Tim, good for you for asking any questions. If people think it's "stupid", well, to hell with 'em is what I say. That said, of course there is a way to have one headlight modulate and one be constant or for them to modulate alternatively... just look at any police bike (a friend of mine is actually in charge of the local police bikes electrics). I couldn't possibly begin to tell you how you'd go about this in terms of the electrical necessities to obtain such a set up but I can tell you that what companies like Kissan and Diamond Star produce are given the green light by the DOT, which means you can LEGALLY run it. I personally wouldn't want to be on the non-police bike w/non-DOT approved lights.
It's known that I'm a HUGE fan of the headlight modulator and every bike in my stable has one. I will not own a bike that doesn't. I'll second the question as to why are you concerned w/annoying other drivers? If you are "annoying" them then by definition they are aware of you which means they will not run you over (officer, I just didn't see the motorcycle). Could you please explain your concerns re annoying other drivers? I would really be interested in understanding your perspective.
BigB... agreed, the Strom lights are bright but it's not the brightness that makes the difference, it's the flashing. Ask any deer... it'll freeze in the road to the bright light but react and move to flashing light (and, of course, sound). I'd be willing to bet if you rode a bike w/a modulator you'd understand completely. Hmmm...come to think of it I am coming thru Buckeye land. :wink:
