HID + Hi Beam use observation
Just out of curiosity, last night I used ALL the lights, ALL the time and did not have one person flash me in fifty miles. Prior to the HID install (CQ 5K blue light), any use of the high beam would have had oncoming drivers flashing one after another. Wonder if it is a combination of the blue light from the 5k and the H3?
Whatever is happening, the lighting is just outstanding! Also had the Motolights on...which apparently are not an issue, but it is possible they were set too high when the dealer installed them (used to get more than a few people flashing me with just the H7 bulb and the Motolights). Seems to be working well now, and don't want to mess with it.
Had a very large fox run in front of the bike....pretty kewl, considering it was not a threat. First I've ever seen one anywhere near that large, and not red (which we have a lot of in this area).
Also got the MP3 player up and running. Have to crank the volume quite a bit, but otherwise, it works great.
Curious now if anyone else has found they can run HID and high beam without causing problems for oncoming traffic?
