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.

Riding at night technology is improving quickly at the gap since THP showed up. There has been numerous new light setups tested in the past few months.

I would love to go to the rally, but I don't know if I'll be able to. I guess I can make my own reservations if needed. Sounds fun.
