Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I just got done re-wiring the brake light for a 4-AAA battery pack and a 6V brake lamp. I did some testing a day or so ago on the hunch that it might be brighter that way. It was, so I changed her over from the old 9V LED. I really thought the LED would have been brighter too, but I have my photographer's light meter and it agrees with my eyes.

Well, of course I had to go out on a bit of a cruise to try it out. And, of course, I wasn't paying much attention to anything but cruising while I was out. But the brake light was just as bright when I got home, so I'm all good.
