Headlights on my Ultra

I have a 2005 Ultra, and I have been getting people flashing their brights on me all the time. This is when my headlights are on low. They are aimed well, and They allow me to see good, but the flashing High beams are really irritating. I suppose my headlights are irritating to them too. Anyone else have this problem?

I do get "Flashed" once in a while...
...I'm thinking (in my case) it's the Driving Lamps, not the Headlight. It doesn't happen often enough so I'm be glad they saw me...

I'll bet that you are either aimed high or that one of the passing lamps is aimed a little left...

I get the same thing and I just think... "Good, they see me."

Mine are aimed dead nuts on per the manual.
That makes the headlight too high. If I hit the high beams, none of the main beam is hitting the road. It goes back in my shop for the winter in a few weeks, and I'll lower it then, since I have the aiming chart in there anyway.

It may be the passing lamps. My 01, with aftermarket bulbs jacked up++, gets flashed once in awhile, but I recently noticed my headlight is point down.

what happens is everytime I change the headlight, I loosen the wrong screw, then tighten up.

Noticed almost all my light is coming from passing lamps. Which actually does a good job.

I running 50w in passing and 100/110 in headlight.

As far as getting flashed, oh well.
