That was quite an entertaining ride, good folk to ride with. Personally though I'll not be deliberately doing it again. I have slight depth perception issues in the dark even with super lights and I was amazed i didn't have an off. Also its cold and just not comfortable plus as I'm always knackered due to my ME my bodies screaming at me that I should be asleep. I'm a daylight rider :roll:
However once I get the one slightly annoying issue with the Niterider Dual lights (the lead jumps out on bumpy terrain) sorted I'll lend them out to those who do want to night ride. Dr S did give me them for free so I feel the need to pass on the Karma :wink:
