So my worst nightmare (apart from crashing) finally happened. Unlit highway, piss poor visibility (it was raining at night, duh), and my lights go out. Yup, front and back. Yeah I was freaking out in my helmet, but just kept on going following tailights around, estimating the curvature of the road, staying out of the way of faster vehicles, until I got into the street lights of Kuala Lumpur (about 100 km going 80-110 km/h like this). One hand on throttle, the other wiping the visor, and if I had another hand I'd be flipping off the gods. Speaking of the gods, no one rammed me from behind thanks to a little stroke of luck--a backup tailight I had zip-tied to the bike the day before (the led flashers cyclists use). Now that's genuis!
