Fortunately, the high beam is it's own bulb, with it's own ballast.....and it's 50 watts of HID, so it gets the job done.

THe last picture was about 9pm. I made it back home before midnight: 11:45pm
Life is Good, for this 49 year old fart. Best Adventure of the year!!!
Have I learned my lesson?
Probly not.

Would I do it again???
Unfortunately,.....probly
LOL AJ

Great to know nothing has changed you! Still loving the Pumpkin I see!

And so it begins...the motorcycle ride of morons. Really? You are so proud of being stuck out in the middle of nowhere, in the snow, after dark.

Well, that wasn't your average commute home story. Tree's and snow replaced cars on a jammed freeway!

If the downed tree's didn't have you, I'll use the word, concerned, I'll bet meeting the snow surely did! In the end you made it. Thanks for sharing your commuting story.

oooh, pretty
I like the route home- makes me want to commute by motorcycle instead of slab by Ford; Roseburg to Eugene would be funner by log roads.

I was wondering about that: a touring windscreen on a bike that is ridden exclusively on boulders, and woodpiles?

What's not to like? Great day at work, followed by a nice ride with beautiful scenery, an adventure in the dark, and home safe- all in one day!
