Sweet! And trippy. So varying speed, dipping front forks by a dab of the brake, headlight modulators.... anything to get that 'dot' (you and/or your headlight(s)) to reappear for the person looking at you.

I already tend to do some of this, just unwittingly. Especially in blind intersections and approaching busy left hand turns. I've also noticed that in the few months I've had the Tuono, NO ONE has pulled out in front of me. It happened weekly on my 919. *knock on wood*

Weak headlight maybe? Or just because it's a single filament / single bulb, vs. twin bulb?

WTF BRAIN!!!!

i perma ride with high beam on during the day.

Someone making a left in front of me is my worst nightmare on a moto so when ever i see someone going for a left, or perched to make a left in front of me ill usually flash a low high (or give the throttle a quick jab to bounce the suspension to simulate a low high flash), and move over in my lane to give myself a lil more room in the case of the person making the left.

Installing the HID on mine has definitely reduced the number of idiots who have pulled out in front of me - not just on the 919 but the 700 as well.
