I was tootin' across a Nevada back road one evening and coming the other way was a GL18. He appeared to have his brights on and it was getting to the point that I couldn't see anything but those lights. I had flicked him a couple times and finally just turned the bright on and left it. He flicked his brights at me! As he went by I figured out what bike is was. He had a passenger and trailer and hadn't compensated apparently. That was with stock halogens.
Anyway, I couldn't see enough to even know my position in the lane. Had there been anything in the road, well...
And not that long ago, in town, a lifted pickup blinded me and I hit a German Shepard. Killed the dog and did some damage to the bike. I don't think it's a good idea to have other drivers blinded by anybody's lights.
I know there are laws, but they're not enforced.
Why ain't we ridin'?
