    Hopefully the lights are adjusted right and won’t blind anyone. We had a guy who rode one around my place, but he had lights all over it so he could see deer at night. The problem was, it blinded oncoming traffic and led to a sand hauler running him over. Be careful, too much light will get you killed faster than not enough.

    I very rarely ride at night, matter a fact the only time I ride in the dark might be at bike week twice a year and that's only on A1A, 25-35mph. I'm only concerned about being seen in the daytime. If I know I'm coming home in the dark I will take the car.
    I remember when my X went to motorcycle class for her driver license and the instructors told them to ride with the high beam on during daylight hours.

    They have started giving tickets around here if they can tell that your high beams are on, even during the day. Some of these new led and hid lights can blind during the day. When I was an MSF instructor, we always told students to ride with the high beams on during the day. But that was before bikes came with lights that would melt your eyes. Now, if you tell students to run their high beams, you get in trouble. Hopefully you don’t have any issues.

    Another good reason to live in Pa. lol
    The Pa. State police built their new barracks 7 doors from me 10 years ago and I have never had anyone question me.

    I kind of see it as a reason not to live in Pa. The law doesn’t care at all about people blinding oncoming traffic and causing accidents? That’s pretty messed up. I’ve ridden a lot of miles over a lot of years and have never once thought it was acceptable to endanger the lives of others just to make myself more “visable”. And, I know there are other drivers on the road who, like me, drive big old trucks and tend to steer towards oncoming traffic that is blinding them...

    Well then if you steer or tend to drive toward bright lights like the deer do, I glad you live in Texas and not in Pa. also with those big trucks you drive. Living in the country and mountains we've become very mindful to avoid those deer and big trucks trying to hit us.

    The only people that have to worry are the people who are blinding oncoming traffic. If your lights are adjusted well and you are responsible with the high beams, you wouldn’t have a single issue. I love the small town and small county as well. Everyone is courteous to other drivers. I’ve never had issues with bad driver when I’m on a bike in my area. Well, not once you get away from the interstate. Everyone waves at everyone they pass, very little tailgating or cutting people off. It’s a great place to ride with a lot of fairly twisty little two lane roads and no traffic.

    Yeah the ones that Taylor has are all white and all amber when activated. But from what I understand they are harley and have to be hardwired.

    Not a big deal to hardwire three wires, but I just want factory connectors. The majority of my connectors are Duetsch, which is a step up from the jst connectors we had.. but won't fit in that housing.. ya dig..
