Same here. Will be happy to see many people I haven't ridden w/ in too long. I love the Friday afternoon rides!

I haven't participated in a night ride in a long time. Do we have interest in one for Friday eve?

I'd be down for that...is the crummy OEM headlight on my KTM dirtbike good enough, or is some supplemental/upgrade light a must??

In this group, it all depends on how entertaining you want to be. :shrug:

If I make this one at all, it will probably be just for the day on Saturday.

Ive always had the crappy stock headlight. Havnt done this is years but I used to duct tape a flashlight to my helmet. Worked well enough for once a year or less.

They sell some pretty bright head-lamps for bicycle guys. I wonder if this could go on the outside of helmet to supplement headlight.

Now I really wish I was 2 people! Night riding is awesome! It doesn't matter how bright your headlight/ helmet light is you won't be able to see down the hill/ into the holes! Bonus points for riding the course backwards! Right Bucho!

Interesting BamBam, I wouldn't have thought about mt biking stuff. Its amazing how cheap some of this flashlight technology has become. I remember 11 years ago Kyler and I raced in the SandBlast Rally. Pretty much all of our competitors had moto helmet lights for the last section in the dark. At the time even cheap ones were several hundred dollars. I haven't looked at any of the stuff since then. Its been 5+ years since I've done a night ride. And when I did it was maybe ONCE a year. So the small flashlight and duct tape method has always worked well for me.
