Default Flashing high beam

Just wondering if anyone uses the flashing high beam on their bike.

I don't have a flashing high beam on my 2011 Vegas. When did that feature get added?

I believe he's talking about the modulating headlight that flashes. I personally think they are very annoying.

{edit} Here's a vid of a modulated headlight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...aqzM5vk_o#t=47

it's a mod that can be added to catch the cagers attention. I've seen them on a few cruisers around here.

Not a bad idea at all, but would be hell on the bulb and or electronics if using HID.

I have a headlight modulator connected to the low beam, as it should be, not to the high beam. I replaced the photocell that prevents its nighttime use with a handlebar mounted switch, so I can choose whenever I want to use it. Its great for getting left lane bandits to move over and as a "light horn" when approaching shopping center driveways, etc.. I can not begin to count the times it got cagers attention with them hitting their brakes. The Kisan device is an easy plug and play unit. I won't leave home without one. As I've said before; I'm doing all I can to preserve what life is left in this ol' guy.

These and the flashing brake light are very annoying.

That is EXACTLY the point of having them. If it doesn't annoy, it isn't seen.
