I didn't say run nothing. I run my Kristas like you, at 20%, with yellow covers. I do not run my headlight on bright in traffic.
Think about how many more people pull aside for those ambulances, cops and fire trucks.
It isn't the ones who see you, it is the one who doesn't. He hit a texter. No amount of light would have prevented that!
This is getting entertaining...need to get some popcorn.
Yeah I never intended it to be a pissing match. I just wanted clarification from people more experienced than me.
How dare you?!?!?
I'll be in northern California week after next getting a Russell Day Long custom seat. If they don't like my lights I'll let you know. The Darlas with yellow covers are always on while the Ericas are only on at night. Don't normally use the factory aux lights unless I want to entertain the kids in the neighborhood. They say with them all on I look like Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Lookout for a bald little super trooper with glasses.
I was glad to get out of CA.
Was never pulled over for the above setup (Sevina/Darla combo with BMW OEM Aux lights)
But did have an aggressive state trooper yell at me over his PA system for NOT attempting an unsafe pass of two bicycles coming down from Skyline drive towards Scott’s Valley on a 1.5 lane blacktop that is 10mph continuous corners and no forward viz for about 14 miles. He kept on hounding me to pass even though it didn’t seem safe.
So eventually I put the hammer down on my BMW M3 4.0 L V8, on a short straight, rocket by the bikes in the left lane giving them a wide berth and scoot back into my lane before the next corner.
Next thing the statey is on my ass with cherries blazing shouting through the PA “BMW DRIVER, CALM DOWN!”
Been running Darlas with yellow covers, 90% in Northern California.
Not one complaint from any officers, yet.
This is ADVRider, with 300K members. You will get plenty of opinions. Some you will agree with and some you won't. It is up to you to decide what to listen to.
Yeah, they just didn't feel like getting out of the car..... probably getting some road head.
But you didn’t say where you live now...
Ha! I’m still on the run!
....oh, Texas, I see now in yer avatar. My bad.
So how are things in Texas now that you're out of awful California...?
Oh but this is a thread about lights...
FWIW in CA anyways, the amber running lights along the front bumper are not required lighting and are not regulated. Also, they aren’t required to me maintained like a required light. Being that they aren’t a projecting light, there is no restriction as to how many you can have. They are different from the required lighting such as headlamps, clearance lamps and identification lamps.
Also, lights such as Clearwater and Denali are not required to be DOT approved as they aren’t required. Just the headlamp is. But being they are projecting lights, you are limited to the number of lights allowed to be on.
That was my point.
That said, if you cover your "projecting" lamps with yellow lenses, and keep them turned down, they will not usually draw the ire of the police, as they look like marker lamps.
Unless you’re me, then you get pulled over and hassled.
Cops wife said no, his boss said yes and then you crossed his path... victim of circumstance, maybe?
