Shifting to the back if you're riding in a group can effectively double or triple the reach of your headlights. And, speaking of which, bust out that owner's manual-we'll wait-and make sure your lights are aimed to factory specifications and in proper working order. That means clean, pristine lenses ahead of fresh bulbs front and rear. Get your personal kit in order as well. A tinted faceshield is suicide, but a clear one that's cracked or splattered with bug guts isn't much better. And if you think you're too tired to get from A to B without chemical assistance or singing "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" the whole way, stay home and wait for David Letterman.
