I NEVER use my highs. I forget where the switch is, lol. I get a little reminder when I put my hand back on the bar and accidentally hit it!

taking that further, i just got back from colorado where there are a lot of deer and elk, so for even more good reason im riding at night with my hi beams on through the valley. this deush on a harley that has been riding behind me gets next to me and says "turn off your high beams ! your high beaming everyone! then yells to his fat cow of a passenger 'f***ing crotch rocket idiots" this fat is of course gearless by the way. so i slow down and holler "what" at him. when he went to yell again i interupted him with the new two bros which is very loud by the way. he then proceeded to "take off" on his harley at a blistering 70 something passing a truck on the shoulder!
so what are anyones thoughts on this? do yall ride with hi beams?

i use the high beam too havent have any problems, and if i do em

Well, i got a dual floating light set-up on the front of my F4, with that said, I can cant the angle enough to where I shine the lights more up, more in line with people's mirrors. the effect is right in the eyes like hi-beams, but not such a bright light.

I ride with mine on until a car is close then flick them off, my theory is the change from bright to not...or vise versa lol... should be even more noticeable than just high beams.

I run them during the day when infront of a group. At night, get a decent low beam and the hi beam will not be needed.

I was making "mean eyes" on it them just playin' around and I turned it into x's, and I like the way it looks. I've seen it done on cars overseas, but why?

just looked at a pic of Corona Busa's bike. Thought that was a track bike... light goes through the front? Or is that really a track bike and he has something else?
