Hey do you guys ride with you brights on? @ night? Well for the last 2 mornings I have rode to work. Iam not a big commuter but it pisses my Boss off @ work so I try to do it when I can. But in the morning I have gotten sweved at like 3 times. I have a 2004 GSXR which has a very wide prjected light and I wouldnt be able to miss a sreaming bright ass bike coming up next to me but they did. :eek: So I vowled never to turn my brights off. And let me tell you alot of people were not happy about that, but the point is that they saw me and the told me that "I'm number 1 in their book"..... :thanx:

I bought some bright A$$ lights last night. There so bright if you look directly @ them, it will burn your retina's out.
Bet you'll get even more, "you're number 1" , signs now :D

My Kat has some seriously wide & bright lamps on it too, so it usually works pretty well for me at night, even on low beam...but when I can I always use Highs, looks like a freight train or something coming right at you.. :thumbs:

I generally run my brights all day and go back to lows at night. Some people run the brights at night and it even bothers me when I'm on my bike. Expecially when it's one of your buddy's that is following you. You can't see nuttin behind you when they're back there...

I sometimes ride with them on. Most of the time they are off, but here recently, I have had them on. :)

I ride with the brights on during the day and the low beams at night. I bought Xenon blue for the R6 and they are pretty bright at night on the low beams - so much so that most oncoming cars, bikes, etc. flash me to "turn off" the brights - so I flash them a bit of bright.

I do the same thing and have a similar set of lights in my 9R...

Riding with the "Brights"...

Hi Everybody ! :hi:

I usually prefer the Brights for daytime riding, and the Low's for night time. I wouldn't mind getting some Xenon's for my Kat, but like Need4 said, my bike's lighting is pretty good as is...


:bike:

Oh, my bike will light up about 5-6 lanes wide and real far. The best damn lighting I have ever seen on most anything...

Brights at day, lows at night. Xenons are a planned mod. The great thing about those is that you can (honestly) tell the wife they are for "safety".

Safety - that beautiful word that has some primal effect on women making them ENCOURAGE men to spend money upgrading stuff or buying gear. :D

HEHEH funny you say that the other day I went to the local shop, one of the salesmen was outside when I pulled up, he said as I was getting off my bike hey you have a light out. :screwy: I said its a F4I. Then he was like I guess I should know that since I sell them.

I think that guy needs to sell something else if he didn't know that. :D
