    I'm not so sure I want to get into Politics again.

    The last time I figured I could make Millions in this state (Every other politician does)

    I ran for, and won a seat on the City Council.

    I proposed a State wide Democratic Protologist Vending machine.

    The Machine was ingenious.

    You insert a CC in the door handle.

    You receive 1 token. You step inside the booth.

    Back up to the clamp, insert your token.

    The clamp then closes around your neck.

    In an instant your head is extracted.

    The Booths were available in a variety of colors.

    Unfortunately- The other council members Poo Pooed my idea, And it went into the dumps.


    Fast forward to 2020.
    Honda gave me another Idea.
    I have 23,678 of these units in storage.

    I could build a Satellite warehouse in Tipton.

    I can add new lettering. (Thank you Honda)

    I run my high beams all the time, even in the dark and I almost never get flashed from oncoming traffic. I used to get flashed all the time on my 2007 Wing.

    Never had headlights as bright as my 2007 Wing.

    That sounds wrong, and not a lawful order. I think you did the right thing. Unless it was night-time, and you were coming up on someone, or blinding oncoming traffic.

    This is why I always ride with my modulating high beams and fog lights on during the day. My fog lights are the brighter than most, if not all, that I've seen. The only ones that came close were the six-shooters.

    .An easy solution is. run your hi beams all the time, if nothing else, you'll be easier to see.

    I was alarmed when Lanny was following me at only 6-10 bike lengths.
    It was truly amazing how much brighter the Hi's are than the Low's.
    Personally-I doubt the fogs would add anything,after seeing the Hi's in action on the very same ride.

    I believe you are correct in your thoughts on why the trucker was flashing at you. It was a Holy crap-where did that bike come from all of a sudden?

    I bet he soiled himself too at that point!.

    I hope you had your High Beams on??

    I told Lanny to turn his on in DV. You'd be surprised how fast the Low beams fade at distance!!.

    With his High beams on. I had no problem seeing him at any time.

    Honda's ST1800 LED fog lights are smaller than previous generation fog's were. (Not much help at distance)

    He was coming from Shoshone marked here going south to the 15. Like kwthorn said, not many options of Interstate if the trucks want to get to places they need to deliver.
