Lights will be charged. Some of that was scary enough in the daylight, let's avoid Chuck Norris's training camp this time, just in case he's at home.

That was a braw bricht moonlicht nicht the nicht. Or maybe it was just the rosy glow aff Mossmorran. Either way, a good night was had by all, although John's no as keen on trees as you'd think.

Oh, I like trees but no when they move faster than me, some of them definitely jumped oot in front of me. :roll:

It was a brilliantly lit bimble round Blairadam, my first time in there at night. My last night ride was years ago along top of Benarty with what were at the time really bright halogens, but the brightness LEDs just blow them away.
What I did notice driving home was that my car headlights and other cars' lights too, seemed dimmer, more a yellowish light than the white of the LEDs. Even the light being reflected off the big white road signs seemed less intense. Or is that just my auld eyes failing me?

Not just you John, driving home I thought my headlights were shite too.

Just shows how effin bright LEDs are. Was expecting mine to run out before end of ride with them being el cheapo ebay copies with not the best batteries but that was around 2hrs and they were both still OK.
Cannae wait till I get my new one from DX.
