    I got another ride in tonight. It was my first chance to test the 10 watt eBay LED light pods I recently installed on totally dark roads.
    Pic was taken yesterday

    They have pretty impressive light output for amount of power they consume. I also used my helmet mounted 12 watt LED spotlight. I was able to see deer in fields 50 feet or more from the road. I'm not sure if it legal to ride on public roads with a bright spotlight on your helmet but since this one is intended for bicycles, and the law says I have to share the road with bicycles, I’m gonna say it's ok.

    Found some new ground on the klx yesterday after a couple hours of exploration.
    Then grabbed my buddy who blew up his CRF a couple years ago and let him ride the klx while I was on the kx out at 7 mile today. Pretty busy out there! I think it was the motivation he needed to rebuild the head eater:lol3

    Holy crap, good thing you're still walking. I've got those silly deer whistles on my bike. Too many close calls in my car.

    Is the snow gone from 7-mile or were you guys out playing in the snow? I was out there a couple weeks ago and it was still well covered in the white stuff.

    I'd say 7 mile is about 80% cleared up, still some snow in the shaded trees though.

    I'm headed to 7-mile on Saturday to go ride with my two bosses. They're going to learn who's really the boss off-road. :evil

    I don't know who that is but I sure do like that bike. I think one of those may replace the KLR and Connie some day. I'm assuming they have sorted out the bugs by now.
