Horrible Sleep, Mopeds, Dreary Weather
I wired up the switch and second headlight on the moped today. They look really nice together and after a little test drive, I realized I need to play around a little more with the bulbs. Since the high beam light goes through the switch, it takes more wire and more energy for the electric to flow to it, so it is currently a little weaker in strength...the opposite of what I was aiming for, but I am going to see what I can achieve by switching different watts of bulbs. Should be easy from there. I still need to order a voltage regulator so I don't blow bulbs at the high RPMs...maybe placing that on the circuit at specific places will help my cause. Either way, it is wired and ready to ride...the only thing holding me back is this weather.
It is only 37 degrees outside right now, so riding is quite numbing. Not that I haven't done it before, but I would rather wait 5 days when there is sunshine and temperatures are back into the 50's. Light snow could form tonight with less than an inch expected. While we have seen a lot more than that this winter, people always forget how slippery snow really is in the roadways when they haven't been on it for a few weeks. Temperatures will slowly climb through the weekend and sunshine will also slowly return... Let's bring on spring! Have a good one!
