I hear ya Andy. I slowed it down some when I saw a couple of deer along side the road. A guy left a party and decided to go down a country road at 100 mph. The bike cut the cow in half and of course he didn't make it.

Damn... the thing I hate the most are those pesky squirrels.... yea.. like when they team up and bet on how many cars they can make swerve. Damn... I think they are on the take from insurance companies... Ummmm.. WAIT... we don't have those things in Hawaii...

Anyway... I got the message.. drive careful..

Q: Do your highbeams work on seeing a little more of the road?

I just run over the squirrels! Not worth swerving, and possible wiping out for. Not that I do not like squirrels, I just like me and my bike better….

A guy here in Pleasanton (CA) hit a deer at 70 MPH and it cut the deer right in half, thrashed the bike, but he slide about 40 feel but got up with just some bumps and bruises. I think he was on a Beull, I forgot wht the bike was.

Also I will high beam a turn if I have to to get a better look. Try that. Some times solid high beam doesn't help, but a quick flip of the switch between high and low will help obstacles create a quicker shadow than a solid beam will.

Hey all. I went for my first night ride up through the canyon last night. The head light puts out a flat beam. I didn't really think about it until I attacked the first turn. When you lean your bike the beam follows it of course and now you can't see into the corner. Ya, it gave me the OH SH** syndrome. :) I thought I would pass that on so you will be aware of it.
