    I only got the bright light thing because I felt like a helpless victim of the insanely bright undimmed headlights of irresponsible drivers.
    Then it got to be a bit of a game. Who is brighter.
    Using them turned out to be safer as my ultra brights ended up with both of us dimming our lights for the other driver.
    Plus they made driving at night much safer as night turned into day.
    No worry about people, animals or stalled vehicles in the road.
    Before I installed the lights I had stopped driving at night due to a near deadly encounter with a gigantic horse sleeping in the middle of the road.
    Now I am back to not driving at night here. Probably for the best.

    That's the thing. Regular high beams are annoying, but not blinding. If you have lights that are as bright or brighter than the idiots, they will almost always dim theirs. At least you'll be able to see any idiots on motos w/o tail lights and be able to see where the side of the road is.

    These are examples of light bars.

    Flickering is caused by them not having the right resistors when changing over to led from standard lamp

    A laser pointer, job done.

    I think that they flicker on bikes because of the voltage produced by the bike's magneto. These LEDs fire at a certain voltage threshold hence the strobing effect. The faster the engine revs, the faster they flash. Not good for epilepsy sufferers.

    I think some of these lights have a "strobe" setting.
