headlight,, they drive on the wrong side of the road or you could put tape on the left hand side of the lens, to stop oncoming cars being blinded.

Honestly, I doubt that anyone would notice. I expect that you would do limited travel at night since you are sightseeing.

Re: Riding in USA

If you bring your Bike back to UK after the trip you haven't to change anything. No problem.
But be aware that's a lot of paper work, customs, money and other sh... you can think of. You need a insurance that covers US and Canada for this trip also. To take your bike over there you should hire a shipping company they will do all the papers and customs for you. Very important also for the way back in one companys hand.

Hope this will give you a idea,

Manfred
