Headlight switch to turn off low beam??

Has anyone ever put in a switch to cut off their low beam?? I am also wondering if I could wire the low beam to the high beam switch and have them both come on at the same time?

I want to be able to turn the light off (and No, not while I'm driving on the street, for all the goody goodies).

I heard I could install a switch to the ground of the low beam and be able to accomplish this.

I am working on a switch for that right now. I want to run my LED's for show and headlights for riding.

Oh come on you're turning off the wrong one. You're suppose to shut off the tail light when you're running from the cops. Not the headlight.

I wired both my headlights to turn on/off with the high beam switch. however, i converted both my projectors to low beam projectors, so no more high beam for me

Apparently this mod does not work when your bike glows in the dark.....starting to hate that mod
