    Thanks for the info. If both are on then I'll leave it the way it is. I read somewhwre that a guy installed a replacement hi-beam HID bulb to go along with his OEM HID lo-beam. And I agree with one of the posters that the low beam is plenty of light at night. On a 2 lane, it lights up both ditches.

    You' re right the low is very good. I put a silver star in for the high beam. It almost has recoil when both are lit up. We do a lot of riding in remote areas and it is nice to push tha dark back a bit. BTW IF you ever need a light for the low it is the same as an 06 Denalli. (sp)
    Ride safe, Cheers

    We have a different set of circumstances up here at latitude 53 in the summer. We get 17 hrs of daylight from sunrise to sunset on June 21. With daylight time, the sun sets at 10:07 PM and rises just after 5 AM. The north sky ramains a medium blue through the night. It's beautiful. But I rarely if never ride after 10:30 PM so it's still quite bright out. For example, I rode my GL1500 Goldwing for 9 years before I had noticed that the speedo/tach combination dials had lost their illumination with several burned out bulbs until it was mid-Aug in northern Calif when we were riding later than expected. By 8:30 it was dark and I realized then that the bulbs were gone. I had no idea because our summer light stays much longer. FYI... not quite land of the midnight sun but just as cold here in winter!

    I feel for you. This has been the coldest winter we have had in a while. I don't store the XCT but will go some time without riding on occasion. Not sure how y'all do it. I guess you may say the same for the heat here. LOL
    I went to Canada once many years ago, and didn't get to stay long enough for my liking. Things were different then. Got caught fishing and the warden, ranger or what ever you call them was very sympathetic to us. He even pointed out a good camp site and better place to fish. I'd bet that won't happen in either of our countries these days, and we were fortunate to fet the rught "guy".
    Stay warm and here is to an early spring for you. It looks like we will be in for a late one here.
    Cheers
