My guess? They're going to cause lots of glare.

I would have to agree that I think it would be very off putting. I am interesting in knowing if it bothers you while your riding or not?

I didn't notice thie thread when the OP first posted it. I would think that the light reflecting back off the bike while riding would greatly reduce someone's night vision.

Sorry to say guys, I ride loads at night and there is Zero glare to your eyes. Because they are fitted to the "chin garde" facing out I forget its even on.
Think of the position and angle that you are in when you ride, the lights face out not down at your bike, tho I have to say on a dim petrol forecourt its great to see how much fuel your putting in!
I have had so many people ask the same and when they try my helmet on they can't believe no glare.
Drivers comming toward double glance at you for sure, but hey that's gotta be a good thing I say : )
