It's missing some of the lighting rules for Ohio. A lot of illegal bikes here.

Some rules that one HEARS are not rules that are in the book.
For instance in Tx. turn signals are not a requirement. Yet one hears remarks like if it was made with them they need to be on the bike and working. Not true that is not what the safety book says. As a matter of fact it doesn't even mention turn signals on bikes at all.
Mufflers is another area that is missunderstood because of the no noise limit. A muffler is required, but noise level is not checked.
Ride on loud Texans. lol

I have the book. My wife is studying for her endorsement. It states there is a limit of two headlights on a motorcycle here. So legally lightbars can be an issue. Depending on whether the law calls them headlights or driving lights. With a limit of 15" from seat to handgrip level. Apehangers are not permitted.

You are right on, on that. The head light is the big one, the other two are smaller and they are driving light as you said. Some bikes do have two big head lights.
