night time trail riding

This was my first time off roading at night. I can admit it was a bit unnerving and the wet and muddy trail didn't make it any easier. Some of these guys were seriously all out in this stuff. Only one guy had an helmet light, the rest of us were running stock lighting.

Pretty cool.
I'd like to try it but I'd need to upgrade my lights first.

I'll have finish editing my night ride video. I've been putting it off since you can't see much. Helmet light would be nice!

I love my nite rides !!!!

I ride alone so safety comes above fun. I stick to
regular dirt roads and established atv trails all around
this general area. I switch on to off road often on these
rides, especially when it's cold.
5 minutes of berm blastin' warms up just to the point of
heated up but before getting sweaty, and the perfect time
to stop fer a smoke/ coffee thermos slug/ pee break, etc.

Lighting is good on gen 2 but it'd be nice of the headlite
followed the handlebar aim instead of the fairing mount.

Ride 'em if ya got 'em,
Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeap
