My old Tbird had highs, lows and fogs, and all 6 would run if you pulled the turn signal stalk, but I don't know if that would count, as the highs and lows were side by side, 6" apart in the same housing.

Likely the fogs are killed when you put on the high beams.

Yep. You can have as many sets as you want, as long as 4 bulbs max at a time are on.
Also in wv if the are above the main headlight they have to have a hard non clear cover on them when on the roads. Well for cars.

A little guy dumped his big Ultra on Sunday up on 178 just north of the NC line, got a little banged up. Little-man syndrome will get you killed if you don't know WTF you're doing on a bike...

I know a former MX racer who was messing around at his farm/riding school who died at walking speed. He wasn't wearing a helmet. The bike slipped from under him while going over a spot of mud, and he hit his head on a tree root that was flush with the ground. A freak occurance to be sure, but with a good helmet on he'd not have died.
