So maybe bright ain’t always right??
I am sticking to standard H4.
I tend to agree. The brighter the bulbs, the more difficult it makes for oncoming traffic to see where they're going, so in turn, they try and fit brighter bulbs etc etc.......
Never ride my bike with a headlight, unless it's dark. Found the bobbing forks make people think you're flashing them out of junctions with disasterous results.
If I can't see very well at night, I reduce my speed until it's not a problem.
