Tonight was the first night I rode my scooter close to dark. It was not quite pitch black, but with my shades on, it was close enough. Thank goodness they are a clear to dark gradient shift so that I could cheat my vision.
The ride itself was amazingly fun while being very scary at times. I did not have a close call, but being in the dark moving that fast is not the same as riding our bike on the Playa at night. It is even more surreal in someways. Like you are dreaming it, but need to stay aware.
