In the day time i have my high beams on, and at night i just have a single beam. I always keep the revs high so cars can notice me.

High beams whether day or night. Anything to help you be seen better.

Always both, but I have my highbeam aimed down a little so it doesn't blind the oncoming drivers/riders as bad

My high beams never go off. You're much safer running both lights day or night. However, if you do ride on two lane roads don't blind the other cars.

They hardly ever see you. You've got to run to keep from hiding. Low beam or high beam, always expect that they can't see you. That's why I run HID because the light flickers and they see you more times than average.

I run my high beams all the time, night and day. I only turn them off if the other person flashes there lights at me. Is this wrong? I think that hey....at least they see me. Right?

You still have to ride like you're invisible.
