Please ALL....Ride with your HIGH BEAMS on always during the day!! There are studies that say you are 700% more visible. It should be something you ALWAYS do. :2cents:

Thanks for the reminder. I always forget to put it in high beam.

Saw a couple of brand-new Yamahas yesterday. They got my attention from a half-mile away with their headlight modulators. It was a kind I haven't seen before, very bright then very low and relatively slow pulse, and with them side by side and pretty much in synch, i thought it was a funeral approaching in a pack of traffic. Very effective.

I forget the opposite, turning off the high beam at dusk/night.
Me too! I get so used to seeing the high beam indicator, I "forget" it is on!
See me, hear me, know I am here. A CFR and high beams do the trick!:D

This is actually one of the few things I remember to do, I still occasionally attempt to start the bike in gear, But the blue light is always on during the day, and off at night. Both are the same wattage anyway.

Around here, studies have shown that this type of high/low flashing attracts deere. Honda Goldwings use to come factory this way, but not anymore. As far as high beams, mine sux absolutely useless. I plan on changing to the bullet style headlamp as soon as the price drops alittle.:broke:
