Did you noticed any wires coming out through the gloves??....sincGT said:And yesterday actually. It was 2 deg C yesterday on my ride in. Warmed up to 6 deg. today.
Parked beside an ST1300 this am. I looked for a switch for heated grips but didn't see any. Don't those bikes have heated grips?!
Three things. PIAA and Phillips makes a higher intensity/same wattage bulbs. Don't understand the magic, but I've tried both and the light coming back "seems" to be better.plastics said:However, coming home in the evening one day, it turn dark and I can only say the stock BMW low beam is a bit on the dark side...so I'll do some research on brighter bulbs.
All for now
Go ahead, tell them the scientific way you set the lights.Razel said:Three things. PIAA and Phillips makes a higher intensity/same wattage bulbs. Don't understand the magic, but I've tried both and the light coming back "seems" to be better.
Check out your headlight adjustment. For some reason, the beam seems to be aimed low. I noticed that mine was lighting up the tiny rocks the front tire was kicking up as I went down the road. I've got mine set probably a tad bit high, just such that the reflective lane dots light up a ways down the road. Not such that the highway signs overhead are also lighting up, though. No flashes from oncoming traffic thus far...
Get some fog lamps, PIAA or Moto. They mount either under the cowling below the oil cooler or on the forks. Light up the road a bit better up close, and work wonders should that single headlight bulb decide it's lived long enough.
