Hi I have just read this with interest as I have recently posted about new lighting regs in the UK for HID lights and LED lights. They are for cars at the moment but Bikes will follow soon I have no doubt.

In the UK HID and LED headlights now have to have self leveling beams and also beams that turn with thecar. They also have to have lens washers.

Is it at all possible that Mother simply fitted this to the new Goldie in preperation for these changes. I have to assume that they are at least HID on the new model. The affect you describe could well be the self leveling system working.

keep the old girl on the road
