I can see the thinking behind this one.
Its because when drivers see two lights coming & the lights are close together, they think its a car far away & not a bike close up.
Good thinking - or bad? Make your own mind up, but i CAN see the logic. . . certainly at night.
The small "parking light" is completely hidden as its nowhere near as bright as the headlights.
That said, i have both mine on head and dipped. . .
