California Night Ride Friday 7/25/14 Apple Valley

Recommended Posts

Start 7PM, return when we're over it.  Must have good lights with working tail light and brake light., Race quality or damn near race quality head light is best. Local area desert ride. Apple Valley, Oro Grande, Helendale, Shadow Mountain. Plenty of tent space for overnighters on a nice lawn in my back yard. Post ride campfire and drinks no problem.

Thanks for responding Jonesy. Good call on your part. Night riding is no BS, wimpy lights will get you hurt. I know because I'm a long time KTM rider and their lights have always blown on the pre EFI bikes. Nice LED or HID are plug and play with the new EFI bikes . Any other brand and you need a stator rewind to get what you pay for out of a good lighting system. I run a BD Squadron on my 500EXC, plenty of lighting open desert trails and washes. Single track riding well after dark in the local hills is really disorienting and I 've been riding those trails for 35 years. Its a whole new animal after dark.

I had a 10" rigid led on my WR, I loved it. My 450 Curently has a trail tech x2 torch on it, and I don't think it's enough to run with the Mohave mutt at night.

I'm more of a walker at night.  And it's Mojave, just like the desert. My wife is a retired teacher, and as you know we're just down the street. Only if you need help with spellin.....   Torches are fer runnin Fraknenstine outta town. This is 2014 for shit sakes, get an AR.

You might be getting old, but your lies are still fresh.

Nobody wants to ride with me either.

When I pick up my bike from Blais on Thursday I'm gonna take off the forks and shock and swap them back over to the 450 and ride your Friday night ride.

I just texted Happytrails and told him, he said I was a &%$#@!, but he understood.

Yeah, but I said there is a strong possibility of making this ride also since I'm gonna be out there anyway. Jeez. I can understand though cause I believe Mutt is a legend. Hehehe

I can still ride Thursday night if you two mortals want to see greatness that is known as the 200. But I do have to flake on the Saturday ride in the utes.

Glenn won't quit till the tanks are dry. I will be sleeping in on Saturday.
