser to wait until we know we are going.

    You're on! I keep reading everyone worried about their lighting....I plan on slowing down :huh. I figure I'm not getting rich and famous doing this, so I'm there to have a blast, meet some new people, and come home with all the same parts I showed up with.

    I just looked at the itinerary again.(foolish) 319 total miles day one. 191 for day two. :eek1

    When was the last time you put 10-15 gallons of gas through your dirtbike in a weekend? :clap

    This will be awesome. Bring your monkey butt powder.

    The answer to that question is this past weekend for me :D. Rode 3 days in a row, a bit over 700 miles. Rode some gnarly stuff!

    Pffffft, just needs an engine, wheels, and a seat. Plenty of time!

    Looks like some late nights ahead. Keep us posted.

    We already called attempting to finish in time for RWV. We might have done it by cutting a lot of corners and sacrificing the build quality but neither of us have the ability to do that. The car may see Black River for its first event.

    Nice, I just installed almost the same setup on the WRR. Works nicely.
