I just dun understand the rationale behind turning the headlights on all the time, even during the day... :confused:

and i dun understand why must off during the day... its not like leaving ur lights on during the day will make ur bike spoilt... i'd rather leave it on than 'act sard' and donate money to govt...

some people workplace quite near, so the trip is very short. if on the headlight, the trip may not be enough to charge back the starter+headlight. very fast the batt will be drained.

Is that a fact or just an assumption? :?

Well my point of view.....riding without helmet remove protection from critical

parts of a rider at local road speed. Turning on full lightings at night or rainning is necessary to be seen by other roadusers.

 

But full lightings on a bright day only help reduce the lifespan of battery, regulators/rectifiers, bulbs, alternators and wirings. SG is also pretty hot during the day . Afterall it will not provide protections like a helmet or car. As proven by riders, un-responsible drivers which change lane without care won't bother. During daytime, riders are huge enough to be seen.

 

And of course it's up to individual to choose since this action carry a fine.

if that "someone" workplace is so near untill the trip cannot charge back the starter,headlight,i guess his workplace might just be walking distance.

so why ride to work,just walk to work save petrol too.:cheeky:

I think he meant that the riding time is only abt 10-15mins, so battery can't charged enough. My riding time to work is about 7-9 minutes total.

Be happy always :-)

Ride alert at all times :angel:

basically its up to personal preference in the end...of course singapore set the rule that must be on at all times...but singaporeans often break the rules...don't they?

 

anyway the thing about battery wearing out...once you start to sit on your bike and ride...things start wearing out...its part and parcel of life...but i do admit there isn't really a big difference whether you on the headlight anot during the day...especially those hot and bright days...not much difference

this is utter nonsense... if it is so damaging, bike makers would have installed the headlight on/off switch on EVERY bike...
