Default Headlight modulator

Does anyone have a suggestion for a headlight modulator for a 2013 Victory CrossCountry Tour? I read somewhere that you can't hook it up to the high beam ?
Thanks
Jim

At least in California (but most likely in most other states as well), modulating your low beam is illegal. So if you don't put it on the high beam, where else will you put it?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Well perhaps but I read somewhere you can't modulate the high beam on a victory cross roads tour . So I am asking. I have a honda vtx and I gave the high beam on that modulated . So perhaps someone could chime in with an answer.

A modulating headlight actually increases the life of the bulbs. And so what if YOU. Gate them. They work. I really don't give a shit who I irritate as long as they don't pull in front of me.

YOU are a rider. You look for bikes.

MANY other people don't.
How in the hell can you dog a fellow rider for trying to be safer????
Flashing lights draw the eye.

Be safe guys!!!

my point, flashing light, tons of lights, no lights, if the person thats going to hit you isnt looking at you they wont see you whether your a semi or a pedal bike! one time i almost got hit i was sitting at a stop light, summertime, straight pipes, car next to me window open, light turned green we started moving and she cut into my lane, had no idea i was there, my bike was loud and almost as long as her car, still no idea i was there!! so you can do what you want, add all the lighting you want, no guarantee they will see you!

No, it does not. Life of a bulb is decreased each time it's turned on, except LED's, which is not what we're talking about.

So, where have you been getting your information lately?
