I have visited many great areas of England and Wales, although mostly by car....remember Scotland too, so much history, much with our neighbours down south!!

I live about 10 miles from Glasgow, such a great Victorian city, and a few miles from remnants of the Roman Antonine Wall.  And then there are the Highlands....... :001:
I'm hoping to get to Lewis, Harris and make my way round the norther shores of Scotland. Its a fab country, lots of stunning scenery, and not much traffic either!

CB500X - General Chat / Paint defect... Hopefully just a one of ?
« Last post by Bern_Grt on Today at 10:56:34 AM »
Discovered some time ago that the paint was bubbling by the filler cap. By the time I decided to call round the dealership, the bubble had got bigger than what it was when I shot that short clip. Got a call just about a week after having visited the dealer and they had a new tank waiting to be fitted :) Finally got it done a week ago, about 1:30Hr's work. Hopefully just a "one of" but I'm keeping a close eye on that new one... Just in case !

A little local ride and found this closed/abandoned bridge so stopped for a quick pic.
I don't know why but I have a bit for a love for urban decay, probably stemming from my love of apocalypse movies  :008:  The idea of nature taking back what is rightfully its own. Beautiful.

About 35 Miles as the crow flies from my house, there are smelting pots, remnants from the Iron Age. Incredibly interesting to walk around and immerse yourself and wonder what life was like then. Even close is the city of York, by far the most pretty destination in the UK, its simply stunning. We have so much localised traditions in England, from Cornwall (Cornish Cream and Cider) Yorkshire (Yorkshire Puddings, Cheeses and even Wines) Almost all coastal towns and villages still have local fishermen offering catch of the day too. I'm very fortunate to live here. Maybe not the biggest hills, or valleys or oceans, but there is something for everyone, none the less. Its really worth a long visit to England, of course there are places to avoid.....If you do ever end up this way out, let me know ill pop an itinerary together for you!

Thanks. I'll do that.  :062:

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Re: Mini LED Lights
« Last post by Bern_Grt on Today at 01:11:30 AM »
Finally got round to wire my additional LED lights the way I wanted them ! Having originally connected them via a simple separate on/off switch, I wanted the ability, for night riding, to have them on with the high beam, switching on and off using only the bike's original high/dipped(low) beam switch.
I also wanted to retain the ability to switch them on during daytime independently from the high beam, to be seen rather than to see (I'm thinking when the sun's low and behind me for instance).
Seems straightforward enough but... Being a 2017 500X with the LED headlight, the dipped beam is permanently on, basically meaning that I needed to stop the current flowing back to the high beam if I wanted the additional LEDs on with just the dipped beam. Enters a Schottky diode between the high beam feed and the additional LEDs... sorted at last :)
I have aimed them pointing slightly to the left / right and up (although nowhere near as high as when I had first fitted them !) and I am pleased with the results... specially for the grand total of 9.42 for that particular pair of lights :D
The animated gif below shows dipped beam, high beam without the additional LEDs (obscured by my gloves !) and finally high beam with additional LEDs on.
PS: for those not familiar with the LED headlight, when you are on high beam, both the dipped(low) AND high beams are on together.
