Headlight Dip for Europe
on: July 13, 2013, 03:01:17 PM
Its been a few years since I toured Europe on the bike but as we will be heading there tomorrow, I hast had a horrible feeling about the dip on the headlight.

I know on older bikes its just a matter of some sticky tape (or you can but masks, for cars anyway) over pars of the headlight but looking at the CT its not obvious ?!

Has anyone done this and if so, any advice ?

I'm pretty sure bikes have a flat beam - so no need for stickers any more  :028:

Yep, just checked it against the wall in the garage - nice flat beam.
