Quote--There are alot of states that don't require headlights.
Sure --give the cages a really good reason to say "I didn't see the bike" --
not to mention the fight with the insurance companies you'll no doubt encounter!
Seriously though--I may not wear a helmet all the time, but I would never consider riding without a headlight. Mine is on " hi/bright" all day long until I have to dim it at dark. The more light the better you'll be seen!
