With my low beam on I do believe it's quite bright for on-coming traffic because I was "flashed" twice indicating that they thought I was riding with my high beam on. As mentioned with my Sportster the low beam is really quite good at lighting the road ahead. My limitation wasn't really about a lack of light but more related being able to see long distances with artificial light at night (that doesn't help you at all on winding roads really).Any idea if it was so bright that other people on the road were pissed and showed that, maybe with flashing their lights at you?
Of course maybe my eyes are just "old eyes" that don't see as well as when I was younger. LOL
