    Took a trip up into Sequoia National Park for some dirtbiking last weekend. It was the first trip I've taken with the roof rack loaded up and the lights working. I was very pleased with how well it all worked. Not having to cram all your gear down in between bikes makes a huge difference. I didn't take many pictures with the lights, but had a blast running trails in the dark. The cheap procomp lights light it up like daytime. Anyway, just thought I would share.

    Nah, dirtbikes are pretty light. Had a lot more concern with my 650lb warrior on it a few weeks back so I added ratchet straps to help spread the load. I've upgraded the surface with steel (about 1/8") that I had rhino lined so that helps a lot.

    Haha, not many people notice that (kinda the point I guess). I don't have any pics but there isn't much to tell. I held the plate up to the sheet metal on the stock skid plate and drilled two holes (the top ones). Then I used two self tapping type screws to hold it in place. A couple trail runs later and you end up with the bent up shape shown. I've yet to get a comment from CHP on it despite getting pulled over twice.

    Here's a thread I put some of the basket details in.

    For the deflector, I grabbed a sheet of plexi from home depot ($50) and cut it to size (pain in the ass and took 2 tries). Then I used a heat gun to shape it and a dremel with a sanding bit to clean it up. I could make it a little nicer, but it works well enough as is.

    There's probably another thread on this somewhere, but I knew where this one was. Wanted to let people in CA know that I got pulled over for "no front plate" in Westwood the other day. I told the officer I did indeed have a front plate and to look again. He saw it and asked that I unbend it and move it to a more visible location like the bumper but did not give me a ticket. He also gave me a warning about my tints but didn't ticket that either so that gives an indication of that particular officer's mindset. Bottom line is I've had it mounted that way for over a year and have been pulled over twice now and not gotten a fix it ticket for it. I like it 100% better this way and have no plans to move it.

    Cool pics. I love that area. I've ridden my streetbike ('04 Aprilia Factory) all over that area and ridden my dirtbike (06 CRF450F) around Kennedy Meadows. When things thaw out, I hope to go terrorize around there again. Whereabouts were your pictures taken? I realize that's a really big area.

    If I may ask, what size tires and how many inches of lift?

    We went in from the 14 through Jawbone intending to ride there but it was so blasted hot we just kept going up into the mountains there. It was the very southern end of Sequoia. Ran across a wrecked F104D on a single track way up in the mountains. It was pretty cool. I guess it went down on maneuvers back in the 60's.

    To the other question, it's a Donahoe lift up front, roughly 2.5" and the back has a 1" block, 4 leaf pack, hanger relocation, and Fox 2.0 shocks. Oh, and the tires are 285/75/16 KM2's.
