7. Group Riding


If one high beam is good, then two, three, four, five … a dozen high beams traveling down the road is even better! (And then there’s the fun of group rides.) In the daylight, the sheer number of headlights that don’t form neatly into pairs, as they would on cars, will make drivers wonder – perhaps even think – about what they are seeing. For fun, have the lead rider change her position from one side of the lane to the other while the followers adjust themselves into the new staggered formation. You’ll really mess with the minds of the drivers in front of you. At night, riding in a staggered formation allows for a broader spread of light than just the headlights of a single motorcycle. So, you can actually see better, too!
