Been back about a month now from my 3 weeks in the states.
I got lots to say about the visit but that will be for a different forum.
I installed a new bulb for my headlight, an H4 12V 60-55W, as suggested on the forum and then I adjusted the headlight until it is almost too high, as suggested on the forum. So far, no one has blinded me with their brights so I think I am good.
I like the way the new bulb works. I can see now for about 30 to 40yards down the road instead of the 10 I had before.
When the brights go on I have nearly daylight in front of me.
Now I will have to wait for the real test, RAIN.
So a hearty thanks to all for the advice.
