I'm gonna try... it'll probably be one of the first things out of my mouth when I get to Korea... "uh sir/ma'am, I'd like to take my mid tour starting 20 may... is that cool?"

my only issue is I get there in March... then leave for a month in two months? uh... yeah don't think it's gonna work out...

09 though.. probably a better chance... and maybe my ONLY true chance for a long while as I'm plan'n on heading to Europe after Korea...

I put economy down for now may need it upgraded later on. But I will be there if I have to sleep on a picnic table.

you won't have to sleep, I will keep you running the dragon all night.

BTW, I am testing a new light setup with my HIDs this weekend. Will post it up if it is effective. It shows promise.

Want to join fpzx in the ranks of first run on the dragon at night?

I still think he is insane for that s**t, though you don't really know what you are getting yourself into til you are actually on the road. Videos dont do it justice.

yeah, but it wasn't your first run. fpzx did it when it was completely pitch black and had no idea what to expect.

you run with headlights, that would be insane to run with them off. You can't see sh*t with headlights anyway though because you are trying to look through a turn that is pitch black.

yea only way to make a decent run at night would be to tape some mag lights at a 45* angle on the front of your bike...
