While riding along the highway on Saturday night, in the rain, on roads I didn't know very well, up near Orbost, I thought again of a discussion in which I was involved at the BBQ, that of motorcycle headlights. Surely it is not beyond the ability of modern designers to computer model the required light spread of a motorcycle light when the bike is cranked over, and fit moveable lights to cover the dark patches we presently experience? These could be controlled by a central chip which measures the angle of lean (giving an indication of the sharpness of the corner) and moves the lights (one on each side of the headlight?) to cover that area. If car drivers had to put up with the level of lighting most bikes provide in the critical area of cornering, they'd revolt, surely?
