I think a lot of us old guys were trained to ride with high beams back in the day when headlights were not as bright as they are now. And with two modern-design headlights on the Strom it really is overkill to run with the high beams on.
We have that cool trigger for flashing the high beams, but it doesn't work if they are already on. I use it to flash cars that look like they might pull out in front of me.
