I did not want to hijack Chuck's recent thread. Although most states, if not all, prohibit the concurrent use of more than 4 driving lamps on public roads; it is doubtful one would get stopped on a GL1800 if the driving/fog lamps are modified to run with the high beam circuit giving a total of 6. One, most officers are not idiots and realize the need to be seen. Two, if the lower center cowl mounted lamps are properly aimed they will hardly draw any one's Ire. Three, the high and low beam lamp arrangements give the appearance of only two lamps being on at the same time anyway; that is, it looks like two long lamps rather than 4 shorter ones. Further, at night; when it most noticeable, hardly any considerate driver would go around with high beams on facing oncoming traffic and at a distance an officer would really be at a loss to tell how many lights are on. But then, we have day time. Lots of folks on cycles seem to like going about with high beams on in broad daylight. Hopefully the lights are adjusted to be a low angle with the adjuster! On some bikes, the high beams are on and the lows are off; but on our bikes both sets are on. Given that last fact, I do not routinely use my high beams in daylight. Doing so might lead you having all 4 bulbs burning out in quick succession and this lightless in the wee hours of darkness. The low beams and driving lamps seem to be highly visible without the highs. Any way, that is my logic; for what its worth.
