"Full beam doesn't work"
I had heard that - have you tried the Viagra thread that is running?
I think motorcyclists are much more sensible now than when I was a teenager and got my first bike in the 80's. everyone riding including myself were much much younger and completely bonkers. They are all old farts now trundling along at 40mph, pulling over in villages and getting the thermos out rather than pulling wheelies down the high street and going to the pub!
I would like Another big bike but my supervisor won't let me have one. I'm only allowed to go out on the 100cc scooter "pig" if I promise to behave.
I always ride with dipped lights. Full beam doesn't work.

I will always try to move and give bikers room to pass if there is the chance to do so. I think many drivers are jealous of the advantage bikers have and just resent that.
Back on topic, surely Sweden had this law many years ago and Saab and Volvo produced all cars with permanently lit headlights. Even in bright sunlight it makes you much more visible. Should be universal law imho.
And don't get me on the idiots who drive in poor conditions with only parking lights on!

In the UK I have actually on several occasions had cars or vans go the other way and try and block you coming up or past!
Sorry off topic but just sayin!
No big news. In Italy it has been mandatory for the last few years, on all not urban roads. So be advised if you drive down here.
But I understand that talking about Switzerland it appears more fancy.....
