Any thoughts?
I stumbled onto that decades ago with an old vetter fairing and the running lights down low. I frequently got comments about how visible I was, and how well they could judge me. From friends on their bikes, to cars at traffic lights. The difference was and is substantial.

Big Harley's carry this advantage as well, it's their stock lighting configuration. They also have physically large running lights.
