Headlight Modulator

Got pulled over today and issued a warning for Unlawful/fail use lights - Class D
811.520

Trooper told me to not use my modulator, and that it was unlawful as well as annoying

States right in the Oregon Motorcycle Manual that modulators are permitted

Wish me luck tomorrow

If you were using it at night you are hosed. Only daytime use is permitted.
However, it says nothing about using a disco ball... just sayin....

I thought most modulators have a nighttime cutoff switch via a photoelectric diode, so they'd stop modulating after dark?

Modulators are annoying. When bikes with them pass I end up staring at them, and just like a trail obstacle I end up steering right for them. If you want to be seen install large amber running lights.

They may be annoying but they're required in some states...

Taken from http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV/pages...clecodebk.aspx

Oregon Vehicle Code (chapters 814 and 816)

814.320 Failure to display lighted headlights; exceptions; penalty.
(1) A person commits the offense of failure to display lighted headlights on a moped or motorcycle at all times, if the person operates a moped or motorcycle and does not display lights and illuminated devices specified under ORS 816.320 and 816.330 at all times the motorcycle or moped is upon a highway.
(2) A person may use modulating headlights described under ORS 816.050 during daylight without violating this section, but a person who uses such modulating headlights during limited visibility conditions is in violation of this section.
(3) This section does not apply when specific exceptions with respect to parked vehicles are made under ORS 811.525.
(4) A court may dismiss, without penalty, any charge for violation of this section if the court determines that:
(a) The violation was caused by a malfunction of equipment; and
(b) The equipment that malfunctioned and caused the violation has been repaired or replaced.
(5) The offense described in this section, failure to display lighted headlights on a moped or motorcycle at all times, is a Class B traffic violation.


REQUIREMENTS AND STANDARDS FOR SPECIFIC LIGHTS
816.050 Headlights; rules.
Each of the following is a requirement for headlights as described:
(1) On vehicles required to be equipped with two or more headlights under ORS 816.320 and 816.330 the headlights shall be equally distributed on each side of the front of the vehicle. This subsection does not apply to motorcycles and mopeds.
(2) Headlights shall show a continuously burning light except that:
(a) When permitted under ORS 814.320, headlights for motorcycles or mopeds may have an upper beam that can be modulated between a high and
lower brightness at a rate of 200 to 280 pulses per minute
