Default Night ride on the predator 420 buggys

It was a nice night to get these things out. Haven't done this in a long time and it was awesome! We went a good 30 miles at least! The Alpena light on the Odyssey is insanely bright. I bought some cheaper led lights at Advanced Auto for the 2 seater and that was a mistake. You can see in the pictures. My passenger was 5 gallons of fuel lol.

How often did you have to fill up?

They were pretty full but not topped off when we left and we only topped them off once while we were out. They did really good for how far we went. I almost think we would have made it back without filling them up but I wasn't taking any chances and brought the gas can. We were pretty deep in the woods and weren't sure how far we were gonna go when we left.

Thanks Wes. I'm going to get another Alpena light right now. The first two pictures here are the same photo. The first is the two seater with the lights on the next is after we turned the Alpena light on on the Odyssey. I highly recommend the Alpena stuff! We will be heading back out tonight! I'll be loading some videos up on the channel soon. Finally took these through some sand and they did better than I thought they would

Cool, wish I could go with you. I don't have a buggy though. I know the harley wouldn't make it. The Murray might make it. I'd have to strap a jerry on the back though! It would be fun to try though!

Wes if you were closer you could have taken the Odyssey. You probably wouldn't have put a golf ball size hole in the rear tire like my buddy did the tire was ok driving for 5 miles on a flat and we made it home alright. But overall JT it was a lot of fun! New light was nice and my oldest son rode shotgun. We went to the first place I rode when I was a kid.

Ya I just gave him the speech about being careful with the rear end before this happened. We were heading down a fast trail with a lot of switchbacks and if you've seen my videos you know I've already learned the hard way
