I will say it's probably unlikely I can run these in normal traffic so I'll be switching on & off as necessary. I've tried to angle them in such a way they aren't focused directly into oncoming traffic but they are still VERY bright, I'd expect to piss people off. Regardless my goal was more light in offroad and dark/desolate road situations so I'm cool w/ that... I may get a set of the Amber light covers that might help diffuse the light a bit so we'll see.

I run these all the time, although i do not ride much after dark. Not many people seem to be bothered. I think people are becoming used to brighter lights with HID's, etc out there. One thing to consider is that I have mine mounted on the lower crash bar (BMW) so they are relatively low....the beauty of this is that when you pull up behind a cage, the lights are below their rear window so you are not blinding them in their mirrors.
