I can also tell you from experience that the flashing headlight method doesn't work well. Requires the other person to be checking there review mirrors at the same.

Might be worth getting a set of walkie talkies with headsets instead.
JamieB - You must have missed the original post. The "signalling the girl friend" story is really a diversionary cover-up!

I did take a short ride and it was great, only wore a shirt and it topped what they said, actually hit 77 Deg., broke a record set all the way back to 1873... The front is going to get us this afternoon or by morning anyway, and possible will have snow & maybe ice by Sunday...lol... Thats Tennessee though...
BTW-I can borrow coffee in McMinnville or Crossville either... Your dad is a bit older than me as I am still a youngster, just 71, but good to see he is still working and keeping the ole bod going, I think thats what keeps us going... I did know a couple of nursery owners in McMinnville, one of which I think his last name was Wartenberger (sp)...
Thanks and have a good one...Old Dog...

Boy! Did I ever find that out...lol... And to those that let me know... I have a Bat. tender, Stabil, and have been driving Tenn. public roads for well over 50 yrs., so am quite knowledgable of laws of the road including the helment law...lol..., But thanks anyway... And I was just kidding about the girl friend, at my age what would I do if she came anyway ...lol...
I did put the 10 amp toggle switch on the single ground wire last night and it seems to work... I won't be using it today though, its supposed to get to 75 Deg., so I will ride, whopeee...
Thanks and have a good one...Old Dog...

Couldn't you like take your hat and cover the light for a bit and than uncover it again, giving it the on and off effect???
If you inssist on a switch I would put it on the ground side. The ground is common to both high and low beam.

Ccspinner 10 Will work on low beam but not on High, the stock fuse is 10 for the low headlight. As long as you have not upped the bulb to a larger one.

Old Dog Thanks Ccspinner;
I have a 10 amp on hand, would that be enough or should I get a higher amp switch..???
Thanks and have a good one...Old Dog...
