Oh we get it: you are leather-queens in your easy-rider drag. You need to keep your headlights on bright and your pipes loud to distract attention from your wide butts and overhanging bellies.
"Saves lives"?! That lame excuse dissipates in the light of facts (Insurance Information Institute). Your real threats are your own alcohol-drug use, speed, aggressive driving and diminished physical and mental capacities.
If you're safer by blinding me with your headlights does it not fallow that I am safer by returning the favor?
In the years I rode I dimmed my lights for oncoming traffic. Now my bicycle light is about as bright as a flashlight. I am responsible for my own safety.
Being loud, offensive and aggressive may sustain your macho delusions but does not increase your safety.
You know that.
