    My head light is so bad, when I go around a curve, I have to put my foot down to feel the yellow line.

    Since I put in HID on the low beam it is great with the motolights on straights. Hustling through the twists and bends leaned over on roads like 151, 215 and 276 in the dark of night.. not so good.

    Yeah, I came down Ceasar's Head late a couple months ago, middle of knat season (so my tinted visor was down). Low beam was sketchy, but the ADV Monster lights worked great. To bad I'm nice and had to kill them when I passed oncoming traffic so I wouldn't blind them...

    I have the official Harley LED headlight on my bike. Absolutely amazing on the straights, Can't see more then ten feet in from of me when I'm turning sharp (but it's a very bright ten feet).

    Well you should be set up pretty well then. But then again you are in Florida. If there is a curve, it will be a corner, and if a corner in FL, a street light. :rofl

    :D It's all good.

    I should amend that to "sharp enough my heels are showing road wear".

    Something like that.:rofl I've already scraped up the exhaust pretty bad because I forgot I wasn't on my Goldwing anymore. Now my chrome won't get me home, I guess.

    Not a lot of bikes on the dragon right now.

    If you want culture shock ride a hard tail, jockey shift/suicide clutch (with a shitty worn linkage at that) low HD after riding a KLR; bumps aren't nearly as fun.
