    Motorcycle mountaineering! Love it. No flats and midnight exits this year, I see. I'll have to attempt a trials putt up there soon. My son visited that cabin on foot last year searching for a gold mine claim he had researched. Looks like more fun with power.

    Hey n16ht5, can you talk a little about your LED lighting choices? I see you went from stock light to ADVmonster M60 to BD Squadron w/ M60 to just the Squadron.

    I'd love to hear your impressions as I want more light from my 06 WR250F. For trail riding I think LED is a great option.

    Thanks

    I really like the baja designs squadron, it gives loads of light. I got rid of the advmonster light because I went with a helmet light to go with the squadron instead. It all depends on how much money you want to spend. For $25 you can get an ebay HID kit that is way better than stock, but not near the squadron output.
