While the most obvious suggestion on this list, riding with your high beam on during daylight hours is all too often overlooked, you may wonder how much more visible that increase in lumens will make you. Remember, the angle the light is thrown out of your headlight changes, too. Your low beam is designed to keep the light out of the eyes of approaching drivers. Since the high beam is supposed to throw the light further down the road to allow you more reaction time at night, it’s set to the perfect angle to inform people of your presence. While drivers may find this annoying at dusk, if you’re bothering them, they know you’re there. Additionally, the visual environment at dusk is quite difficult, so you need a way to stand out.
