    When I first posted, there was absolutely nothing! So I added the first reply, and now it appears as the text of my thread!



    (Nevermind! Sorry!)

    I guess this means this thread has no depth perception?! :confused:

    Feel free to enlighten us with the original thought for the thread. Otherwise we'll just keep guessing.

    Yes, of course! Fair enough, guys...

    Someone in another thread mentioned how on a motorcycle, motorists would often cut in front of him.

    I think two headlights, instead of only one, aid in revealing the oncoming speed of a vehicle, much as having two eyes allows greater depth perception.

    If the lights are close enough together, they will appear as one at a distance.

    Pete, I agree with you on this one.

    Beyond eight feet or so, we use other cues, apart from the binocular focusing we normally think of as depth perception, to establish distance of an object. The size of objects, distance between lights, brightness etc. all play a part.

    I use a combination of a 15 W halogen light along with an LED light. They are close together on the handlebars, but since the lights have a different glow, it catches motorist attention.
