Last night was the first time my riding buddy and I were able to get out for some winter night motocross. The temperature was around 45 degrees - no need for Trelleborg winter tires yet, but they are ready to be mounted at the first sight of the white loam.

I have an HID light front number plate, and for power, I use a sweet redneck-engineered Lithium battery operated flashlight with some simple modifications, held on with a bungee cord to the bike. I also use a Cyclops light mounted on my helmet, and together they actually works pretty well - I feel like I could stare at something and it would catch fire because they are so bright.

The guy taking the picture hates it when you look right at him.

There is a plug not used for anything behind my Alta numberplate (used for the Enduro model?), and I need to look into if it could be used to power my HID light.

I switched back to my well-used stock yellow plastic, because winter riding is tough on a dirtbike and I want to save the white plastic for next season.

Silent Night. Holy Night...

Night riding is a blast. I put one of these on my helmet and one on my bike (2014 YZ250F at the time) for a 24 hour race in NY. They actually worked very good. Battery is pretty small and lasted plenty long. About 3 hours.
