As an extra safety measure? I'm not sure how effective it is, but I see a lot of bikers around that (appear) to do this.

I'll admit I dont usually but the brights on during the day, however it is a good idea that I should probably try to incorporate on a regular basis when riding.

During the day I do ALL the time! But for God's sake, turn em down at night. The over bearing brightness causes nothing but problems at night for everybody in front of you..

Yes, I try to have the brights on during the day. Of course, I turn them off at night if I'm in a traffic area.

I've done it since day 1. Granted, day 1 was about three weeks ago..... I'll switch to dim when I'm doing an early evening ride when I enter some heavily shaded areas along the back roads. I had a bike come at me two nights ago with his highs on around 7:30 pm in the shade (heavy shade here, trees almost made a natural tunnel) and I was blinded from his lamp.

Since January, when one of my low beams burnt out. I don't ride at night in the winter since snowmelt on the road freezes up instantly when the sun goes down.

Yep... brights on all the time during the day. Gotta do everything you can to make these stupid people see you (and they still don't! :cursin: ). Once the sun goes down though I use the low beam... don't want to blind anybody, and the F4i has got some BRIGHT ASS high beams! LOL

As said before.... brights during the day and normal lows during the night. Brights at night is just dangerous.... What is the first thing that most animals and people do when they see bright lights going for them... they stare... what's that cause??? Sight fixation.... then they run right for you.... not too mention somebody trying to look away and hit something or you!

Yeah Ace did you hear that - TURN THEM DOWN @ NIGHT - for christ sake it is not enough that you have a testerone enriched loud ass v-twin you have to turn on your 1,000,000 candlewatt beams as well? Now I can't hear or see?

I always ride with my highs on during the day.. Lows @ night..
