So just out of curiousity when you guys ride at night do u ride with your brights on or your dims...or a combo of both?
Me personally i feel that at night with my dims on i am outriding my headlights at 45...maybe less...so i refuse to ride without my brights on considering i live in the woods...too many animals.
I dont much care if someone flicks their lights at me cause im happier to see that they notice me and they are blinding me equally as much with their SUV lights right in my face...just kinda goin off but tell me how u roll.

I usually use dims with oncoming traffic. I to live in the boonies but I put the sylvania siverstar and they are twice as bright as stock an a 1/4 the price of HID's. And thats coming from someone who makes lights for a living.:cheers

i got a $300 ticket for riding with my brights on at 5:45pm just as the sun was going down ... well the ticket started at 360 and i got the judge to drop it to $300 and +1 point on my record. So i had to do traffic school too.

The cop was a douchbag.

P.S. this is in arnolds nazi cali

Do you have any problems with the plastic head light lens melting? Someone told me that they would but I'm not sure.

man, i was actually thinking about posting this question.

i really want to ride with my brights, but i didn't wanted to be inconsiderate towards cagers (they aren't too fond of us already). after reading this thread though, i am seriously considering riding with my brights, since so many people do it :D

I ride with my brights on all the time. I also replaced my lights with silverstars and friends say it looks bright as hell at night. I sill would like to get HIDs though.

I don't know about brights all the time. It Only takes a couple seconds to go past an oncoming car, and flicking your lights off and then back on to help them wont hurt you. I don't know though, I live in the northwoods of Maine so maybe it's different up here.

I have HID 10000k blue lights and ride with brights on all the time. I know they are probably annoying and bright as hell but people notice them for sure and see me at night.
