Drove the inland scenic route from Glentunnel through Oxford, then Ashley gorge road through to Loburn. Great road, hardly any traffic, very pleasant, but it is a test of a compliant suspension in places......

I did the same trip on Saturday Evan and managed to dodge the worst of the road imperfections. For a change I did not hit the ground anywhere, but usually strike at least once. It certainly does give the suspension a work out, and there is one particularly bad hollow just out of Oxford on the way to Ashley Gorge that requires a careful entry and exit.

There are some theoretical occasions where you may want your headlights on without the ignition, so I'm happy just putting a beeper across it.
I'm not running a headlight relay either...
