What's wrong with that? At least you know you've been seen! For us motorcyclists there isn't a thing like too much light. I am sorry guys how can you complain about too much light and people flashing at you at night!? Be glad, be very happy and ride on!
I have a single beam set with the extra slim ballast in an aftermarket 7" headlight and and 2 x 20W halogen lamps as attention getters. Set the HID up as a low beam but tilted slightly higher. Don't have a high beam anymore, don't need it with that kind of setup. Would never go back to that H4 candle light!
I am very happy that I am recognized during the day and have a very good visibility at night:
However, I am still riding as if I was invisible ...
Have 2 seasons on the HID setup, no issues. Bought 2 HID replacement bulbs for a song at the same time I bought the complete set, so with a spare slim ballast and 3 HID replacement bulbs I am good for 10 years or more!
