Light modulator

I haven't seen this discussed and was curious of your views. I recently bought an 06 Wee. Love the bike. One farkel was a front light modulator. I'm not sure I like it or not. Modulation turns off when dark. A quick double flip of the high beam flipper thingy and turns it off. I'm just not sure if I want the modulator on all the time. Do you have one, pros, cons???

It is common to have the modulator connected to the high beams. If you don't want it on, but still want it available, run with your low beams on. If yours is modulating the lows, contact the maker on how to switch it to highs. Or, just interchange the high & low terminals in the headlight socket.

If we consider engine oil to be the most popular and controversial subject for discussion on enthusiast forums, the subject of headlight modulators is easily #2 here. It is in fact one of the most discussed subjects on said forums.
