It's Lights Out
Got to ride today for the 1st time since Thanksgiving weekend. YEAH!
Was at a friend's house about 30 miles from home. The sun had just set, but still quite a bit of light. Start the bike and notice right away the bright light indicator is on. Hmm, didn't have the brights on before. Hit the switch to low, and light stays on. So I take off for the interstate and light starts fading fast. Notice no lighting ahead. Pull off at next exit & look. No headlight bright or dim, just the parking light. Crap, just put in new HID low last summer, and it's worked great for several thousand miles. So, I decide to take a county road back home instead of the interstate. The parking light was enough to see the white line at the edge of the road. Pucker factor rising. Finally make it to a town 5 miles away from home. Stop, shut the bike off, and pick up some cigars. Take off and go under an overpass at the edge of town, no white line, pucker factor max. Decide to flip the switch again and lights come back on! Both lights work now, but even on low the bright indicator still has dull glow. Pulled in the garage, and thanked the Lord, and went inside. Haven't looked at anything yet. An ideas on where to start? I don't understand why both lights were faulty at the same, but I haven't looked at the wiring schematic yet either.
