I never heard of this full beam stupidity before, as if temporarily blinding the oncoming traffic will somehow help you to survive?! And in the U.K. a little nod of the head is how bikers say hello.

Don't buy that logic on #1. The single lights just looks like 2 lights even farther away so they're merged. Not that just flipping on your wide-lensed highs is a good solution. My main bike has 1 main and 2 lower-mounted aux beams, so let them makes of that triangle what they will!

My bike, and many others, do not have a second assembly for high beam. That said I still use high beam the same as I would in a car and go low beam near oncoming traffic. Around here, the wave would not be mistaken for turning left. I can't remember the last time I saw someone use hand signals. Car only drivers certainly don't know them. And the wave is done under the handlebar and not usually where people are turning because you need the clutch at those locations.

every motorcyclist? come on man when is youtubers going to put truth in their titles? the first one is just stupid. only a goon would run high beams at an approaching vehicle. the 2nd one is nonsense. it is likely the majority of people do not even know about using the arm as a turn or stop signal and i have not seen anyone do that is many years. i drop my hand when passing a motorcyclist but it is not at an angle that should ever be mistaken for a turn or stop signal. the third one is also stupid. the suspension is pre-loaded by the riders weight. it depends on the curve, the visibility and if there is anything in the curve like gravel whether you should coast through, brake or maintain speed. there is no simple hard and fast rule about taking a curve but it is better to be cautious than not. that does not mean slow down, it just means be wary and look closely at the road because hitting loose gravel in a curve is no fun. also be on the lookout for animals and errant cage drivers. those are real hazards.

I grew up riding on the back seat with my dad. Rider wave is to put your left hand low so the wind doesn't catch it & also doesn't mean turn left.

On long tours especially at night in remote areas, bikes not only use full beams but also extra led lights. Motorists get used to the norms and it's not as dangerous as told in the video

Bicycle riders around here use some sort of fusion meltdown powered high-beams, then they make them flash. The result is a blinded driver with a target fixation directly at the rider.

At night I wander from one tyre track to the other. A wandering headlight should produce curiousity in a driver observing it and help the headlight break out of any camouflage or looming. Never assume you've been seen though. I nod or only raise my hand off the bar, heel of hand still connected. The cornering tip is almost too concise that it could be dangerous. With modern suspension it's unlikely that a bike will be wallowing dangerously simply because it is "unloaded" in a corner. Suspension is always under load, I.e., gravity and weight. And it loads up some degree simply due to cornering forces and loads. What circumstance places a bike in danger should they enter a corner at a constant perhaps tentative speed (for that bend) with stable weight distribution between the tyres?

Wel, naturally if you’re driving in one of those “left side of the road” countries, your throttle hand is on the side of oncoming traffic, which doesn’t lend itself to removing it from the bar to acknowledge other riders. In right side countries, your left hand, which is tasked only with the clutch, turn signal and high beam duties, is free to wave. That said, the proper way to “wave” at oncoming riders is to extend your left hand below the waist, usually with sort of modified “peace” sign.

I’m American. I just drop my left hand into sight and wave with a little shake of the fingers, and that’s only when I’m on a straight stretch or otherwise not that busy/involved. I don’t wave at other cars when I’m driving, not even when it’s another driver of the same make and model as my semi-rare, kinda cool cars and trucks, so I don’t really sweat it that much. Riding safely and comfortably is FAR more important to me than silly tradition.

Instead of leaving your high beams on flash it every 4 seconds. This will draw attention to you without annoying or blinding the drivers in the oncoming lane. This also saved my life. Once I was riding home and it got dark way earlier than I anticipated due to cloudy weather. Also the wind had picked duo and on the interstate I was fighting 50mph cross winds that randomly shifted and I could hardly ride straight. So I stopped and took some mountain roads home. They were single lane roads with no double yellow line. If 2 fat cars were to cross each other one of them would have to stop and let the other pass to do so safely. I was terrified some guy is going to run into me on a blind turn. I went super slow and flashed my head light slowly. The car drivers in these parts had some sort of code I guess where they would flash to acknowledge the other vehicle. It reassured me so much and I got home really late but I got home safe

Not sure other countries do it, but in UK most riders tilt their heads slightly to salute another passing rider. I've also seen others using their left leg to say thank you. That leaves the hands always where they are meant to be so that one is in control of the bike.

Intelligent, considered, informative and damed entertaining. Your a pro mate. Perhaps you may of added that lights on during the day also makes it more difficult for drivers to judge your speed....they see you but pull out on you anyway ! I ve always thought there should be a small light aiming towards a rider (obviously so it doesnt reduce vision in any way ) from his own bike to illuminate him/her and any high viz on jackets etc. It would be much easier for car drivers to see riders and judge there speed.

I drive a rig, mostly at night. if someone has their brights on behind me I turn my mirrors so I cannot see them at all. if they are in front I return the favour, and since my lights are driven by a much bigger electrical system they cannot see at all. At nights brights are an annoying distraction, turn them off, it is dumb to distract anyone controlling any lethal lump of machinery at night
