Some nice evening driving. Alternating a book and Frank Morgan on the stereo.

The dual xenon high beams (180w total) are nice but maybe just a little bit more would be nice..

Ratnalle, do you guys use your high beams on divided highways ( Dual carriage ways) ? I forget our regs but I use them whenever it’s clear ahead, even if there is traffic on the other side

Too close between the two directions so it's not much of a difference to meeting someone with the highs on on a regular two lane road. With a few exceptions. So not when there's oncoming traffic. But if it's clear I'll use them. Even if I've got someone ahead in the distance. That's what the night mode in the rear view mirror is for :-)

The picture shows only the low beams since there's traffic around. A lot of empty road as well though.

That's the swedish countryside this time of year for you. Grey with red houses.

How's this for scandi-noir? A few bends later these was a moose standing in the road. Big things up close. And just before was a badger.

Ah, that's why Volvo has the moose crash test! I don't think I have ever seen a moose before. June[youtube][/youtube]
