Now that we have a second 2012 GL-1800 in the Rhino group. (boilermaker) I have beendoing some testing. We rode together in a group of Rhinos yesterday consisting of five bikes with the 2012 leading and bringing up the rear. I am still testing but with the headlights angled down, yes....they are hard to see. I didn't have a problem seeing them when they are angled up. I am not done by all means and we will continue to look at this but I can tell you because of riding in a group with the 2012 leading and also in the rear, the 2012 does not have enough tail lights compared to the 2001 - 2010.

I will be adding LED lights and brake flashers to the rear of my machine.
