    Current plan is to truck my KTM motard & bro-in-law's Hog up to Deal's Gap on or about 6/16. His H-D would likely make it without the truck, but the 520 probably would not. Legalities are sketchy at best.:evil

    will you ride the gap on the Motard?
    plenty of cops around there if you are worried about the "legalities" of it all

    Used the KTM's AC lighting circuit to power lights without the battery. Everything works, sort of, as long as the motor's running. Made this cool LED tail/brake light and put it in the original housing. Even has blinkers. Someday I might even post a pic. Or buy one from Killboy...
