That is a good idea. While the sharp cutoff is nice because it throws the maximum amount of light without blinding anyone (unless you wheelie in front of oncoming traffic, then you can watch as the entire interior of the car lights up!), it would be nice to not see the sharp edge bouncing around. I'll play with it when I get it apart.

This would definitely help when first setting the bike up. I spent a lot of time hopping on and off the bike to get the level adjusted so I can see and not blind everyone in front of me. I still have to adjust my light when I'm loaded/unloaded because the bike pitches so much when weight is added.
